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.”

‘Anyone who tried to impact outcome of election should spend life in jail’: Lewandowski
On Tuesday, Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, testified before the House Judiciary Committee. Lewandowski's appearance before Congress was significant because Donald Trump reportedly told him to tell Jeff Sessions to limit the scope of Mueller's Russia probe.
Lewandowski was defiant in his opening statement, slamming the investigation as biased and knocking Hillary Clinton. He also declared that any entity that tried to meddle in a U.S. election should be in prison.
He said that he handled as many as a thousand emails. "And unlike Hillary Clinton, I don't think I ever deleted any of those," Lewandowski said. "Many of them were either responded to with one-word answers or floated to other staff for additional follow-up. But throughout it all, and to the best of my recollection, I don't recall ever having any conversations with foreign entities, let alone any who were operating to manipulate the outcome of an election."
‘Ranting toddler’ Doug Collins gets clobbered online after he turns Lewandowski hearing into a ‘clown show’
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), the ranking Republican member on the House Judiciary Committee, was brutally mocked on Tuesday after he unleashed a bizarre rant during the testimony of former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Collins began his testimony by blasting Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for hauling Lewandowski before the committee.
"Here we go again," Collins complained in an animated opening statement. "We had Mr. Mueller here, and long day, and it did not go well for what you have proclaimed for over one year and nine months, and what you claim is impeachment criteria. And now, the members have said that the president should be impeached, and so why are we investigating?"
American neo-Nazis now see 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden as a role model: report
A new report from Vice claims that white supremacist organizations are increasingly viewing Osama Bin Laden, the late mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, as a role model whose actions can influence the future of their movement.
The report finds that neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division has recently started using Bin Laden's image in its propaganda while also promoting Islamist extremists' willingness to commit mass murder in the name of their religion as something that should be inspiring to American white nationalists.
