Just over two years ago, then-Vice President Joe Biden announced that he would not run to succeed President Barack Obama in the 2016 presidential election. This week, he admitted he regrets that he doesn’t currently occupy the Oval Office given the potential he sees in the United States.
“I regret that I am not president because I think there is so much opportunity,” Biden told Oprah Winfrey in a clip from an OWN Network interview aired exclusively by “Good Morning America” on Thursday. “I think America is so incredibly well-positioned.”
Biden, who served eight years as Obama’s vice president after 36 years in the U.S. Senate, said he did not have second thoughts, however, about the reason why he passed up the opportunity to enter the race.
“I don’t regret the decision I made because it was the right decision for my family,” he said.
