Did Joe Biden accidentally admit he's running for president?

Joe Biden is the scheduled headliner at a Democratic Party dinner in DE, his home state, as the former vice president considers whether to make another White House run.

In a keynote speech at a Saturday dinner for the Delaware Democratic Party, Biden boasted that he has "the most progressive record of anybody running". The only problem is that Biden hasn't announced whether he will launch a third run for the White House, despite repeatedly teasing the possibility. He quickly corrected himself, saying "anybody who would run - I didn't mean it".

Biden sounded like a candidate-in-waiting, pushing Democratic policies and accusing President Donald Trump of dividing the country. He said it's no coincidence that "fake news" - one of Trump's favourite labels - "has become the phrase of choice for every despot terrorising his people".

She said she "would like to tell anyone in America, if you're willing to do two years of public service, you can get your college degree paid for".

Other 2020 hopefuls - including Beto O'Rourke, the former Texas congressman who's just joined the crowded field - are visiting early voting states.

But that didn't stop the friendly home-state crowd from reveling in the idea that will jump in.

The Delaware governor, John Carney, said Biden "doesn't just look like he's back; he looks like he's ready for a fight".

"I am not up here to break any news tonight", Carney told the crowd.
