Biden, who launched bids in the 1988 and 2008 presidential races, chose not to run for president in the 2016 race despite calls from Democrats for him to enter the race.

“Unfortunately, I believe we’re out of time — the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination,” Biden said at the time, speaking at the White House Rose Garden.

Biden in 2016 said he would continue focusing on the “cancer moonshot” initiative once leaving office.
