Biden Says He'll Be in Office 'the Next 5 Years' During International Meeting

President Joe Biden said that he'll be in office for the next five years while participating in an international meeting in Europe on Tuesday.

Biden shared the words with Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan while at the NATO Vilnius summit.

"I look forward to meeting with you the next five years," Biden said.

"Mr. President, it's good to see you again," Biden told Erdoğan. "It’s a delight to be with you, and, you know, we're in this historic meeting, resolving a lot of things, I hope. And we made it all the more historic by the agreement you reached yesterday in the admission of Sweden and how you're going to proceed."

"Earlier, Turkey had some issues with Sweden joining NATO. But they decided to drop these issues, which let Sweden become the 32nd official member of NATO. Sweden had already done everything needed to join but was waiting for all members to agree," the Politics Brief shared.

"Biden said he was happy to see President Erdoğan again and said their meeting was special. He added, 'Thank you for your diplomacy and courage, and how you took that on. And I want to thank you for your leadership. Mr. President, this summit is re-affirming our commitment to NATO, and the NATO defense and allies in NATO and I hope we can make it even stronger.'"

The comments came across to many as concerning as Biden faces reelection next year. He would only be in office five more years if he wins against former President Donald Trump or another GOP challenger in 2024.

The gaffe by Biden could also fuel even more speculation about election integrity following fierce debates on voting issues following the 2020 presidential election.

Republicans will likely use the words against Biden in upcoming talking points, seeking to show he is assuming too much and is unfit to remain in office for a second term.

The election rhetoric is already heating up, with debates starting next month for Republicans on the road to 2024.
