Joe Biden shared a harsh assessment of the 2016 election and Hillary Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee.

The former Obama administration vice president slammed Clinton at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas on Thursday, claiming he would have been the better choice to lead the party to victory.

“I never thought she was the correct candidate. I thought I was the correct candidate,” he told the audience.

“No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for the that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country,” he said.

Biden even went on to rub more salt in the wound by adding, he never thought Clinton “was a great candidate,” according to a transcript obtained by Business Insider’s Brett LoGiurato.

Could Biden’s popularity as the sidekick to former President Obama have catapulted him to presidency? He chose not to run for the Democratic nomination as his focus was on his family and the loss of his son, Beau Biden, to brain cancer in 2015.

“You should never run for president unless you can look the public in the eye, and say ‘I give you my word, you’ll have all my energy and all my time,’” Biden said, according to The Street.

But the 74 year-old did not rule out a comeback, responding to whether or not he would run in 2020.

“Could I? Yes. Would I? Probably not,” Biden said at Thursday’s conference.

“My family has to get back together,” he said. “If I get those things done, and I’m healthy and viable, and it looks like I’m the best man to do it, I may very well do it, but my family comes first.”

Biden also announced that he would be donating the $ 200,000 speaking fee he received from the event to charity.

Despite his claims and presidential aspirations, Biden’s popularity make have taken a few hits after his jab at Clinton. Got to give it to him though for sheer lack of humility.
