On Saturday (November 26), while out shopping in Nantucket, Mass. President Joe Biden declared he wouldn’t be entertaining any questions about his potential 2024 bid.

While honoring Small Business Saturday, the shopping event following Black Friday, Biden was approached by reporters asking questions about his 2024 ambition. Rather than answer the question, Biden explained he wouldn’t be having any conversations about the possibility, simply saying, “we’re celebrating.”

For months, Biden and his aides have fielded questions about the President running again in 2024. Each time the question is broached, the indication is Biden will run again.

The 80-year-old President is yet to make his intentions official.
More recently, Biden noted he would be deciding on a 2024 bid with his family over the holiday season.

But Biden’s avoiding the subject on Saturday coincides with a visit the President and his family made to Nantucket.

Biden was accompanied on his shopping excursion by First Lady, Jill Biden, his son Hunter Biden, his wife Melissa Cohen, and his 2-year-old son, Beau Biden.

Ashley Biden, the First Couple’s daughter, also participated in the day’s shopping.

Questions surrounding Biden’s 2024 bid have only intensified with the news that former President Donald Trump announced his own Presidential bid.

While Biden remains coy about his intentions, for Republicans’ the race to become the party’s 2024 Presidential nominee is heating up and reporters want Biden’s comments on the events.

Asked about a dinner Trump had with Ye, formerly Kanye West, and white nationalist Nick Fuentes, Biden noted that reporters didn’t “want to hear what I think.”
