JOE BIDEN: Please, please sit down. Thank you. Thank you. My predecessor. Oh God, I miss him. No, the answer is yes. My plan is to run for re-election. That's my expectation.

- You also just made some news by saying that you are going to run for re-election.

JOE BIDEN: I said that is my expectation.

- So, is that a yes that you are running for re-election?

JOE BIDEN: Look, I don't know where you guys come from. Man, I've never been able to travel. I'm a great respecter for fate. I've never been about plan four and 1/2, three and 1/2 years ahead for certain.

- And if you do-- if you do run, will Vice President Harris be on your ticket?

JOE BIDEN: I would fully expect that to be the case. She's doing a great job. She's a great partner. She's a great partner.

- And do you believe you'll be running against former President Trump?

JOE BIDEN: Oh, come on. I don't even think about-- I don't-- I have no idea. I have no idea whether there'll be a Republican Party.
