Joe Biden, former vice-president of the United States, has launched his third attempt to win Democratic nomination for President and save the soul of the nation. The 76-year old feels he’s best placed to take on the tweets of 72-year Donald Trump. But he must beat a pack of Democratic that includes Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Cory Booker.
The core values of this nation… our standing in the world… our very democracy…everything that has made America — America –is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States. #Joe2020https://t.co/jzaQbyTEz3

Joe Biden is now the most prominent name to enter the crowded field of Democratic candidates competing to take on Trump in the 2020 election.
He announced his decision to run for president in a video that was heartwarming and touching.
This is Biden’s third run for the presidency, after two unsuccessful attempts at earning the Democratic nomination in 1988 and 2008. Biden bolstered his legacy as Barack Obama’s vice president, with even receiving praise from him for running for President.
If successful, Biden would become the oldest President at 76 years old. The current record holder at the moment is Donald Trump at 72.
