Biden tells Colbert: I don't plan to run in 2020

Vice President Biden said late Tuesday that he does not plan to run for president in 2020 after telling reporters on Monday that he would.

“I’ve become a great respecter of fate. I don’t plan on running again, but to say you know what’s going to happen in four years, I just think is not rational,” Biden said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

“I can’t see the circumstance in which I’d run. But what I learned a long, long time ago Steve, is to never say never,” he added. “You don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Biden announced in October of 2015 he would not seek the Democratic nomination for president, several months after the death of his son, Beau Biden. 

“I don’t regret that actual decision. The decision was the right decision for me to have made,” Biden said of the decision not to run in 2016.
