Biden spoke from a stage and talked about being a consensus builder with some in attendance shouting “Go Joe!” as he spoke.

“I promise you if we elect a Democrat this time — I predict to you whether it is me or someone else — but I guarantee you if it's me, what's gonna happen is, we're going to see this country come together like it hasn't in a long time,” Biden said, according to a pool report, to a crowd that gathered on the home's front lawn under lamps. “Because people are tired, they're sick and tired of what's happening. Let's lift our heads up. Again, not a joke, remember who the hell we are.”

He said that about a half dozen of the attendees had called him over the past two years to urge him to run, evening saying, “You don't have a choice — run. This is not about you.” “I said, ‘Thank you very much,'” as the crowd laughed.

Those present include  Those present also included producer Eric Ortner, Tennis Channel President Ken Solomon; Colleen Bell, former U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, and her husband, producer Bradley Bell; Noah Mamet, former U.S. Ambassador to Argentina; Sony- senior vice president Eric Paquette; entrepreneur Jon Vein; and Michael and Mattie Lawson. As one attendee told Variety, “It is the band getting back together.”

It is important to note there are many candidates early in the race, the attendees said that Biden “closed a lot of deals” convincing donors he is best suited to take on President Trump.

Biden was critical of Wall Street philosophy saying, “Since when are they the only job creators? Since when has that happened? Since when has it become the fact that there's no obligation to employees?” He added, “Stockholders aren't the only job creators.”

Biden talked about the freedom of the press promising, “every single fundraiser I do” will allow for reporters to attend as he explains,  “I don't want to hear anybody say we are doing things in secret.”

Biden also gave a warning of what will happen to America if Trump is reelected.

“Four years of this president will be an aberration in a moment in ; eight years will fundamentally change who we are beginning particularly in foreign policy,” he said.
