On Monday, Vice President Joe Biden hinted that he might run for the presidential election in 2020. After presiding over the Senate session, Biden talked about a delightful career that he had while working in the chamber.

When a CNN reporter asked him whether he would run for office again, Biden said with a slight smile, "Yeah, I am. I'm going to run in 2020." The reporter also asked about the position he would like to run for, to which Biden responded, “For president. What the hell, man.”

Biden’s response to the reporter has initiated speculations about the 2020 presidential election. He further said, “I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committing to anything. I learned a long time ago fate has a strange way of intervening.”

Biden was considered to be a suitable candidate in the 2016 presidential election. However, he refused to run for the election as his family was suffering from the grief of losing their eldest son, Beau, from cancer. In the 2016 presidential election, Biden chose to promote Hillary Clinton.

This popular vice president represented Delaware since 1973 and has been reelected six times. He developed a close relationship with President Barack Obama. In the years 1988 and 2008, he ran for the post of president but with no favourable results.

Joe Biden is considered to be one of the most popular vice presidents in the history of America.
