At 80 years old, Joseph Biden is the oldest sitting president in US history.
Joe Biden, 80, confirmed in an interview with ABC News that he would be running for another term. He agreed that American voters have the legal right to raise the issue of his advancing age, but nonetheless, this does not prevent him from seeking re-election. Well, as for the official announcement of the start of the electoral campaign, it will not happen anytime soon.
“There are many other things that we need to complete in the near future before I launch a full-scale campaign,” the US leader said.
At 80 years old, Joseph Biden is the oldest sitting president in US history. And, of course, public concern about his advanced age has continued since 2020, the start of the politician’s electoral campaign.
However, in an interview, the US president did not unequivocally answer whether he would present his candidacy. True, apparently, his family, and his wife Jill in the first place, wouldn’t mind staying in the White House for another four years.
The day before, during her trip to Africa, the first lady of the United States pointed out, in response to a question from journalists, that Joe Biden “has not yet finished what he started.”
“All that remains at this point is to determine the time and place for the announcement (about participation in the electoral race, ed.)”, the journalists asked Jill Biden.
“Quite a bit,” the First Lady replied.
