Upon leaving the Senate floor on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden told media that “I have no intention of running” for president in 2020, according to Washington Post reporter Ed O’Keefe. Biden had previously told a small group of reporters on Monday night that “I am going to run in 2020. For president,” and would not confirm whether he was joking. “I’m not committing not to run. I’m not committed to anything,” he said, when pressed on Monday. “I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.” Biden would be turning 78 in 2020.
