Biden says 2020 White House bid still on the table

Joe Biden

If he chooses to run in 2020, Biden will be 77 on Election Day.

Former Vice President Joe Biden stopped by Today on Monday morning where he once again refused to rule out a 2020 presidential run, reasoning, "I'm not closing the door..." "I'm not taking names, I'm not raising money, I'm not talking to anybody, but something's got to happen".

John Kasich was interviewed alongside Biden for the Snapchat piece.

On to discuss his new book Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and goal, a memoir about his last moments with late son Beau Biden, the former vice president was quizzed about his much-hyped 2020 ambitions.

Biden was referring to his late son Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46.

The former vice president and DE senator said Monday he will concentrate on the book and on helping Democrats win midterm elections next year. Biden is launching a month-long tour to promote the book's publication. One of the more entertaining moments from his appearance, however, came when Barack's BFF took questions from the audience, and one woman asked him to name one thing, if any, he believes our current president Donald Trump is doing well.

Biden, who seriously considered launching a bid to continue the Obama administration legacy in the White House past year, was asked about a potential run in 2020 Tuesday on "Today" but offered little definitive. "And I'd much prefer to be helping someone turn it around than being the guy trying to turn it around". "I don't regret the decision I made because it's the right decision for my family", he said. Kasich ran for the Republican nomination in 2016, losing out to President Trump. "You hold the pen and the Lord will write the sentence", he said.
