Former US VP Joe Biden announces 2020 presidential run

Former US VP Joe Biden announces 2020 presidential run

Already differentiating himself from the other 17 candidates running, Biden also immediately released Spanish-language advertising to target Latino supporters.

But critics dismiss Biden, who is four years older than Trump, as too old and out of step to carry the flag for an increasingly diverse Democratic Party. "It's time for a president who will stand up for all of us".

There may be some backstory that will come out later, but what it looks like now is that Biden made a decision to try to make peace with Hill before running for president and failed, and then his campaign had to scramble when Hill gave an interview exposing his rejected half-apology on the eve of his announcement. Gutmann also maintained that the Penn Biden Center would still be "an integral component" of Penn's work.

This will mark Biden's third attempt for the White House after two failed bids in 1988 and 2008.

Biden's announcement comes in the wake of allegations he has made women feel uncomfortable in their encounters.

He ultimately apologised and said he recognised standards for personal conduct had evolved in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Joe Biden could be the next Jeb Bush, crashing and burning early and leaving a lot of money on the table. He ran 20 years later in 2008, only to drop out and later become then-candidate Barack Obama's running mate.

On Thursday, a reporter asked Biden why Obama had yet to endorsed him for president, to which the former VP replied, "I asked President Obama not to endorse, and he doesn't want to". "Whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits", Biden said. "It was there on August of 2017 we saw Klansman, and white supremacists and neo-Nazis come out in the open, their crazed faces illuminated by torches, veins bulging, and baring the fangs of racism", the candidate claimed.

In a tweet accompanied by a three-and-a-half minute video, Biden said giving Trump four more years in power would be extremely unsafe and 'fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are'.

There was no moral equivalence between racists and those fighting such inequality, he said.

"I've always tried to make a human connection.I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, 'You can do this, ' and whether they're women, men, young, old, it's just the way I've been", he said.

Several strategists see Biden as the down-to-earth Democrat with star power who connects with working class voters such as those who abandoned Hillary Clinton for Trump three years ago. He is the only candidate in the field who voted in support of the Iraq War in 2002. "The actual record of Joe Biden - what he's done, where he's invested his time and heart, the issues he's tackled - he is exactly in the right place for our country", Coons told CNN. And while several 2020 Democratic contenders have embraced the possibility of reparations to African Americans for slavery in recent weeks, Biden last month struggled to explain comments he made as a freshman senator in 1975 about the school busing debate.

But Ms. Hill, in an interview Wednesday, said she left the conversation feeling deeply unsatisfied and declined to characterize his words to her as an apology.

He also has been censured over his ties to the financial industry and for his authorship of a 1994 crime act that led to increased incarceration rates. Elizabeth Warren, New York Sen.
