United States Vice President Joe Biden appears to be flirting with the idea of a possible presidential run in the next election.
According to The Hill, Biden told reporters in the Capitol Monday that he is going to run.
"I am going to run in 2020," Biden said. "What the hell man, anyway."

NBC News Correspondent Hallie Jackson tweeted the exchange between Biden and reporters.
According to her records, when questioned whether Biden was kidding about a presidential run, he responded, "I am not committing not to run, I'm not committing to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening."
Biden turned down a possible run in the recent election in October 2015 saying the window 'had closed' for a successful campaign. He also mentioned his family's grief as this announcement was shortly after losing his son, Beau, to cancer.
Rather, the Vice President actively endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and spoke at Clinton rallies multiple times.
With Trump's recent win, the President-Elect beat out Ronald Reagan (who was 69 during his presidency) as the oldest President at 70-years-old. A presidential win for the current Vice President would top the age record with Biden being 78 in 2020.
Biden has spoken about his plans after his and Obama's term in the White House. The Hill reports that Biden plans on working on his cancer moonshot initiative, "a possible policy project with a major university and writing a book."
