IANS  |  Washington 

Former US Vice has said that he was not ruling out a run in 2020, saying all options remain open, the media reported.

"I'm really hoping that some other folks step up. I think we have some really good people," Biden said of the potential other 2020 Democratic hopefuls in an interview on Sunday.

Biden, also a two-time presidential aspirant (1988 and 2008), said he needed to know that whoever carries the Democratic Party's nomination is someone who can beat Donald Trump, reports Politico news.

Asked if he really considered running in 2020, Biden said former gave some good advice.

"I know Barack always asked me that question. And he said what's going to make the decision.

"I've got to be able to look in the mirror, and, if I walk away, know I'm not walking away because I'm afraid or I'm worried about losing or that I just don't want to take on the responsibility."

The death of his son Beau, who passed away in 2015 due to cancer, and the impact on the larger will also be part of the former Vice President's decision, reports Politico.
