Incumbent US President Joe Biden intends to participate in the 2024 presidential race to run for a second term.
White House Speaker Karine Jean-Pierre said this during a briefing in Washington on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“The president intends to run in 2024,” a Biden administration official said.
At the same time, she stressed that it is too early to talk about any features of this process, including against the background of publications with the current low ratings of support for the president among Democrats.
“We are still very far from it,” said Jean-Pierre.
She also stressed that the current administration is making targeted efforts to overcome economic difficulties. In this regard, Jean-Pierre mentioned the efforts of the White House and the president personally Biden to lower global oil prices. In addition, she drew attention to the adoption of a law to stimulate the production of electronic chips, which will significantly reduce the dependence of US production on the supply of chips from China and other countries.
As reported, in November 2024, the next election of the head of the White House should take place in the United States.
