[Ed. – Some world leaders are upset over Trump’s refusal to support their socialist priorities, but it is hard to believe they have ‘begged’ Biden to run.]
The former vice-president made the claims in a call to campaign donors yesterday as he announced he was joining the field of 20 Democrats vying for the presidency.
‘I get calls from people all over the world. World leaders are calling me, and they’re almost begging me to do this, to save the country, save the world,’ Biden said according to Politico.
Biden has been frantically garnering support from donors with flights around the US because of his late entry to the race.
But the former VP, who has twice failed in attempts to become President in 1988 and 2008, is said to have support from several figures in Europe after they praised him during the Munich Security Conference in February.
‘His name has a favourable ring in European ears,’ the former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt said.
