On Monday, December 5, just 27 days after Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, the Vice President, 74, told reporters after a senate session in the Capitol: “I’m gong to run in 2020.”
When asked what position he planned to make a bid for, he revealed: “For president. So uh, what the hell, man.”
Biden was asked by CNN if he was serious, and he said: “Yeah, I am. We’re going to run again.”
Biden ran for president, but dropped out early both times, in 1988 and again in 2008. He bowed out in October 2015 for a presidential bid and endorsed Hillary Clinton instead.
He will be 78 years old shortly after the 2020 election. Ronald Reagan was just shy of his 78th birthday when he left the office in 1989, making him the oldest person to serve as president.
