President Joe Biden, having just celebrated his 80th birthday, is set to announce his 2024 presidential campaign shortly after the holidays.
The news comes via White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who explained the President’s intentions during a Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council summit on Monday.
“The president will make that decision. I expect it shortly after the holiday,” Klain said. “I expect the decision will be to do it.”
The President has repeatedly insisted he will run again in 2024 despite concerns over his age – he’d be 86 at the end of a second term – and frequently observed mental lapses.
Biden has said only family concerns or a surprise turn of events could dissuade him from running again.
