I mean, I just think there's an attack on the system.

"To not have an outright, flat condemnation of that... But I thought I could have won". The former vp stated that the events in Charlottesville triggered him to speak out against Trump and condemn the alt-right.

During his appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday, the former veep was asked what sort of legacy he thinks Trump's presidency will leave behind, and he responded with a firm denunciation.

"I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very hard primary, I think I could have won", he said in March. "And I think people are anxious". "It goes beyond President Trump, in my view".

Hillary Clinton was unable to get her message out in 2016, Biden said, adding that he does not know if he would have beaten Donald Trump in the general election. "We'd have a good president". We finally are recognizing the long-term impacts on the health of women and men who've been abused.

Biden, who is promoting a book he wrote about his first-born son that died of brain cancer in 2015, told the NBC television network that he has not decided on a possible nomination for the 2020 presidential elections.

"I want to focus on Beau and my grandkids".

He went on, "I had a lot of data and I was fairly confident that if I were the Democratic Party's nominee, I had a better-than-ever chance of being president ..."
