Joe Biden says he will run for 2020 presidential election

In this image from video from Senate Television Vice President Joe Biden presides over the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington Monday Dec. 5 2016. A bipartisan bill to speed government drug approvals and bolster biomedical research cleared its

Biden ultimately endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Mr Biden was emotional after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a colleague and a friend, got the Senate to name a portion of the measure after Mr Biden's son, Beau, who died of cancer a year ago.

As a gesture to Biden, their former Senate colleague, Senate leaders dedicated the provision to Beau.

"Yeah I am", Biden responded. Biden will literally get a malarkey button to push every time Trump spews B.S.

"I think it's fitting to dedicate this bill's critical cancer initiatives in honor of someone who would be proud of the presiding officer today and that's his son Beau", the Kentucky Republican said. The reporter who asked the question most likely meant for the Senate, but Biden appeared to take the dialogue to a whole different level.

The vice president decided against a presidential run this cycle after a long decision-making process following the death of his son, Beau.

When asked to clarify, Delaware's elder statesman said, "For president...what the hell, man?"

Along with First Lady Michelle Obama and others who were seemingly uninterested in a future White House bid, Biden has shot down any rumors of a presidential run in the past. I am not committing to anything.

"I learned a long time ago, fate has a odd way of intervening", he added. He opted not to run a year ago - after seeming to test the waters for a brief period - and backed Hillary Clinton's campaign. "Yeah, I am. We're going to run again".

Vice President Joe Biden announced that he's planning to run for the highest position in the state in four years, but he's "not committed to anything".

We all know that there is a possibility of Trump running for a second time, but Biden has a tremondous amount of support and the experience to take this country in the direction it needs to go.

Biden was on Capitol Hill to make a rare Senate appearance, where he presided over a vote that ended debate on legislation known as the Cures Act.

If Biden did decide to run, he would be 77 years old on Election Day in 2020.

Biden mounted his own presidential campaign in 2008 before being tapped as the running mate for then-Senator Barack Obama.
