Joe Biden has made it official. After an awkward lead up, Biden has finally entered the 2020 race.
Watch the video:
President Trump welcomed Biden to the race, and wished him well against his nasty Democrat cohorts.
Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!

Other Trump supporters weighed in on “Creepy” Uncle Joe tossing his political hat back in the ring.
Joe Biden has no business running for president again.
Just ask President Obama, who’s chosen *not* to endorse his right-hand man.
Biden has been losing presidential bids for decades – 2020 won’t be any different.

If Joe Biden wants to keep score:
In 8 years, Biden & Obama had a net loss of 193,000 manufacturing jobs.
In just over 2 years, @realDonaldTrump has created 453,000 manufacturing jobs.
Don’t let Biden take us backwards!

Many Democrats are against Sleepy Uncle Joe.

With that said, I believe Joe Biden is the most conservative & problematic candidate now officially in the race.
In the 70s he fought against integration.
In the 80s & 90s he fought harder for mass incarceration than any single Democrat.
In the 2000s he voted for the Iraq War.

I like Joe Biden in a "Please excuse him, he's my uncle, he means well but doesn't know any better and still thinks that it's 1973" kinda way, not in a "Make this man the leader of the country" kinda way.

Intriguing angle taken by Biden in his launch video.
Zero reminder of his experience (longevity), but instead contemporizes his candidacy by framing it around Charlottesville as the defining issue of Trump's presidency and Biden's reason for running.https://t.co/2hycnL94Gx

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. announced Thursday that he would seek the Democratic nomination to challenge President Trump in 2020, marshaling his experience and global stature in a bid to lead a party increasingly defined by a younger generation that might be skeptical of his age and ideological moderation.
Mr. Biden, 76, is set to offer himself as a levelheaded leader for a country wracked by political conflict, a rationale he believes could attract a broad cross-section of voters who want to move on from Mr. Trump.
In a three-and-a-half minute video laying out his reasons for running, Mr. Biden chose not to talk about policy issues or his biography but instead began by recalling the white supremacist march through Charlottesville, Va., in 2017 and a counterprotest, and Mr. Trump’s comment that there were “very fine people on both sides.” In that moment, Mr. Biden said, “I knew the threat to our nation was unlike any I’d ever seen in my lifetime.”
“We are in the battle for the soul of this nation,” Mr. Biden said. “I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time. But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are, and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”
Mr. Trump, in a Twitter post about Mr. Biden on Thursday morning, did not respond to those remarks, but instead lampooned the former vice president as “Sleepy Joe” and derided the Democratic field.
“I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign,” he wrote. “It will be nasty — you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas.”
