There's been a lot of debate on whether or not President Biden will run for re-election in 2024. A report has now surfaced that Biden told Al Sharpton exactly what he plans to do in 2024.
According to the report from NBC:
“I’m going to do it again,” Biden said as he posed for a photograph in the Roosevelt Room with Sharpton, who is also an MSNBC host, according to an official of Sharpton’s National Action Network who recounted Sharpton’s description. “I’m going.”

This may seem random but Sharpton was actually one of the first people to know about Biden's 2020 run. More from NBC:
During a group conversation, Sharpton reminded Biden that the two had sat down in January 2019 on the sidelines of an event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. At the time, Biden had not yet declared his candidacy and was seeking Sharpton’s endorsement — or at least a pledge of neutrality — in a field that would include now-Vice President Kamala Harris and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., both of whom are Black.
Then, Biden solicited Sharpton’s advice on running in 2020, avoiding a definitive declaration that he would contend. But, as Sharpton recounted for the group at the White House, that conversation nearly four years ago convinced him he was among the first to know that Biden would ultimately run.
President Biden will be 82 years old in 2024. The closer that comes, the more people will question his cognitive decline.
It seems unfathomable that President Biden will be leading this country in 2028 near the end of the decade. At that point, he will be beyond 85 years old.
According to polls, Donald Trump is the frontrunner for the Republican nominee. Back in December Biden said if Trump were to run it would “increase the prospect” of him running for reelection.

Says Trump running would make him more likely to run again.
