Multiple sources have confirmed that Joe Biden, former Vice President of the United States, has announced that he is making a run for the White House in 2020.
Biden’s announcement won’t come to many as a shock, as there have been speculations about this move for months now.
However, the former U.S. Senator from Delaware finally made the announcement with an official campaign video in the early hours of April 25.
In his campaign video, Biden framed the forthcoming elections as a “battle for the soul of the country.” He went on to condemn the white supremacist rally that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia back in 2017, as well as the approach taken by the Trump administration in handling the fallout of that event.
On President Trump’s reaction, the former VP remarked, “He said there were quote some very fine people on both sides. With those words, the President of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime.”
Biden’s announcement makes him the latest in a crowed Democrat pool that currently involves over 15 candidates, including Senators Bernie Sanders (Ver.) , Kamala Harris (CA) , and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) , as well as names such as Beto O’Rourke, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and more.
Biden is scheduled to attend a fundraiser in Philadelphia, and his first television interview since making his announcement is scheduled for April 26. On May 18, he’s set to hold a rally in Philadelphia where he will “lay out his vision for unifying America with respected leadership on the world stage.”
