"I have a regret that I am not president", the former vice-president and and 36-year senator from DE tells Oprah Winfrey in an interview airing on OWN's Super Soul Sunday this week.

Biden certainly hasn't been shy about criticizing the current president Donald Trump. "One, do you truly believe you're the most qualified person at the moment - I believed I was".

According to the NBC report, Pence speaks with Biden over the phone at least once a month, and has spoken with Cheney over the phone and at meetings in the White House. "Did any one of you ever think that you would see, in one of the historic cities in America, folks coming out from under rocks and out of fields with torches carrying swastikas literally reciting the same, the same exact anti-Semitic bile that you heard and we heard in the '30s?"

"Clinton backers sent the signal that they would not stop at voting records and policies if I did get in the race", Biden reveals.

President Barack Obama hugs Vice President Joe Biden during funeral services for Biden's son, Beau Biden, Saturday, June 6, 2015, at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Wilmington, Del. And I was strongest where the most formidable candidate, Hillary Clinton, was weakest: "the key swing states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida", Biden writes in "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and goal". "I think the reason I am looking good now is the alternative".

"But anyway, yes, I understand", she said.

Though Biden did not directly refer to Trump in the clips aired by "GMA", he described to Winfrey the characteristics he believes make for a successful leader. "They play to their strengths and try to shore up their weaknesses", he explained. "And the people who don't do that are the people who aren't self-aware enough to know ... because most of the time that abuse ends up in their downfall as well".
