"Anybody can beat him."

When asked why he thinks he can beat President Donald Trump in 2020, former vice president Joe Biden insisted "I think anybody can beat him."

PJ Media's own Nicholas Ballasy caught the comment and reported it on The Intercept.

While speaking at a recent event promoting his new book, “American Promise,” Biden said, “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president.”

After delivering an address at the Lantos Foundation’s 10th anniversary gala, where he was recognized with a legacy award, Biden was asked specifically by The Intercept why he thinks he’s the most qualified person to take on Trump.

“You don’t run for president unless you think you are qualified,” Biden replied.

“Why do you think you could beat President Trump? Why is this your time?” the former Delaware senator was asked.

“I think anybody can beat him,” Biden responded.

Many Democrats may be able to defeat Trump, but it will remain a difficult challenge for whomever the Democrats nominate. Biden is overconfident, in my estimation.
