U.S. President Joe Biden said he will run for the presidency again, the Irish national radio and television broadcaster RTE reported on Saturday.
Before departing from Ireland at midnight Friday, Biden told reporters that he has made up his mind to run for a second term and will make a formal campaign announcement soon.
Biden arrived in Dublin for a three-day official visit on Wednesday. During his visit, Biden met with his Irish counterpart Michael D. Higgins and held talks with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump, a Republican, who lost to Biden in the 2020 election but has refused to concede, announced his bid in November for presidency in the 2024 election.
