While talking to reporters in St. Croix, President Biden hinted he was going to run for president again by making a sarcastic comment when asked about his intentions.
Biden commented that he wasn’t aware of an upcoming election, saying, “There’s an election coming up, I didn’t know that.”
While Biden jokes, people around him are saying he will be running again.
Previously, Biden said his intention was to run for reelection during an interview on MSNBC.

Another presidential run isn’t certain but all indications point that way.
Biden has not yet fully committed to another term, according to three people with knowledge of the deliberations… but those in the president’s circle believe there’s a growing likelihood that he will run again & an announcement could come as soon as Feb: https://t.co/D0McKVMyTh

Biden’s apparent intentions conflict with a recent poll that reported 70 percent didn’t want him to run again.
It’s likely Biden and his wife want another four years in the White House but it’s quite possible the Democrat political machine will undermine this effort.
