Joe Biden Says He’s The Most Qualified Person In The Country To Be The Next President
Former Vice President Joe Biden is currently considering whether to put his bid in for the 2020 presidential race but he is sure about one thing — he’s the best candidate.
Barack Obama’s former right hand man talked about his upcoming decision during a brief tour promoting the paperback release of his 2017 memoir, “Promise Me, Dad,” according to Nbc news.
“I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that I’ve worked on my whole life — the plight of the middle class and foreign policy,” Biden told an audience in Montana. “But my family and I need to decide as a unit whether we’re ready — we do everything as a family.”
His book details how the passing of his eldest son, Beau, from brain cancer kept him out of the 2016 presidential race.
At the appearance, Biden was asked about factors that may hurt him if he runs — his reputation for gaffes among them.
“I may be a gaffe machine, but my God, what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can’t tell the truth,” he said. “No one doubts what I say, the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean. The question is what kind of nation are we becoming?”
We won’t have to wait too long to find out if Biden will run.
He said his decision would come in the next six weeks to two months.
“I have two young grandchildren my son left who love me and adore me and want me around. I want to be there to take care of them, so we’ve got to figure out whether or not this is something we can all do as a family,” Biden said.
