BREAKING: Joe Biden Officially Announces He’s Running For “Re-Election” In New Video

Joe Biden officially announced he’s running for “re-election” in a new video posted on Twitter.

While other 2024 Democratic presidential candidates such as RFK Jr. gave hour-long speeches at venues with large crowds, Biden decided to do none of that and released a 3-minute video.

In the video Biden calls out “MAGA Extremists” for ruining the country.

Take a look:

Here’s what Fox News reported:

Biden announced that he and Vice President Harris will seek re-election in a video released early Tuesday morning.

In the video titled “Freedom,” President Biden echoed his 2020 campaign message of battling for the “soul of our nation,” uniting the country, and supporting the middle class, his campaign said. The video opens with footage of the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol protest.

“Freedom. Personal freedom is fundamental to who we are as Americans. There’s nothing more important. Nothing more sacred,” Biden, 80, said in the video. “That’s been the work of my first term: To fight for our Democracy. This shouldn’t be a red or blue issue.”

He added: “This is not a time to be complacent. That’s why I’m running for re-election. Because I know America. I know we are good and decent people. And I know we are still a country that believes in honesty and respect, and treating each other with dignity. That we’re a nation where we give hate no safe harbor. And we believe that everyone is equal, and that everyone should be given a fair shot to succeed in this country.”

Check out what CNBC reported:

Joe Biden on Tuesday launched his reelection bid, as he seeks to win over Americans who are tired of stubbornly high inflation or worried about his ability to serve a second term in the White House.

“When I ran for President four years ago, I said we are in a battle for the soul of America. And we still are. The question we are facing is whether in the years ahead we have more freedom or less freedom. More rights or fewer,” Biden says in a video announcing his campaign. “I know what I want the answer to be and I think you do too. This is not a time to be complacent. That’s why I’m running for re-election.”

If Biden won a second term, he would extend his streak as the oldest person to sit in the Oval Office: He would be 82 on Inauguration Day 2025. Despite concerns about his age among Democrats, no serious opposition to Biden emerged, even as the Republican field grows larger.

Polling shows Democrats prefer a candidate other than Biden, but there isn’t a consensus on who that alternative would be. An NBC News poll released Sunday found 70% of Americans, including 51% of Democrats, believe Biden should not seek a second term. Half of voters who don’t want Biden to run say his age is a “major” factor.
