David Axelrod said that he believes former Vice President Joe Biden is running for president in 2020 during an interview with Politico‘s “Off Message” on Tuesday.

Politico‘s Tim Alberta asked Axelrod if he thought Biden would run for president in 2020.

“He sure seems to be headed in that direction,” Axelrod said. “I think he’s genuinely offended by the way Trump’s governing and not governing, the way he’s dividing the country.”

“He knows the job as well as anybody. He really was an important counselor to President Obama,” Axelrod said.

Axelrod then highlighted how Biden had previously run for president twice, adding that it will be hard for him to pass on this opportunity.

“I think he feels he would have won last time, if he had been the nominee. I think there are a lot of things pulling him in that direction,” Axelrod said.

Axelrod admitted that Biden’s age would be an issue but said that if he ran an energized campaign, he could overcome that.

“But right now, I would guess he’s running,” Axelrod concluded.
