Third time’s a charm. Vice President Joe Biden confirmed after a senate session at the Washington’s Capitol Monday, (Dec. 5) that he will be running for president in the 2020 election.
“I’m going to run in 2020. So uh, what the hell, man,” Biden announced to reporters. And when the VP was asked if he was serious or not, he politely replied: “Yeah, I am. We’re going to run again.” “I’m not committing not to run. I learned a long time ago fate has a funny way of intervening,” he added.
Biden previously ran for president in 1988 and again in 2008, but dropped out of the running fairly early both times. He also stepped down for a presidential bid in Oct. 2015, endorsing Hillary Clinton instead. If Biden were to win the 2020 election, he would be 78 years of age, making him the oldest person to serve in office, just ahead Ronald Reagan.
Biden’s announcement comes less than one month after Donald Trump was elected as president and although America will have four years of Trump, many voters think there is just a glimmer of hope left to hold on to. So Kanye West, better watch out because Biden may have this one in the bag.
