Vice President Biden may be just a tad bit upset that he did not run for President. During a recent stop to Good Morning America, the VP said he believes he would have made the perfect President.
To fast forward into the present and America’s future, the 73-year-old stated that he is “confident” presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be our nation’s next president.
According to Biden, he did not run for president because of his son Beau’s cancer. Beau, unfortunately, lost his battle with cancer and passed away in 2015, “No one should ever seek the presidency unless they’re able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that.”
Despite not being able to enter the presidential race, Biden does not regret his decision for one second, “And, Beau was my soul. I just wasn’t ready to be able to do that. But, so, my one regret is my Beau’s not here. I don’t have any other regrets.”
What’s a 2016 presidential talk without a little Trump conversation, not a conversation at all. When asked about Trump, here’s what Biden had to say, “I think that what is gonna happen here is the constant attack coming from the Republican side… I don’t think that’s gonna wear well over the next couple months.”
Despite the political circus that Donald Trump is the ringleader of, Biden is more focused on his Cancer MoonShot 2020 initiative that is designed to improve cancer treatment and and develop vaccine by 2020.
Biden is, of course, doing this with his son in mind, “This allows me to pour all my energies into – doing something that, hopefully will – five years from now if someone’s diagnosed with what my Beau was diagnosed with, they live. There’s so much promise out there.”
