Joe Biden Talks Potentially Running for President in 2020: “I'm not closing the door” - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our beloved former vice president JoeBiden sat down with Oprah and TheTodayShow to discuss his new memoir, “Promise Me Dad," as well as his thoughts on running for president in 2020. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Not yet,” Biden said during his “SuperSoul Sunday” interview with Oprah. “Look, I’m a great respecter of fate. I don’t plan on running.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hopes run high for the day Biden announces he’ll take a shot at leading our country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Here’s my problem: You know, I learned how to become one of the most popular elected officials in the United States. Announce you’re not running for president – it’s amazing! Boom, you know, it really gets good,” Biden chuckles. “But I’m asked to speak a lot in political fore, and I’m doing it not nearly as often as I’m asked because every time I’m asked, they translate it into, ‘I’m running for president.’” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, during his interview with Today Monday he said he isn’t exactly ruling the idea out totally. "I honest to God haven't made up my mind about that,'' Biden told Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer. "I'm not closing the door. I've been around too long." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of right now, the 74-year-old said he’d like to focus on his family and book, which details his journey with his son, who battled brain cancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He continued: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I can tell you honestly, if the Lord Almighty came down and sat in the middle of the table and said, 'Joe, the nomination is yours but you have to take it now, I would say no,''' he said.
