Vice President Joe Biden refused to rule out a presidential run in 2020 in an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Tuesday night. Biden, who would be 78 years-old if inaugurated in 2021, responded to Colbert’s questions about a possible run with, “Never say never.”
Colbert questioned Biden about comments he made to a reporter Monday in which he said that he would run for president in 2020. Biden remarked at the time, “What the hell, man?”
“I don’t plan on running again, but to say you know what’s going to happen in four years, I just think is not rational,” Biden said to Colbert, who joked that Biden’s answer was “the sound of a door creaking open.”
Speculating out loud about a possible run against Trump, Biden joked, “Donald Trump’s going to be 74, I’ll be 77, and in better shape.”
This isn’t the first time Biden has discussed Trump in physical terms, saying in October, “I wish we were in high school and I could take [Trump] behind the gym.”
Presidential run or not, Biden vowed to “stay deeply, deeply involved” in American politics before adding that the American people should give Donald Trump “a clear shot to do the job.”
