A biographer discussing President Biden recently mentioned that it would be unexpected, yet not entirely shocking, if the president chose not to run in the 2024 elections before the year ends.
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Chuck Todd queried Franklin Foer about his upcoming book, focusing on Biden’s initial two years as president, and how astonished he would be if Biden opted out of a consecutive term.
Foer remarked, “I’d find it unexpected, but not wholly so.” He added that Biden frequently uses the term “fate” when discussing his life journey. “Given Biden’s deep religiosity, the term ‘fate’ holds profound spiritual implications. He often comments on the unpredictability of fate, which to me seems like an unfinished thought regarding his personal trajectory.”
Though Biden has already declared his intention to seek reelection, there hasn’t been any indication of a change in his decision. With the 2024 election on the horizon, the octogenarian president has faced scrutiny from various quarters about age-related concerns.
Regarding his book “The Last Politician,” Foer explained that it sheds light on how many have underestimated Biden and how he’s turned that to his favor. The book also explores Biden’s vast experience in policy-making and his approach to execution.
Foer observed, “It’s evident to anyone that Biden is advancing in years. While I’m no expert on aging, my book emphasizes his meticulous nature. He delves deep into policy details and is an active president, often taking charge of numerous White House affairs.”
