Three Signs Joe Biden is Running for President in 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden will be 78 on January 20, 2021 – the date of the next Inauguration Day in the United States. He will be eight years older on that day than President Trump, the oldest president to assume office, was on January 20, 2017.

Still, Biden took two major steps toward another presidential run in the last week alone, after months of not ruling a run out.

#1: TALKING ABOUT WHAT WENT WRONG

VP Biden analyzed the 2016 presidential race at an event last week at the University of Pennsylvania. He knocked Hillary Clinton for failling to talk about the middle class during her campaign:

“What happened was that this was the first campaign that I can recall where my party did not talk about what it always stood for — and that was how to maintain a burgeoning middle class,” Biden said during an appearance at the University of Pennsylvania. “You didn’t hear a single solitary sentence in the last campaign about that guy working on the assembly line making $60,000 bucks a year and a wife making $32,000 as a hostess in restaurant.”

#2: HEADLINING AN EARLY-STATE EVENT

Biden is also going back to New Hampshire, which will likely hold the first Democratic primary of 2020. He’s headlining the New Hampshire Democratic Party (NHDP)’s annual fundraising dinner, an event “often associated with presidential ambitions.”

Biden ran in 1988 and 2008, before joining then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)’s ticket in the summer of 2008. He publicly flirted with a challenge to Hillary Clinton in 2015, before passing on a run. Will 2020 be different?

#3: RALLYING FOR OBAMACARE

VP Biden also made a public appearance in D.C., recently, to rally for Obamacare with House and Senate Democrats.

This bill isn’t going to pass,” Biden said of the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Though his prediction was correct, Biden’s defense of Obamacare ignored some of the major flaws with the law.
