US President Joe Biden says his “expectation” is to run for reelection in 2024, an apparent effort to douse speculation that the oldest person to assume the office will step down after a single term.

“My plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation,” Biden, 78, tells reporters when asked about his political future.

When pressed, he adds that he is “a great respecter of fate” and does not make firm plans so far in advance, but that if he does run in 2024 he “would fully expect” that Vice President Kamala Harris will be on the ticket.
