Race For US Presidency: Biden Says He Is 'Running Because Democracy Is At Stake'

American President, Joe Biden, said he was running for re-election because Donald Trump wanted to destroy US Democracy.

Addressing a fundraising event in New York, Biden said, his experience helped him deal with crises like Ukraine and covid-19.

He said, I’m running because democracy is at stake, because in 2024 Democracy is on the ballot once again. And let there be no question. Donald Trump and his Maga Republicans are determined to destroy American Democracy.

Opinion polls show American voters have concerns about Biden’s age ahead of a likely rematch next year against Trump, whom he beat in 2020.

Biden would be 86 at the end of a second term and his Republican opponents relentlessly target the issue.
