On Tuesday, President Biden made an official announcement declaring his intention to run for a second consecutive term as the President of the United States of America in the upcoming 2024 presidential election. With this announcement, he has thrown his hat into the ring for what is sure to be a fiercely contested political campaign.
It has been widely speculated that Vice President Kamala Harris will be Joe Biden’s running mate in the 2024 presidential election. This speculation is fueled by Biden’s own statement made in January of 2022, where he said Harris would be his running mate.
Joe Biden has made history by becoming the oldest person to ever hold the position of President of the United States,. Born on November 20, 1942, he was already 78 years old when he took office on January 20, 2021. If he were to run for re-election in 2024 and win, he would be 82 years old by the time he finishes his second term in 2028. This would make him the oldest president in U.S. history, surpassing the record previously held by Ronald Reagan, who left office at the age of 77.
