Recently amid a meeting with famous host Oprah Winfrey, previous Vice President Joe Biden expressed his deep regret for not participating in the race for president in 2016 and stated that he was surely more capable to do the job than previous Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“I have a regret that I am not president because I think there is so much opportunity,” Biden stated to Winfrey. “I would have done a better job than Hillary Clinton and that being said a better job than Donald Trump so far.”
For quite a long time, there was a talk around Biden’s enthusiasm for running for previous President Barack Obama’s role after his term ended, however now he confirmed that the whole thing wasn’t just gossiping – he truly was interested in running for President.
As indicated by ABC News, Biden gave up on the idea only for family reasons even though he considered himself to be the most qualified person for the position.
“No woman or man sould announce they’re running for president unless they can answer two questions,” Biden stated. “One, do they truly believe they’re the most qualified person for that moment? I believed I was.”
Be that as it may, the previous VP stated that he couldn’t decidedly answer whether he was prepared to give 100% of himself in the 2016 race.
Not long after his son Beau passed away, Biden told the nation in 2015 that he wasn’t interested in running anymore.
However, no one knows for sure if what will happen in the next race in 2020, when President Donald Trump will be seeking a second term, the previous VP left a minor possibility that it might happen.
