Former Vice President Joe Biden had unforgiving words for previous presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday night.
“I never thought she was the right candidate,” Biden said at the SALT meeting in Las Vegas, as indicated by Fusion columnist Hamilton Nolan. “I thought I was the right candidatel.”
TheStreet’s Ronald Orol, who was at the SkyBridge Capital occasion, said the audience applauded at Biden’s remarks.
TheStreet quoted him as saying: “No man or lady ought to report for the administration unless they really trust that for that crossroads in the country’s history they are the most qualified individual to manage the issues confronting the nation,”
He likewise didn’t preclude running himself in 2020, as indicated by different reports from the event.
Biden has in the past communicated regret at not running for the Democratic selection. In a discourse in March, he said he was the “best qualified.”
“I had moved toward running for president, and in spite of the fact that it would very difficult primary,, I think I could have won. I don’t have the foggiest idea, perhaps not. Be that as it may, I thought I could have won,” he stated, The Hill detailed at the time.
And keeping in mind that he upheld Clinton all through the battle, he has since been reproachful of her run, saying in December that she never knew why she was running.
“I don’t think she at any point truly made sense of it,” Biden stated, as indicated by the Los Angeles Times.
