NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Joe Biden announced on Thursday morning via a video he posted to Twitter that he is entering the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field.

"The core values of this nation, our standing in the world. Our very democracy, everything that makes America, America is at stake."

Joe Biden postpones Wednesday's 2020 run announcement: report

Biden expected to launch presidential campaign next week

The former vice president under Barack Obama was reportedly slated to announce his candidacy on Wednesday, but his camp pushed it back a day.

President Donald Trump welcomed Biden to the race in a tweet referring to him as "Sleepy Joe".

Biden, 76, joins a crowded field of 20 Democrats, including California's Sen. Kamala Harris and Rep. Eric Swalwell , New Jersey's Sen. Cory Booker, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Also in the race, and currently garnering a significant amount of attention is South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 37-year-old openly gay Afghanistan veteran who frequently talks about his faith. 

Biden would be the most experienced politician in the race, and the second oldest, after 77-year-old Sanders.
