CBS’ Nancy Cordes asked Biden, “Have you decided whether you are going to run for reelection in 2024?”
She noted the president has not set up a reelection campaign yet as Trump had at this point during his presidency.
Biden laughed and replied, “My predecessor needed to. My predecessor, oh God I miss him.”
He responded to her question of whether he is planning on running again, “The answer is yes, my plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation.”
When asked if Biden expects he will be running against Trump, “Oh come on,” he said as he laughed.
Biden added, “I don’t even think about it. I have no idea. I have no idea if there will be a Republican party, do you? I know you don’t have to answer my question but I mean, do you?”

During a Fox News interview last week, host Maria Bartiromo asked Trump if he is considering running again, as IJR reported.
“Based on every poll, they want me to run again, but we’re going to take a look, and we’ll see. We have first steps first, we have to see what we can do with the House,” Trump said.
He continued, “I think we have a chance of taking back the House. I think we have a chance to do better in the Senate. We need leadership in the Senate, which frankly we don’t have… you have a good chance to take back the Senate and, frankly, we’ll make our decision after that.”
