New Delhi: Joe Biden on Tuesday announced to run for reelection as the President of the United States. The 80-year-old said that he is running for re-election as US President in 2024 to stand up for democracy and fundamental freedoms. Biden, a Democrat, made the announcement in a promotional video, less than three years after he defeated his predecessor Donald Trump.
Joe Biden’s campaign launch video promised to protect Americans’ personal freedoms, seizing a theme often heralded by Republicans, while attacking ‘MAGA extremists’ for targeting women’s reproductive choice, Social Security and voting rights.
The three-minute long video begins with images of the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump, and draws stark contrasts between Biden’s vision for America and that of his Republican predecessor.
“Freedom – personal freedom – is fundamental to who we are as Americans,” Biden said in the video that kicks off his 2024 bid for a second term in the White House, exactly four years after he launched his 2020 campaign.
“Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours. That’s why I’m running for reelection as President of the United States. Join us. Let’s finish the job,” Joe Biden said in a tweet.
Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours.
US Vice President Kamala Harris also announced to run for re-election in the 2024 US elections.
