In case you missed it Friday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden gave a speech in front of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Conference in Washington D.C. After strangely joking about his inappropriate touching, using kids as examples, he dove into remarks on issues about workers.
President Trump was paying attention.
I’ve employed thousands of Electrical Workers. They will be voting for me!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 5, 2019

Biden, who hasn't officially entered the race, is polling ahead of the declared Democrat field. From RealClearPolitics:
Biden hasn't officially declared his candidacy for the White House, but told reporters Friday he's getting close to making a decision.

Joe Biden: "I've been told by the lawyer I've got to be careful what I say so I don't start the clock ticking and change my status, but I am very close to making a decision." pic.twitter.com/DFaL4IMvBN
He also told reporters he will have to "campaign differently" due to previously making people uncomfortable.
Biden says events of the last week are "going to have to change how I campaign." He's just answering questions like he's already a candidate.— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) April 5, 2019
Minutes later: "I'm told by the lawyers I've gotta be careful what I say so I don't start the clock ticking and change my status."
