Joe Biden Interviews
Joe Biden spoke with Andrea Mitchell on her MSNBC program in a wide ranging phone interview where he discussed how he sees the 2020 race as it is today, the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, Trump's withdrawal withdrawal from Syria, and what his thoughts are on Trump's continued attacks against his son Hunter.
Joe Biden sat down for an interview with Norah O'Donnell of 60 Minutes for his first major interview since Donald Trump attempted to get dirt on him and his family from the Ukrainian government, a decision that has led to the House of Representatives opening up an impeachment inquiry into the President. Biden forcefully defended him and his sons characters, saying that he has nothing to hide, unlike the President who has refused to release his tax returns. Biden also spent time lamenting the "lasting damage" the Trump Administration will have on the country.
Joe Biden sat down for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live one day after Nancy Pelosi formally announced that the House of Representatives will open impeachment proceedings against President Trump due to the fact that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for him releasing military aid authorized by Congress to the country. Biden expressed deep concern about Trump's actions, saying "It's such a blatant abuse of power that I don't think it can stand. Based on the material that they acknowledged today, it seems to me it's awful hard to avoid the conclusion that it is an impeachable offense and a violation of constitutional responsibility."
Joe Biden sat down with Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" to have a sometimes fun and other times serious discussion about his 2020 Presidential bid.

Biden was also asked about proneness to make gaffes, prompting him to joke that "the reason I came on the Jimmy Kimmel show is..." before diving into a serious discussion.
Joe Biden met with a number of reporters outside of the Hawkeye Area Labor Council Picnic where he answered their questions on a range of topics before entering the picnic event.

He also discussed a recent controversy where he appeared to lump together a number of different stories about military heroism into one story, saying he has nothing to apologize for.
Joe Biden spoke to Anderson Cooper of CNN days after two mass shootings rocked the nation, opening up about a number of family tragedies he has endured in his life as he reflected on the the two shootings that have left at least 31 dead so far. Biden also forcefully pushed back against the narrative that mental illness is to blame for the shootings, saying "hatred is sick, but it’s not a mental illness. White supremacy is wrong. But it’s not mental illness.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden talked with NBC's Garrett Haake after the first Democratic debate to defend himself from attacks by Senator Harris and others on the stage about his record on segregation and the integration of schools during his time in Congress.
