Biden 2020? Watters Doesn't Think Americans Want 'More of the Swamp'
President Trump ripped Joe Biden in a CBS interview, saying running against the former vice president in 2020 would be a “dream” and claiming former President Barack Obama “took him out of the garbage heap” in 2008.
“Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That's a dream,” Trump said when asked about a Biden 2020 bid. “Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than one percent, and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I'd love to have it be Biden.”
Biden, 75, has since said he is considering a possible run for the 2020 Democratic nomination. On Tuesday, he said that he had set a deadline of January to make a decision.
On "The Five," Jesse Watters said Biden's chances could be hurt by the fact that he is a "lifelong politician."
"I don't know if this country wants more of the establishment, more of the swamp, more of these professional politicians," Watters said.
Juan Williams agreed that Biden has "a lot of baggage" from his decades in politics, and that could hurt him in the Democratic primary if he decides to run.
Williams pointed to Biden's more conservative track record on abortion and his infamous questioning of Anita Hill during a 1991 confirmation hearing on the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.
"I think a lot of women might have questions," Williams said.
