“It is too early for these kinds of decisions,” the US president said in an interview
US President Joe Biden has announced that he will wait for the mid-term elections to decide whether to run his candidacy for re-election in 2024. “It’s too early to make that kind of decision,” Biden said in an interview for the US network CBS, stressing that “it remains to be seen” whether he will stand for re-election.
Biden cited election laws earlier as a reason he can’t announce a decision. “I am a great respect for fate. And therefore, what I am doing is doing my job. I will do it. I will continue my work in the time frame, after the next election cycle I will decide,” she said.
In the interview, Biden also spoke about former President Donald Trump, noting that the discovery of top secret documents at the Mar-a-Lago estate raises concerns that sensitive data may have been compromised.
The US leader reiterated that he had not been notified prior to the search of Trump’s estate and that he had not asked for details “because I do not want to be involved in the Justice Department investigation.” He added that “he had not personally spoken to anyone” about the national security secrets that may be in the Mar-a-Lago documents, but he said he was confident that his administration and the National Security Council are aware of them.
