Washington: US Vice-President Joe Biden has said that he may run for the post of President in 2020, the media reported.
"Yeah, I am. I am going to run in 2020," Biden told reporters on Monday when asked if he would run for office again.
When asked what role he would seek, the 74-year-old vice-president responded: "For President. And also, you know so, what the hell man, anyway."
However, he also said that he was not committed to run, reported CNBC. "I'm not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening," he said.
Biden previously pursued the Democratic presidential nomination in 1988 and in 2008, but dropped out of the race early on both occasions.
In 2015, Biden also ruled out running for the 2016 presidential nomination, in a race that would have pitted him against Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
