President Joe “Multiple Crises” Biden revealed a secret to Rev. Al Sharpton during a private meeting they had in September; namely, the president has the firm intention to run for reelection in the 2024 White House race.
2024 Uncertainty Seems Higher Than Before
Sleepy Joe’s prospects for a second term have become increasingly uncertain in the past few months, due to the numerous crises that are battering the United States on his watch.
The soon-to-be-80 Democrat has been presiding over a practically endless string of crises both at home and abroad.
This stems from the relentless coronavirus pandemic, inflation, energy and supply chain crises, to allowing the invasion of the United States by millions of illegal immigrants.
Let’s also not forget the ridiculous loss of the war of the 20-year war on terror in Afghanistan and emboldening of Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin to wage war on the free world by invading Ukraine.
Reports have abounded more recently that Biden may decide on his own to step back from a potential 2024 Democratic presidential nomination. This could be because of his health and age and Biden may be supplanted by someone like Hillary Clinton.
During a private meeting at the White House last month, however, Empty Shelves Joe may have revealed his real plans for 2024.

Joe Biden told Al Sharpton that he’s running in 2024…in other words, Obama’s 4th term.

Biden is Going to ‘Do It All Again’
During the meeting, which was held on September 2, Biden told Reverend Al Sharpton that he would be running for president once again in 2024. This is according to a report by NBC News, as cited by The Daily Mail.
Sharpton told the president’s decision to his National Action Network. The report cites as its source an official of the network.
“I’m going to do it again,” Biden, who is going to turn 80 in November, told the civil rights activist while they were posing for photos in the Roosevelt Room, the source claimed.
Back in 2020, Sharpton became one of the first Democratic figures who knew that Joe Biden would be running for president. Sleepy Joe is known to have been seeking his advice and the black vote was considered key to his 2020 election.
Biden’s meeting with Al Sharpton was more than two weeks before his TV interview for the 60 Minutes program, in which he cast doubt over his own reelection bid prospects by refusing to declare his firm decision.
In the interview aired on September 18, the Democratic president said his “firm decision” to run for reelection “remains to be seen.” He insisted, for the time being, all he has is “just an intention.”
A formal White House announcement that Biden is going to be a presidential candidate in 2024 would trigger federal election rules on media presence and fundraising.
Biden’s very likely opponent in 2024, President Trump, has been citing the same reason as a justification for not announcing his own bid.
