Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said that if he wins the election, he is ready to serve two terms as head of state. He said this in an interview with ABC News, RIA Novosti reports. I think it’s a reasonable question to ask anyone over the age of 70 whether they’re healthy and willing, that’s a valid question, but I can only say to Americans, you’ll see,” he said, adding that he’s “certainly open” to running for a second term and serving as president for eight years.
Earlier, the American edition of the Washington Examiner reported that Biden’s words at the conclusion of the speech during the Democratic convention almost completely repeat the phrase of the famous Canadian politician Jack Layton. Concluding the speech, Biden said, “Love is stronger than hate. Hope is stronger than fear. Light is stronger than darkness.” Layton wrote similar words in 2011.
During his speech, Biden also agreed to run for president of the United States as the Democratic nominee.
The U.S. presidential election is scheduled for November 3.
