The buzz of the 2020 election has been in the air for some time. Former Vice President Joe Biden is weighing the pros and cons of running against Trump. Now he seems to be getting close to making his final decision.
- Biden realizes that any pursuit of the White House will be tough, saying, “No matter who runs, it’s a very difficult campaign. The primary will be very difficult. And the general election, running against President Trump, I don’t think that he’s likely to stop at anything, whomever he runs against.”
- Biden says he wants to be fully prepared to take on this task. He’ll need to cover and deal with every potential issue before he makes his final decision. He shows remarkably good sense when he says “What I don’t want to do is take people’s time, effort, and commitment without there being a clear shot that I could be the nominee.”
- His main concerns are the support and well-being of his family. Biden chose not to run in the last presidential election due to the unexpected death of his son, but his family is on board with a potential run in 2020. Biden says, “The first hurdle for me was deciding whether or not I am comfortable taking the family through what would be a very, very difficult campaign.”
- Biden will most likely make his decision soon, but he probably won’t publicly announce it before April. Trump is going to give any candidate a run for their money, so Biden is smart to proceed with caution before he makes his final decision.
