Biden moving toward 2020 presidential run: report

Former Vice President Joe Biden is edging closer to a presidential run and has said privately that he sees himself as the only Democrat who can defeat President Trump in 2020, according to Politico.

Biden reportedly views himself as a well-seasoned statesman, who could mend deep seeded divisions across the country, as well as within the Democratic Party.

“He’s a great respecter of fate,” a source close to Biden told Politico, adding, “At some point, it may turn into fate and planning.”

Speculation has swirled around a potential Biden presidential bid in recent months and the former senator does not appear to be staying out of politics.

Biden has been one of President Trump's most vocal critics, recently tearing into what he called "phony nationalism" that is "undermining the social fabric" of the U.S.

Why did Joe Biden not run in 2016? 

FLASHBACK: 

In his new memoir, former Vice President Joe Biden says he knew he was capable of beating Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, but he decided not to run for fear of a "stop at nothing" campaign by her backers.

"My numbers on trustworthiness, honesty, and empathy were as high as they had ever been. And I was strongest where the most formidable candidate, Hillary Clinton, was weakest: the key swing states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida," Biden writes in "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose."
