Former Vice President Joe Biden announced Thursday that he will seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, shaking up the wide-open race to defeat President Trump.
“I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an abhorrent moment in time,” Biden said in a video announcing his White House bid. “But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation – who we are – and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”
The article goes on to state the following:
His announcement offered a preview of the core message of his campaign: that Trump’s presidency has left the country in a state of crisis that only an experienced leader like himself can quell.
“Everything that has made America America is at stake,” Biden said. “That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for president of the United States. We have to remember who we are. This is America.”
Biden, 76, began his announcement by recounting the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. and Trump’s remark in its aftermath that there were “some very fine people on both sides,” referring to rally-goers and counter-protesters alike.
“With those words, the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” Biden said. “And in that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I’d ever seen in my lifetime.”
