President Joe Biden announced that he and Vice President Kamala Harris are running for reelection in 2024 in a campaign video.

He said in the launch video that he is "in a battle for the soul of America" as "MAGA extremists are lining up" to take away Americans' basic freedoms, referring to supporters of former President Donald Trump. The video also featured footage from the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

Biden, 80, is the oldest president in U.S. history. If reelected, he would be 86 by the end of his second term.

His average approval rating is below most other modern presidents by this point in their presidencies, according to poll analysis outlet FiveThirtyEight.

The next presidential election could be a rematch between Biden and Trump, as the former president is running for the Republican nomination again.
