According to a new report from Politico, ex-President Obama expressed serious doubts about Biden’s viability as a Presidential candidate.
Obama even went so far as saying he “doesn’t have it,” according to the report.
The New York Times previously reports that former President Barack Obama cautioned former Vice President Joe Biden against running in the 2020 presidential election, saying, “you don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.”
NYPost reports former President Barack Obama apparently doesn’t have high hopes for how Joe Biden will fare in the presidential election, telling another Democratic candidate his two-term veep “doesn’t have it,” according to a report.
Obama has been meeting with potential 2020 Democratic hopefuls in his Washington, DC, office to offer them advice and weigh their commitment to running in a primary election and then having a plan to move on to the grueling general election, Politico reported Tuesday.
During one sit-down with a Democratic candidate, according to the report, Obama spoke about his former running mate.
“He pointed out that during his own 2008 campaign, he had an intimate bond with the electorate, especially in Iowa, that he no longer has. Then he added, ‘And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden,’” the report said.
