Joe Biden, a former US vice president, on Saturday strongly denied he wanted to run for the Democratic Party, to challenge Trump in next year’s election.
In his speech to the Democrats in his native Delaware state, Biden said his record was the most progressive, “for anyone running in the US elections,” before correcting himself, saying “to anyone who will run.”
The crowd chanted, “Run, Joe, run,” while Biden said, “I did not mean that.”
