Home / US / Joe Biden: “I’m the most qualified person in the country as president”
WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that his decision on the 2008 presidential election will rest if he and his family are “ready”, even though he claims his strengths as a potential candidate that is much greater than any perceived debt .
Bids comments came during a short tour that promotes the paperback edition of his 2017 memo, describing his eldest son’s battle with brain cancer and how his death prevented him from the 2016 presidential election.
“I think I” I am the most qualified person in the country as president. The problems that we face as a country today are the issues I’ve worked with throughout my life – Citizenship and Foreign Policy, “Biden told an audience in Montana, according to Missoula Current.” But my family and I have to decide as one IMAGES

PORTLAND, MIG – 31 JANUARY: Former Vice President Joe Biden, right, associated with former Senator George Mitchell, left, talks Wednesday, January 31, 2018 in Portland, Maine as during an event as part of a national one book tour for Biden.
Biden was asked about factors that could hurt him if he was driving his reputation as a “forklift” among them
“I can be a forklift but my God, what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can not tell the truth, “he said. “No one doubts what I’m saying, the problem is that I sometimes say everything I mean. The question is which nation we become?”
Biden said his decision would come in the next six weeks to two months, according to a CNN report, in line with the timeline he offered when discussing his plans on the election day.
“I have two young grandchildren, my son, who loves me and loves me and wants me around. I want to be there to take care of them so we need to find out if this is something we can anyone do as a family, he says.
Biden has postponed a second stop on the letter scheduled in the Dallas area Tuesday so he can attend memorials in Washington for former president George HW Bush.
