Joe Biden has been a busy man lately. Ever since he left the White House, Biden has been traveling across the US supporting the Democratic Party. There are many rumors that he is positioning himself to run for president in 2020. However, his focus now is the 2018-midterm elections. On Saturday, Biden gave a speech to Florida Democrats, endorsing Senator Bill Nelson.
Biden spoke about the thought that the Democratic Party is disconnected from middle-class Americans.
“We can’t get bogged down- and I hope I don’t offend anyone here-in this phony debate in the Democratic Party. There is no need to choose. They are not inconsistent. They voted for a black man named Barack Obama! We didn’t talk much to those people lately. We have to let them know we understand their fears, their concerns and that we have some real answers,” Biden said.
Biden then took a shot at the Trump administration, while not mentioning them by name.
“The state the nation is today will not be sustained by the American people. We are better than this,” Biden said.
According to the Miami Herald, “[Biden] discussed making community college free and narrowing the wage gap-the sort of issues that make up Democratic presidential platforms.”
In 2020, Joe Biden will be 77. If Biden decides to run for president in 2020, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which he loses. However, his main focus is 2018, where Democrats are expected to have a huge year.
