Joe Biden Officially Announces 2020 Presidential Run

Charlottesville officials not commenting on Biden’s possible plans

With his announcement that he is seeking the Democratic nod for president in 2020, Biden is hoping to become the oldest president at the time of inauguration as well as the only Catholic president since John F. Kennedy.

In a tweet accompanied by a three-and-a-half minute video, Biden said giving Trump four more years in power would be extremely risky and 'fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are'.

Biden is "more of a moderate and centrist" who holds appeal for Utahns, Peay said.

As you may remember, Biden served as Barack Obama's vice president for eight years, and the two men were exceptionally close. "That's why today I'm announcing my candidacy for President of the United States".

More recently, Biden has raised progressive eyebrows for praising the wealthy ("just as patriotic as poor folks") and current Vice President Mike Pence("a decent guy").

Biden has been aggressively critical of President Trump.

The 76-year-old former DE lawmaker, a totem of the Democratic Party's establishment, is likely to quickly attract substantial financial support from the party's more moderate wing, as well as the backing of many top Democrats across the country and in Washington, where he worked for decades.

Complicating matters, the last weeks of waiting have been clouded by revelations from multiple women accusing Biden of touching them inappropriately or making them feel uncomfortable with his affection.

"I don't necessarily want another white male ticket", Dismuke said. And Biden is cleaning up in Iowa, where the latest Monmouth University poll shows him winning support of 27 percent of likely caucusgoers.

He ran on his extensive national security experience, gained in part from his chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and his support for a political solution in Iraq. "He's doing his presidential announcement and not even having a rally".

Given his long-standing support from African-Americans and his partnership with Obama, Biden could also affect the candidacy of U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California, who is widely regarded as a serious contender for the nomination.

He voted to weaken longstanding banking regulations, a move that experts say helped trigger the 2008 financial crisis. "So one of the things that really worries me is that it looks like Biden still doesn't get it".

Biden was born in Scranton, a city in northeastern Pennsylvania, in late 1942, when the US was fighting the Axis powers in World War II. His father was a vehicle salesman.

The episode offered a stark reminder of Biden's proclivity to gaffes and his long record in public office that has never felt the full glare of the spotlight that comes along with being a presidential front-runner.

"In my opinion we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now", Sanders said.

Shortly afterward, he lost his wife and baby daughter in a vehicle crash that also left his two young sons, Beau and Hunter, badly injured.

The theme was nearly identical to the one Biden delivered earlier this year during the Munich Security Conference, where he implored anxious members of the European security elite and intelligentsia not to lose faith in the United States. He reportedly seriously considered another run for the White House in 2016, but announced in October 2015 that he would not launch a campaign following the death of his eldest son Beau.
