Donald Trump is already p*ssed off enough over the fact that he can’t get America to forget about his predecessor, Barack Obama, as the former POTUS consistently outshines him.
Trump is about to become even more irate when he discovers that Obama’s right hand man, former Vice President Joe Biden, is coming for him in 2020.
That’s right – Joe Biden is running for President. MSNBC’s Donny Deutsche made every American’s week when he announced on Morning Joe that a source close to Biden said that if the 74-year-old former VP is healthy in 2020, he will definitely run against Trump. Deutsche said:
I spoke to someone close to Biden, [who] said if he’s healthy, he’s going for it in 2020.”
And apparently, it’s personal. Really personal. Biden is pretty much going to run just so he can beat Trump! Politico reported:
Joe Biden thinks it’s critical that Donald Trump not get a second term — and though it’s early, he doesn’t yet see anyone else who could stop that from happening. So, he’s been telling people privately, that might mean he’ll just have to run himself.”
Biden has been teasing Americans with a presidential race for quite some time, and he even almost jumped into the race during the last election. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Biden later said that he regretted not running. It seems like he’s going to make up for it now.
You can watch the report below:
There’s a pretty good chance Biden will be running in the next election – he even joked about being healthier than Trump in an interview last year when he teased a 2020 presidential run on Stephen Colbert’s show. Biden said:
You don’t know what’s going to happen. I mean hell, Donald Trump’s gonna be 74. I’ll be 77 and in better shape. I mean, what the hell?”
Trump can pretty much kiss the White House goodbye.
