President Joe Biden made a stunning announcement at his first press conference after 64 days in office: He wants to run for re-election in 2024. WATCH:

“Have you decided whether you are going to run for re-election in 2024?” Nancy Cordes of CBS News asked. “You haven’t set up an election campaign yet as your predecessor had by this time.”

“My predecessor,” Biden said with an awkward laugh. “Needed to. My predecessor. Oh God, I miss him.”

It was not clear why Biden thought there was something funny about Donald Trump planning to run for re-election.

“The answer is yes,” he then said abruptly. “My plan is to run for re-election. That’s my expectation.”

Biden’s announcement was met with widespread amazement on Twitter.
