Foreign Leaders Urge Joe Biden to Enter 2020 US Presidential Race - Reports

Biden is laying some groundwork to build up a strong first-day fundraising total, according to The Wall Street Journal, which earlier reported Biden's outreach.

Biden has told supporters and former staff that he will run, according to one source who has knowledge of discussions. "I also don't think Joe Biden's politics and views line up so well with hers", tweeted King.

While Biden has not formally revealed if he will run for president, he has been polling as the top contender for the Democratic nomination, though his age and his race are seen as a drawback by the left wing of the party.

Biden all but gave away his plans last weekend when he spoke at a fundraiser in his home state of Delaware.

More than ten Democrats have already announced their intention to run in the 2020 presidential election, including Senators Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.

Biden, like any other candidate, has a mix of strengths and weaknesses.

While Biden is likely to enter the 2020 presidential race, the encouragement from worldwide leaders fueled his appetite, according to a Democratic Party official.

In the first 24 hours after their announcements, O'Rourke hauled in $6.1 million and Sanders collected almost $6 million. The news of the meeting triggered a wave of speculation that their political fortunes could intertwine next year.
