Donald Trump Supports Joe Biden Running For President

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump attempted to shade Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign by reiterating the fact that she is still under investigation for an email scandal that took place while she was Secretary of State. During an interview with WHO Radio’s Simon Conway, Trump said “If [Hillary Clinton is] indicted, she wouldn’t be able to run essentially.” Instead of suggesting Bernie Sanders as the best possible candidate for the Democratic party, Trump said, “Maybe Biden, it could be a couple of other people that you and I both know.” In 2015, the Vice President sacrificed his dreams of running for President after his son, Beau Biden lost his battle to brain cancer. During President Obama’s last State of the Union, he put Biden in charge of “mission control” with the task of finding a cure for cancer. Politico
