Biden says if he loses it could mean he was a 'lousy candidate'


Joe Biden says if he loses it could mean he was a ‘lousy candidate’ and he’ll go back to being a college professor – and says he WON’T be able to influence Donald Trump’s presidency

  • Democrat Joe Biden said he hoped it was more about the campaign he ran than the country overall if he loses in November to President Donald Trump 
  •  ‘Well, could say I’m a lousy candidate and I didn’t do a job,’ Biden answered when asked by ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos how he’d interpret a loss 
  • ‘I hope, that it doesn’t say that we are racially, ethnically and religiously at odds with one another as it appears the president wants us to be,’ Biden said 
  • The former vice president said he’d go back to teaching at the University of Pennsylvania and to his institute at the University of Delaware
  • He also told a voter at the Philadelphia townhall that he likely wouldn’t have much influence over a second Trump term  
  • ‘Things have not lent themselves to him learning from what’s happened, what’s come before,’ Biden said 

Democrat Joe Biden said he hoped it was more about the campaign he ran than the country overall if he loses the November presidential election to President Donald Trump. 

‘Well, could say I’m a lousy candidate and I didn’t do a job,’ Biden said when asked how he would interpret a loss. ‘But I think, I hope, that it doesn’t say that we are racially, ethnically and religiously at odds with one another as it appears the president wants us to be.’   

Biden said he’d go back to being a college professor, though told a voter at his Philadelphia ABC News town hall that he wouldn’t likely be able to have much influence on a Trump second term.

‘Well, to be very honest with you, I think that’s very hard,’ Biden replied when asked how he would use his platform to urge Trump and Trump’s supporters ‘toward the ideals of a more perfect union.’ 

‘Things have not lent themselves to him learning from what’s happened, what’s come before,’ Biden continued. 

He pointed to the president’s December impeachment.  

‘Instead of being chastened by being one of the few presidents, the only president to be impeached and have a member of his own party vote to expel him, it emboldened him,’ Biden said. 

Trump was impeached over a pressure campaign to have the Ukrainian president announce investigations into Biden and his son Hunter. 

‘So what I’ll do, hopefully I’ll go back to being a professor at the University of Pennsylvania and making the case that I have made at the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware, focusing on these same issues, what constitutes decency and honor in this country,’ Biden said. 

‘The things that got me involved in public life to begin with,’ he noted. 

As he often does on the campaign trail, he again told the audience how his father instilled in him that everyone deserved dignity. 

‘Whether I am a defeated candidate for president back teaching or I’m elected president, it’s a major element of everything that I’m about because it reflects who we are as a nation,’ Biden said. 

Biden participated in a 90-minute townhall in Philadelphia, in the swing state of Pennsylvania, after the second debate between the Democrat and Trump had been cancelled. 

The president refused to participate in a debate virtually, which the Commission on Presidential Debates pushed because Trump had been infected with COVID-19. 

Afterward, Biden was seen sticking around the auditorium where the townhall took place, answering more audience members’ questions. 

He had promised one of the questioners, a young Black man, that he would talk to him afterward more about his plans for the community, as the participant had expressed that he might not vote.
