Biden won’t make 2024 announcement until after State of the Union: sources

President Biden will not make an announcement on whether he will run for re-election in 2024 until after he gives the State of the Union address, according to sources.

Sources say that the timing of the announcement isn’t related to an ongoing investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates said that the discovery of classified documents wouldn’t impact Biden’s timing on the decision.

‘The President is honoring his promise to respect the independence of the Department of Justice and divorce it from politics. You’ve heard from him directly, including after his agenda resulted in the best midterms for a Democratic President in 60 years, that he intends to run,’ Bates said.

‘With inflation falling, the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years, more jobs back to America, and lowering drug costs – all  in the last week alone – his focus in on delivering even more progress for American families. This week we also saw House Republicans’ vision: raising taxes on the middle class to cut them for the wealthy, worsening inflation, and a national abortion ban,’ he added.

A Democratic strategist told Fox News that it wouldn’t make sense for Biden to announce plans for 2024 anywhere near, or directly after, the State of the Union. The strategist said that Biden would be better off touting his administration’s accomplishments and let it breathe before launching another major moment.

Biden is facing criticism from Democrats and Republicans after classified documents were found at both his private office at the Penn Biden Center and at his Wilmington, Delaware, residence’s private garage.

In addressing the documents, Biden told Fox News’ Peter Doocy that they were in a locked garage.

‘Classified documents next to your Corvette? What were you thinking?’ Doocy asked Biden.

‘I’m going to get the chance to speak on all of this, God willing it’ll be soon, but I said earlier this week — and by the way my Corvette is in a locked garage. It’s not like it’s sitting out in the street,’ Biden responded.

‘So the documents were in a locked garage?,’ Doocy asked.

‘Yes, as well as my Corvette. But as I said earlier this week, people know I take classified documents and classified material seriously,’ President Biden said. ‘I also said we’re cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review.’
