As former President DONALD TRUMP continues to tease a 2024 run and tightens his grip on the Republican party, JOE BIDEN’s resolve to run in 2024 has grown, according to several Democrats connected to the White House.
Biden has previously declared that, ”My plan is to run for reelection,” but some Democrats felt he had to say that to avoid being seen as a lame duck.
Democrats in and around the White House, however, are increasingly convinced that barring some huge shift, Biden is going to run again, despite the fact he’d be 86 years old at the end of a second term.
“Does a secret voluntary one-termer put four-term Franklin over the fireplace?” quipped one Democrat connected to the White House, referring to the FDR portrait hanging in Biden’s Oval Office.
