Former Vice President Joe Biden finally put a stop to the rumor mills and confirmed that it is a definite possibility that he could be running for the 2020 United States presidency. The Associated Press on Sunday reported that he made the declaration during an interview with longtime policy aides.

The former vice president reportedly hosted a meeting with several top aides at his office near Capitol Hill to work on his new diplomacy center.  



Biden, during the meeting, addressed the officials in attendance, including Obama administration's chief of staff and national security adviser; a former State Department official said that Biden has not yet decided about his 2020 presidential run.

However, he told his longtime aides that he would like them joining his presidential campaign if he decides to run for the White House seat.

Reports state that the 75-year-old Democrat is being considered a strong presidential nominee of the party if he finally decides to run. Biden, on several occasions, over the past year has expressed an interest in considering a presidential run for 2020. The former VP, however, has not come to a final decision yet.



Biden had thought about a presidential campaign in 2016, however, he later decided against it after his son Beau Biden's death, according to reports. The presidential race would have pitted him against Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton to clinch the position of the Democratic nominee.

Recent polls have stated that Biden is leading over President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2020 presidential elections match-up. If Biden is indeed elected in 2020, he would be 78 on Inauguration Day, which is a concern for some of the Democrats.

Biden, ever since he left office, has become a more vocal critic of Trump and his administration. Donald Trump's administration has strived to upend all major policies introduced by the Barack Obama administration.

"I want to focus on Beau and my grandkids. We'll see where it goes," he said during an interview with NBC’s Today show. "I'm not closing the door. I've been around too long. I'm a great respecter of fate."

"But who knows what the situation is going to be a year and a half from now? I don't have any idea," he had added.
