Biden Announces Re-Election Bid, Trump Responds

President Biden runs for a second term, emphasising personal freedom and democracy


US President Joe Biden has officially announced his intention to run for a second term in the White House, asking voters to give him four more years to “finish the job”. The 80-year-old revealed his re-election bid in a Twitter post earlier today, accompanied by a video titled “Freedom”.

The video showcased footage from the January 6 riot and Americans protesting against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade. Released on the fourth anniversary of Biden’s initial bid for presidency, the video emphasized the importance of personal freedom and democracy in America.


Biden, who previously made unsuccessful runs for the Oval Office in 1988 and 2008, stated, “Personal freedom is fundamental to who we are as Americans. There’s nothing more important, nothing more sacred. That’s been the work of my first term to fight for our democracy.” He further added that the upcoming years would determine whether Americans have more freedom and rights or less.

In his campaign clip, Biden targeted former President Donald Trump and Republican rival Ron DeSantis, accusing “MAGA extremists” of infringing upon personal liberties and slashing the social safety net. Trump responded to Biden’s announcement, asserting that the current president has inflicted more damage on the nation than any previous administration, and vowed to defeat Biden in the 2024 elections.

Biden joins a short list of current Democratic Party candidates, including Robert F Kennedy Jr and Marianne Williamson. On the Republican side, Trump is joined by Nikki Haley, Asa Hutchinson, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Larry Elder. Recent opinion polls suggest a close race between Biden and Trump, with the latest YouGov survey giving Trump a one-point advantage.

As President Joe Biden announces his re-election bid, both parties gear up for a competitive race in the 2024 US Presidential Elections. Biden’s emphasis on personal freedom and democracy sets the stage for a battle between Democratic and Republican candidates, while former President Trump promises to defeat Biden and “Make America Great Again”.
