On Tuesday, President Joe Biden officially announced his intention to seek re-election, which ends months of speculation about his plans. This announcement comes exactly four years after he launched his 2020 campaign. In a video titled “Freedom,” Biden emphasized his fight for democracy during his first term and warned against the potential harm posed by “MAGA extremists” who seek to reduce social safety nets and curtail personal freedoms. He expressed concerns about cutting social security, dictating women’s healthcare decisions, banning books, limiting personal relationships, and making it more difficult for people to vote. Biden emphasized the need for vigilance and urged people not to be complacent in the face of these challenges. He reiterated that the battle for the soul of America is still ongoing and that the upcoming years will determine whether citizens have more or fewer freedoms and rights.
Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours.

Numerous American online news portals have reported that President Joe Biden has announced his intention to run for re-election in 2024. However, the question remains: does the American public want him to return for another term? According to a recent NBC News poll, only 26% of respondents believe Biden should run again, while 70% think he should not. In contrast, the poll shows that 35% of respondents believe former President Donald Trump should run again, while 60% do not think he should. These results suggest that Trump currently holds more support than Biden.
It is ultimately up to the American public to decide who will become the next President of the United States. It’s worth noting that Biden used the campaign slogan “2020” during his previous election, and at age 82, he would not be subject to an age limit if he were to run for re-election.
