Now just 10 or so months into his first term as President, Joe Biden has been largely lambasted as an ineffectual leader, and as one of the main reasons why the Democrats are in real danger of losing their congressional majority in 2022’s midterm elections.
But, despite this, (and the underwater approval rating that Biden just can’t seem to shake), it appears as though things are still moving forward, full steam ahead, for 2024.
President Joe Biden is not giving way and will run for reelection in 2024, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed late Monday.
“That’s his intention,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One, underlining varied reports the 79-year-old has been telling advisers and staff he will be back.
And then, in what appeared to be an attempt at undercutting any public concerns about Biden’s age or health in three years:
“The President remains a healthy, vigorous, 78-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief,” Kevin O’Connor, the White House physician, wrote.
Biden’s approval rating has been steadily sinking in recent weeks, thanks to the president’s inability to achieve any real world success, despite a number of “easy fixes” having been provided to him and passed on.
