If Biden decides to run for the presidency, it will be his third attempt following the presidential campaigns in 1988 and 2008. After the 2008 campaign Biden has served two terms as vice president in a tandem with President Barack Obama.

Concerning foreign policy, Biden has been an active supporter of the Ukrainian government of President Petro Poroshenko.
