Biden admits his 2024 plans are threatened by health

For months now, the official White House position on Joe Biden’s plans for 2024 is that he intends to run for reelection, even though most Americans don’t expect him to, and nearly two-thirds don’t want him to.

But on Wednesday, Biden added a caveat to that promise. When ABC News anchor David Muir asked whether he intends to seek reelection in 2024, Biden said he would… but only if he was in good health.

“Yes, but look, I’m a great respecter of fate,” Biden replied. “Fate has intervened in my life many, many times. If I’m in the health I’m in now—if I’m in good health—then, in fact, I would run again.”

It is not clear what Biden meant by being in good health. White House physician Kevin O’Connor claims Biden is physically fit for duty; however, a cognitive test was not performed. This was a rather curious omission considering that a plurality of voters doesn’t believe Biden is mentally fit to be president, according to a recent poll from Politico.

Biden conceding that health might prevent him from running in 2024 comes on the heels of Kamala Harris not confirming to the Wall Street Journal that Joe Biden plans to run in 2024 and that they haven’t discussed the next election—forcing the White House to clarify.
