Biden added, “Let me be clear, certain principles of our international system are sancro — sacrosanct.”

Biden has previously been criticized and sparked concern with similar incidents. And polls have repeatedly found a majority of Americans believe he is too old to run for re-election.
However, he has insisted he took a “hard look” at the idea of running again and said he feels “good” about it.
