White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre indicated Tuesday that she is not sure whether or not President Joe Biden will serve a full two-term stint in the Oval Office if he wins re-election in 2024.
“Does the President plan to serve all eight years?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre during a press conference that kicked off shortly after Biden’s 2024 announcement video was launched this morning.
After laughing at the question off the bat, Jean-Pierre responded by saying that she would not be committing to anything on the matter.
“I’m not, I’m just not gonna get ahead of the president, that’s something for him to decide,” the press secretary said. “There’s a 2024 campaign, anything related to that, I would refer you to that.”

Earlier on in the conference, Jean-Pierre sounded very much out of the loop on Biden’s 2024 campaign, and she also wildly claimed that Republicans are responsible for the border crisis by “defunding border patrol.”

She then bizarrely suggested that “unlawful immigration is down,” despite all of the latest statistics showing a record amount of illegal border crossings on America’s Southern border.
