Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday said he could not “think of any reason” why he would not run for president.
During a speech before the International Association of Fire Fighters on Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Trump’s budget and said it is asking the middle class to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires. Biden said, “I was gonna stay away from this, but I can’t. Did you see the budget was just introduced? It cuts $845 billion, almost a trillion dollar cut in Medicare, and almost a quarter trillion, $240 billion cut in Medicaid. Why? Because of a tax cut for the super-wealthy that created a deficit of $1.9 trillion, and now they’ve got to go make somebody pay for it. [They] gave millionaires and billionaires excessive tax breaks, and who are they asking to pay for it? Middle class families like you, the neighborhood I grew up in. Trading Medicare and Medicaid for tax breaks, how that’s going to help anybody in this room, or most of the people you live with? How is that going to help this country?” (h/t Grabien) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) weighed in on former Vice President Joe Biden possibly entering the 2020 presidential race. Emanuel said Biden would be a “tremendous” candidate, but would need to focus on building to the future rather than restoration. “He doesn’t need name ID,” Emanuel advised. “He shouldn’t run too early. He should actually, as he did when he went to NATO, [speak] in a large way about America’s role in the world. He added, “The concern I have for Joe is it looks a little too restoration, and not enough change.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Tuesday on CBS’s “This Morning,” former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), now a CBS political commentator, named former Vice President Joe Biden as a potential 2020 presidential candidate that Republicans should have the most concern. Flake shared that Biden “strikes fear in a lot of Republicans” in a possible matchup with President Donald Trump. “Joe Biden strikes fear in a lot of Republicans,” Flake stated. “He can speak to those states that President Trump won — in the Rust Belt in particular. And he’s seen as more of a centrist. He was a Senator for 30-some years. He knows how to work with the Senate, with the Congress, and I think that’s certainly one that worries Republicans.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Host Joe Kernen asked the Maryland congressman if Biden is a “viable candidate at this point,” to which Hoyer responded the former vice president is a “very viable candidate.” “I think Joe Biden is very viable,” Hoyer told Kernen. “As a matter of fact, I think Joe Biden is ahead in the polls right now. Now, that doesn’t mean a whole lot, in my opinion. But what it does show is Joe Biden has a very broad reach in the Democratic Party. He is very well respected and liked in the Democratic Party. The boy from Scranton as we call him, as he calls himself, he reaches out to middle America, working America, speaks their language. I think he’s a very viable candidate.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
