Joe Biden Reveals His Plans to Run for President for the Third Time in the 2020 Election

On Monday, December 5, just 27 days after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, the vice president, 74, told reporters after a senate session in the Capitol: “I’m gong to run in 2020.”

Although when pressed further he backpedalled a little, confessing: “I’m not committing not to run. I learned a long time ago fate has a funny way of intervening.”

Biden ran for president but dropped out early both times, in 1988 and again in 2008. He bowed out in October 2015 for a presidential bid and endorsed Hillary Clinton instead.

He will be 78 years old shortly after the 2020 election. Ronald Reagan was just shy of his 78th birthday when he left the office in 1989, making him the oldest person to serve as president.
