US President Joe Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed during Monday briefing aboard Air Force One, APA reports.

Asked whether the commander-in-chief would be considering a 2024 bid, Psaki relayed to reporters that he would indeed be jumping back into the campaign seat.

“He is, that’s his intention,” Psaki said in response, effectively confirming reports that the president has been speaking to advisers on the matter.

The Washington Post earlier reported on Saturday that Biden had been engaged in talks with members of his inner circle about the looming presidential election cycle, and that officials have been actively working to reassure allies to ease concerns of a Republican comeback.
