Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said that U.S. and Russia leaders Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin do not want him to become President of the United States. Biden stated this to the Democratic Party candidates in a televised debate, NBC reports.
According to Biden, he came to that conclusion after the Trump’s impeachment hearings took place in Congress.
"Trump doesn't want me to be a candidate. Vladimir Putin doesn't want me to be a president," the former Vice President said.
He also emphasized that the most important consideration for Democratic voters in the presidential race is to elect a president who can defeat Trump, secure a Democratic majority in the Senate and increase the number of Democrats in the House of Representatives.
