Joe Biden Reportedly Says He Has No Intention Of Running In 2020
Is he or isn't he? Just a day after a Senate session in Washington, D.C. in which Vice President Joe Biden told reporters he would be running for President in 2020, CNN reports that Mr. Biden actually will not be campaigning for the position.
"I have no intention of running," the site says that Biden admitted to reporters on Wednesday (Dec. 7) before heading into a reception for an event honoring his service in our nation's Capitol.

Since Monday, Biden has been teasing reporters with the possibility of running for POTUS in 2020. On Monday (Dec. 5), he told reporters, "I've enjoyed every minutes of my time here in the Senate. It's a great feeling to come back. I love this place." Additionally, on Tuesday (Dec. 6), he said "yeah, we're going to run again," after being asked if he would consider throwing his hat into the ring for a third time. He previously ran in 1988 and 2008, but he dropped out early for both runs.
While this confusing back-and-forth has us scratching our noggins, we shouldn't count Ol' Uncle Joe out. He told Stephen Colbert during a recent visit to The Late Show that he's learned to "never say never."
