US President Joe Biden announces his candidature for second term in 2024

On April 25, 2023, United States President Joe Biden announced his bid for a second term in the 2024 presidential election. In a video shared on Twitter with the caption “Let’s Finish The Job”, Biden emphasized the need to continue working towards the betterment of the country and not to be complacent in the face of challenges.

In the tweet, Biden also expressed his concern about the Republican platform and described it as a threat to American freedom. He promised to fight against efforts to limit women’s healthcare, cut social security, and ban books. Biden’s re-election bid comes at a time when the country is grappling with a range of complex challenges, including an ongoing pandemic, climate change, and growing economic inequality.

During his first term in office, Biden oversaw a sharp decline in the country’s unemployment rate, which reached its lowest levels since 1969. However, his economic record has been marred by a 40-year high inflation rate that has caused widespread concern among Americans. Despite this, Biden remains a popular figure within the Democratic Party and has been praised for his leadership during the pandemic.

Biden’s age, however, remains a significant concern for many Americans, as he would be 84 by the end of his second term. Nevertheless, doctors have declared Biden fit for duty following a thorough medical examination in February. The White House has also emphasized Biden’s mental sharpness, which they believe is adequate for the demands of the job.

Biden’s announcement sets the stage for what is expected to be a highly contested election in 2024. The coming months will see a flurry of political activity as candidates from both parties gear up for what is likely to be one of the most closely watched elections in recent history.
