US Vice President Joe Biden has stated that if he is in good health at the time, he will run for reelection in 2024.

“Yes,” he said when asked by host David Muir if he plans to run for reelection, in an interview aired Wednesday on ABC’s World News Tonight, reported Xinhua news agency.

“But look, I’m a great respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many, many times. If I’m in the health I’m in now, if I’m in good health, then in fact, I would run again,” he said.

Muir asked Biden if he still wanted to run if his opponent was former President Donald Trump.

“You’re trying to tempt me now,” Biden answered with a laughter. “Sure. Why would I not run against Donald Trump for the nominee? That’ll increase the prospect of running.”
