First Lady Jill Biden is saying that she is "all in" for President Joe Biden moving forward with a 2024 reelection run.
The move comes as the president said he would make an announcement regarding reelection after the holidays.

"Jill was said to be against the idea of her husband making a bid for a second term just three months ago, and is said to be 'exhausted' by her public schedule," the Daily Mail reported.
"However, sources have now said that she has come around to the idea of the president running for re-election, bringing her private conversations in-line with her public level of enthusiastic support for her husband," it added.

Biden has been under some pressure by Democrats to step down after one term. At 80 years old, he is already the oldest serving president.
If he runs for another term and wins, he could be in office until age 86.
The president has also faced scrutiny from many conservatives over his ongoing gaffes that have led to questions over his "cognitive ability" to lead the nation.
The gaffes and weaknesses of Biden's administration, including the economy, border crisis and failed departure from Afghanistan, have also contributed to a desire for a new Democratic candidate for the next presidential election.
Biden has increasingly signaled that he will run again, despite the concerns. His recent push to make South Carolina the first Democratic primary state shows he's looking for an advantage in his run for a second term.
Many Americans may want him to step down after one term, but signs are pointing to a second run that could pit him once again against former President Donald Trump.
