Joe Biden said on Friday that he & # 39; no problem & # 39; has with Michael Bloomberg participating in the race for the Democratic nomination 2020 and pointed out that he is doing well in the polls.
& # 39; Michael is a solid man and let's see where it goes, & # 39; the former vice president told reporters in New Hampshire shortly after he signed up for the Democratic primary vote. & # 39; I have no, no problem. & # 39;
Biden also played down that the former mayor of New York wants to follow the race because Biden was unable to let the Democratic Party merge around his candidacy.
& # 39; In terms of running because of me, the last polls I watched, I am pretty far ahead & he said.

Biden claimed that he should not worry if Michael Bloomberg participates in the 2020 race because he is doing well in the polls against President Trump and his democratic competition
Biden claimed that he is doing well against President Donald Trump and his democratic competition.
& # 39; If I am not mistaken, I am doing reasonably well, both with regard to Trump and with regard to all people who are active in the Democratic primary & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; We still have a way to go and I welcome Michael to the race, & # 39; he added.
He said that he and Bloomberg spoke many times, but refused to give details about when and what they were talking about.
Speculation came from Bloomberg's camp on Thursday that the former mayor of New York would nevertheless apply for the Democratic presidential nomination, despite the fact that he would not be a contender in March.
One of the reasons cited by his team was the concern that no Democratic candidate has blocked the nomination
While Biden leads most of the polls, Elizabeth Warren has won him, especially in the early state of Iowa.
There are also concerns about the poor fundraising of Biden. Biden came fourth in the third quarter, behind Bernie Sanders, Warren and Pete Buttigieg.
Bloomberg occupies the same moderate space on the political spectrum as Biden and many believe that the former vice president would suffer the most damage from a Bloomberg campaign.
Even Trump claimed that it would be Biden who would be the most wounded by a Bloomberg candidacy.
& # 39; I think he's actually going to hurt Biden, & # 39; he said in response to a question from DailyMail.com about Bloomberg's candidacy at the South Lawn of the White House on Friday.
Meanwhile, Biden had strong words for President Trump as the trial of charges is approaching his public phase on Capitol Hill.
The former vice president was asked for comments Ivanka Trump made to the Associated Press, where she said he and his son had created & # 39; wealth as a derivative & # 39; of the public service.
Joe Biden was in New Hampshire, with his wife Jill, to submit his papers for the Democratic primary

& # 39; Tell her to look at my tax return, & # 39; said Biden in response. & # 39; The first time I made money in my life was when I wrote a book about my son. & # 39;
Biden spent his career in public service and does not come from family money.
& # 39; I was not brought up to attack children – not even as adults – but I will tell you something. Tell Mr. Trump: release your tax return and be quiet. Be quiet. Worry about corruption in your house if you have criminals like Rudy Giuliani and the rest of these people. & # 39;
& # 39; I have nothing to apologize for. Mr. Trump, if he wants to tackle corruption, you know where it starts, & he added.
President Trump has cursed Joe and Hunter Biden during his campaign meetings and on Twitter. He has mainly beaten Hunter for his work in the management of a Ukrainian gas company and for the management in a Chinese investment firm.
Trump claimed that the Bidens had earned millions of these contacts, and it was the allegations that he had pressured the Ukraine to investigate the Bidens in exchange for US military assistance that led to the investigation of accusation.
Trump, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and his allies have put pressure on a theory that Biden, as vice-president, has pressured Ukraine to fire a prosecutor to end an investigation into the company where Hunter Biden is in. sat on the board.
The Bidens have been accused of unlawful acts.
Biden on Friday repeated that he did nothing wrong.
& # 39; No one can say that I have not done my job as a representative of the United States of America, the position of our allies, & # 39; he said, & # 39; by losing a corrupt prosecutor. & # 39;
& # 39; Trump does what he always does – try to focus on what the problem is. The problem is that Donald Trump, at least on three occasions, has invited three different countries for different reasons to intervene in American elections. & # 39;
Biden was in New Hampshire to officially submit the state's primary February. He and his wife Jill provided the paperwork and $ 1,000 submission fees.
