  • President Joe Biden said he has "no idea if there will be a Republican Party" to run against in 2024.

  • The president wouldn't promise that he'll run for reelection in 2024, but said he expects to do so.

  • "I've become a great respecter of fate in my life," he said. "I've never been able to plan ... three and a half years ahead, for certain."

President Joe Biden scoffed when asked during a press conference on Thursday whether he expects to run for reelection against former President Donald Trump in 2024. He suggested the GOP might not even exist in three years.

"Oh, come on. I don't even think about - I have no idea," Biden said when asked whether he'll be facing off against Trump. "I have no idea if there will be a Republican Party. Do you?"

Biden wouldn't promise that he'll run for reelection in 2024, but said it's his "expectation" that he will do so and that Vice President Kamala Harris will be on his ticket, calling Harris "a great partner."

"I've become a great respecter of fate in my life," he said during the first formal press conference of his presidency. "I've never been able to plan ... three and a half years ahead, for certain."
