Former Vice President sounds off during MSNBC interview
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” that it was “pretty clear” President Donald Trump does not want to run against him in the election.
Former Vice President Biden claimed he was the “the last guy Trump wants to run against.”
The ex-VP also claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin also does not want him to win the Democratic nomination.
“[T]he last couple days in Nevada, [Trump has] spent, I’m told, $135,000,” Joe Biden said.
“The last guy Trump wants to run against is me — and it’s been pretty clear.,” he added.
“And all this stuff about whether Russians are interfering in the election — the only thing we know for sure is that Vladimir Putin doesn’t want me to be the nominee. No, I’m serious.”
“You think he wants Bernie Sanders?” Hunt asked Biden.
“I don’t know that he wants Bernie Sanders, but I know he doesn’t want me because he knows I know him, and he knows me,” Biden replied.
” It’s real simple.”
Earlier this month, Biden declared he “will beat” President Trump in November’s election.

“Trump “is obsessed with me, and he should be, with good reason,” Biden stated during the interview on “CNN Tonight.”
“Look, he’s deathly afraid to face me. Have you ever — you can’t answer it I know, but rhetorical question, have you ever seen a sitting president spend as much time, money, and effort, including risking being impeached and thrown out of office to decide to eliminate one of his potential opponents in a primary — I mean, that are running in a primary for the general election?” he said.
“This guy is obsessed with me, and he should be, with good reason.”
“Because I will beat him.”
Business Insider reported just over half of the Democratic voters in a new Insider poll said they thought Biden would beat President Donald Trump in a general election.
But that level of support in the poll, conducted in the aftermath of Biden’s disastrous showing in the Iowa caucuses, was down from an average of 64% over the past six months.
