Former Vice President Joe Biden is ready to throw his hat into the 2020 president race — but only if President Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, according to a report.
Fox Business correspondent Charles Gasparino reported on Thursday that Biden had told friends on Wall Street that he was preparing for a presidential bid. But according to the sources, Biden will only enter the race if President Donald Trump runs as the GOP pick.
“He’s going to his Wall Street friends/associates, he has a lot of connections there — people that would raise money for him — and saying, ‘Listen, I am seriously considering running for president, but only if one candidate runs,” Gasparino told Fox Business host Neil Cavuto.
Gasparino noted that Biden will be nearly 78 in 2020. Trump will be 74 when the next election occurs.
“He said the age difference between he and Trump is not that great, age won’t be an issue,” the Fox Business reporter explained. “He is actually saying this. He’s going around to Wall Street guys. And by the way, Wall Street guys always liked Biden.”

‘Pence would be president by noon’: Morning Joe claims GOPers would dump Trump in a minute in a secret impeachment vote
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough believes the Senate would convict President Donald Trump by an overwhelming margin today if the vote were held in secret.
Former Sen. Jeff Flake said late last month that "at least 35" Republicans would vote to impeach Trump if the vote were secret, but the "Morning Joe" host and analyst Mike Barnicle agreed that number is much higher as public support grows for removing the president.
"I find it very interesting, very interesting that senators are being a little more careful in not attacking Mitt Romney," Scarborough said, referring to the Utah Republican who's been increasingly critical of the president. "Senators aren't rushing to Donald Trump's side. They don't know, for the first time, how this is going to play out. They're not so sure, for the first time, that Donald Trump can shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and get away with it."
Trump says ‘phase 1’ China trade pact on track for November
US President Donald Trump on Monday said progress in developing the text of a partial trade pact with China means he will likely be able to sign it next month.
Trump remains upbeat on the chances Beijing and Washington will seal the mini-deal he announced earlier this month -- marking a cooling-off period in the two nations' damaging trade war.
"We'll be able to, we think, sign a completed document with China on phase one," Trump said at the White House.
US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said efforts to commit the agreement to paper before the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Chile next month are "on track" though some work remains to be done.
Teacher at taxpayer-funded private Christian school forced out for being gay
A private Christian school in Florida that receives taxpayer funding for school vouchers has forced out one of its teachers, she says, because she is gay.
Monica Toro Lisciandro says Covenant Christian School in Palm Bay, Florida not only parted ways with her after she acknowledged she is gay when school administrators asked her, but her students were told her "morals" did not line up with the schools, Lisciandro says.
The school questioned Lisciandro, who teaches theater, after someone called to report saying they had seen her at a pride event.
"Lisciandro said the assistant principal told her the school received word that Lisciandro was in a relationship with a woman, she had attended a pride festival, and she hosted an LGBTQ group in her studio," Florida Today reports.
