The National Archives reported Thursday that at Biden‘s first press conference, reporters asked Biden if he would seek re-election in 2024, to which Biden answered in the affirmative, and when asked if his running mate would be Trump, Biden said, “I don’t know if there will be a Republican by the next presidential election in 2024. “
According to the National Archives, the press corps asked Biden about the clamor to eliminate the filibuster in order to fill the Democratic Party’s legislative agenda and pass a comprehensive election reform package that is so important to Democrats. Biden did not say for sure that he supports ending the filibuster, but he left the door open for the possibility of ending it. The National Archives believes that if the filibuster disappears and the Democrats gain full decision-making control, the Republicans will clearly face an existential crisis.
In another puzzling moment, Biden slipped his tongue and said he came to the U.S. Senate 120 years ago. Biden said, “On the filibuster, I think we should go back 120 years to when I first came to the U.S. Senate, when the filibuster was just emerging.”
