The Democratic presidential candidate has been a bit of a political mystery since his presidential campaign started, and his relationship with President Donald Trump and his political ambitions are still a mystery.
The question of Biden’s political future, as well as his relationship to Schumer, has been the subject of speculation for the last few weeks, and Biden himself has been in some pretty serious trouble.
On Monday, the White House confirmed that Biden had resigned from the White National Committee following his resignation from the Senate earlier this year.
The resignation announcement was first reported by Politico.
A Biden spokeswoman did not immediately respond to NBC News’ request for comment.
A week later, Biden’s spokesman did not respond to a request for clarification on Biden’s resignation, but the former vice president has said that he plans to run for re-election in 2020.
On Tuesday, Biden tweeted that he is resigning as chair of the DNC, and he also told NBC News that he would be stepping down as president of the United States.
“The time has come to move on from the Democratic National Committee, a group that has been plagued with mismanagement and dysfunction, and to focus on my own campaign for president in 2020,” Biden said.
“I will not be participating in any further Democratic Party efforts that promote a false narrative of my character and policies,” Biden added.
Biden, who is currently the longest serving Democratic vice president, has come under fire from some of his party’s most powerful figures for his role in the DNC scandal.
While Schumer, the incoming Senate majority leader, has said he expects Biden to be back on the DNC chair team, Biden has been criticized by several of his fellow Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D (Mass.).
The Democrats’ leadership team has been rocked by a series of controversies in recent weeks.
On Wednesday, Democratic lawmakers announced that they will vote to impeach Trump over his firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
Bidens Democratic challenger, former Maryland Gov.
Martin O’Malley, is also planning to run against Biden in 2020, although Biden has yet to publicly endorse his bid.
On Friday, Biden also issued a statement defending the decision to resign from the DNC.
“While I am pleased to be stepping aside as chair, I cannot and will not allow my personal views or positions to define my party, and I am very grateful to the many Democrats who have worked hard over the years to get this party where it is today,” Biden wrote.
“I will continue to fight for the Democratic Party, and the American people, to move forward as a unified force in Washington.”
On Saturday, Biden announced that he was resigning from the Board of Directors of the White Helmets organization, a volunteer group that is helping Syrian civilians rebuild their lives after the conflict in Syria began.
The White Helmet has been praised for its humanitarian work.
The White Helmats is a Syrian nonprofit organization that provides medical and medical support to civilians suffering from the Syrian civil war.
The group has been accused of being complicit in the war crimes of the Syrian government, with a report from The Guardian saying that the organization “is known for being a front for the Syrian military and the Assad regime.”
On Sunday, Biden called for the White Helmet to be held accountable for the “crimes” it has committed in its fight against the Syrian opposition.
“What I call for is a UN investigation into the White Hounds crimes against humanity, crimes against the people of Syria, crimes committed by White Helmits in the fight against Syrian civilians, crimes perpetrated by the White Hat in Syria,” Biden told MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
“So, I’m asking the UN to get on that.”
On Monday morning, Biden was still discussing the resignation with NBC’s Matt Lauer.
“That’s my goal,” Biden continued.
“And I will do it, I think, with integrity, with humility and with compassion, with an understanding that we all have to get a grip on things and we all need to come together as a nation.”
Biden also told Lauer that he hopes his announcement on Wednesday that he intends to run “has the potential to actually put a dent in the Democrats’ hopes of holding on to their House majority,” adding that he “would be happy to be a part of that, too.”
