The vice president announced Wednesday that he will not launch a bid for the White House, saying that he’d “run out of time” to launch a successful bid for the Democratic nomination.
“But while I will not be a candidate, I will not be silent,” Biden said from the White House Rose Garden. “I intend to speak out clearly and forcefully, to influence as much as I can, where we stand as a party, and where we need to go as a nation.”
The outspoken GOP frontrunner took little time responding to the announcement, taking a shot a Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the process.
I think Joe Biden made correct decision for him & his family. Personally, I would rather run against Hillary because her record is so bad.

On Thursday, Trump posted a short video on social media of himself speaking at his desk, reiterating that he wanted to face Clinton and that Biden “did the right thing.”
