"I've been around too long" to rule out a 2020 run, he told NBC's "Today".

"But if he had to act right now, "I would say no because I am just working through a whole lot, I'm getting there and I want to focus on the book".

Biden, 74, cast some doubts on the prospect in a separate interview with Snapchat's "Good Luck America", which is not yet released but was seen by the Associated Press. It chronicles Biden's life around the time of his son's death.

Since November, Biden has leaned in both directions concerning a potential future bid. A few weeks later, he fueled speculation by starting a Democratic political action committee.

Biden made the comments while promoting a new book, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and goal".

The former vice president and DE senator said Monday he will concentrate on the book and on helping Democrats win midterm elections next year.

Hillary Clinton was unable to get her message out in 2016, Biden said, adding that he does not know if he would have beaten Donald Trump in the general election.

"I've done it a long time", the former senator from DE said. "I did 83 campaign events for Hillary". "I would never have done that".

Biden had sought the Democratic presidential nomination for the 1988 and 2008 elections.

"The polling data at the time said yes, but I wasn't in the race", he said.
