The whistleblower report and the consequences from the copy of the highly controversial phone call between Trump and Zelensky in this summer triggered a formal impeachment inquiry in the house of representatives. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., although, said on Tuesday that the house would not vote, at this point in time, to formalize the impeachment.

Biden held on Tuesday that Trump’s efforts were simply because of his concern for his 2020 re-election chances, especially against Biden. Several polls have shown Biden as the Dems’ presidential frontrunner during the primary season, and some have suggested he would have an edge against Trump in a General election.

“What we need to do now is focus on Donald Trump,” Biden continued, a line he has used repeated, often on social media. “He wanted me to candidates not to the. He goes after me, because he knows, if I get the nomination, I’m going to beat him like a drum.”
