Biden is backing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over President Donald Trump, saying the Democratic nominee is “the only one who’s really going to be able to keep our country safe.”
The former vice president told Fox News’ “Hannity” on Friday that the president has threatened to revoke the Republican’s 2020 electoral votes, which would make the election between Trump and Democratic nominee Bernie Sanders on Nov. 8, 2020, meaningless.
“It’s the only way to win it,” Biden said.
“You’ve got to go back to a constitutional amendment process.
You’ve got a lot of reasons why.
One, you’ve got an election that’s on the calendar.”
Biden said he doesn’t believe the president will use the threat of overturning the 2020 election to try to change the way the U.S. elects a president.
“We’ve seen a president over time that, he will threaten to withdraw a presidential election and, you know, he is a liar.
He’s been a liar,” Biden told Fox.
“But, you do what you have to do, and if that means that we go into a new election and the president doesn’t have the power to do that, that’s the way you have the country.
You go back and do the constitutional amendment.”
Bidens decision not to vote for Trump, which he did last year, comes after Trump threatened to overturn the 2020 vote if Clinton is elected president.
The president made the threat during a news conference on Thursday where he said the 2020 electoral vote would be a “disaster” and would be “rigged.”
Trump’s comments came amid a spate of other recent political scandals, including allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 midterm elections.
Biden’s comments come after a slew of other political scandals in recent months have also come to light.
The vice president has been a vocal supporter of Clinton, even while he endorsed her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in 2016.
In March, Biden said he was proud to have supported the Clintons during their time in office.
In a statement, Biden praised his former Democratic Party boss, saying, “I was a Democrat and I voted for my party, but I’m a Democrat now.”
“I’m proud to be a Democrat,” Biden continued.
“I’m also a Democrat who knows what it takes to win elections, and I’ll always be proud to vote my party’s ticket.”
