Ron Klain, who will be stepping down as Joe Biden's chief of staff, said he would support the former vice president if he decides to run for president in 2024.
Although Biden is expected to make an official announcement regarding his 2020 presidential campaign in the next couple of weeks, he has not yet revealed his plans.
During his farewell ceremony at the White House, Klain praised Biden's two years in office and said that his aides exceeded his expectations.
He also praised Biden's team, saying that they were able to overcome the negativity that was written about them during the winter of 2019.
Biden's current chief of staff noted that a decision regarding his future plans could be coming soon. He expressed his confidence in the former vice president and said that he would be supporting him in 2024.
Jeff Zients, who is an adviser to Biden, will take over as his chief of staff following the State of the Union speech next week.
The change in the leadership team of the White House comes at a time of tension for Biden. He is currently under investigation regarding his mishandling of classified information.
This is Biden's first time facing a divided Congress in his term, which will have a significant impact on how the White House handles its legislative goals. The House Republicans are also investigating the Justice Department's handling of the case.
