Joe Biden on Thursday took a swipe at Hillary Clinton saying she was “never a great candidate” and wasn’t the best Democrat to take on Donald Trump, The Daily Caller reports.
Reports say that Biden made the remarks during a SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas.
“I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” the former vice president said.
Biden, who continued to keep his options open for a possible run in 2020, however did say that Clinton “would have been a really good president” despite his blunt assessment of the former secretary of state.
In October 2015, Biden publicly said that he will not run for president after considering the decision with his family.
Biden said that he has certain responsibilities to his family now and once those are taken care of, and he’s in good health, he may go ahead with his presidential bid.
