Joe Biden: 'I am going to run in 2020'


Vice President Joe Biden told reporters Monday that he will run for president in 2020, though he wouldn't make an absolute commitment.

"Yeah, I am. I am going to run in 2020," Biden said, according to NBC News.

When pressed on whether he would run for president, Biden replied, "For president. And also, you know so, what the hell man, anyway."

But Biden stopped short of an absolute commitment when reporters asked him whether he was kidding.

"I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening," he said.

Biden will be 77 in 2020, which would make him the oldest person to be sworn in as president, if he wins.

In October 2015, Biden decided he would not run in 2016 because he was still mourning the recent death of his son Beau, who died of brain cancer.
