WASHINGTON (Worthy News) – Americans are waking up Tuesday with news that U.S. President Joe Biden is launching his re-election campaign despite worries about his age and style.
Biden, already America’s oldest president and who would be 86 at the end of a second term, told Americans early Tuesday, “Let’s finish this job.”
He said in a video that the United States remains in a “battle for the soul of America,” doubling down on the central message of his campaign four years ago.
He stressed the question facing the nation is “whether, in the years ahead, we have more freedom or less freedom, more rights or fewer.”
In a three-minute video, the Democratic leader added, “This is not a time to be complacent.”
He said, “That’s why I’m running for reelection. Because I know America. I know we’re good and decent people. I know we’re still a country that believes in honesty and respect and treating each other with dignity.”
Commentators said Biden lacks a formidable Democratic challenger for the party’s nomination.
Former President Donald J. Trump has secured frontrunner status in the Republican presidential primary.
Although Biden did not mention Trump by name, the video includes images of the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol and an indirect reference to Trump’s hold on the Republican Party.
