The former Vice-president of the USA has now become the President of America. Unlike 45th President of America Donald Trump, the current head of the state, Joe is a longtime politician since 1973. He has served as the United States senator from Delaware from 1973 to 2009. Biden has also served as 47th U.S. President Barack Obama’s V.P. from 2009 to 2017. Donald Trump is a real-estate mogul, and Joe Biden’s personal wealth doesn’t even fall near the previous President. However, some successful ventures by Biden have surely increased his wealth over the years. At the start of Joe’s Presidential campaign, he released his financial deets. He also released his state and federal tax returns for 2016, 2017, and 2018 respectively. Biden’s wealth and how he obtained it is easier to trace because he releases tax returns every year. Biden has spent his life with an amalgamation of wealth and hardship. He is also sometimes referred to as “Middle-Class Joe.” The Squander will take a look at Joe Biden’s Net Worth.

His father was wealthy but had endured major financial setbacks. Biden’s family had lived with his maternal grandparents for years. In the 1950s, there was an economic decline in Scranton, and his father didn’t find steady work. Later on, his father found stable work and became a used car salesman, helping them maintain their middle-class lifestyle. Biden received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Delaware.
In 1966, Joe Biden married Neilia Hunter. The couple had three children. She passed away in a car crash in 1972 along with her daughter while Christmas shopping. His sons Beau and Hunter survived the accident and were taken to the hospital immediately. In 1975, Biden met Jill Tracy Jacobs. Joe’s brother arranged a blind date for him. Joe credits her to renew his interest in politics and life. They got married in 1977 by a Catholic Priest at a Chapel. Currently, Jill Tracy Jacobs is Joe Biden’s wife and First Lady of America. The couple has one daughter together, Ashley Blazer. In 2015, Joe’s son Beau Biden died of brain cancer, while Hunter Biden served as Washington attorney and lobbyist.

At the age of 30, Joe Biden became the sixth youngest senator in U.S. history. His early senate activities were focused on consumer protection and environmental issue. He was a staunch supporter of greater government accountability. In 1988, he declared his candidacy for 1988, Democratic Presidential Nomination. Joe was considered a strong candidate for his moderate image. His high-profile rank as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee was also pointing that he could be the next U.S. president. Joe Biden could have been the second-youngest elected President of America after John F. Kennedy. Many people often want to know, how many times has Joe Biden run for President? He didn’t contest for any of the Presidential elections until 2020.
After Joe withdrew from the presidential nomination, Barak Obama said to him that there’s a special place in his administration. Joe declined the vetting offer as V.P. He feared that he would lose his voice in the senate. However, later he changed his mind. In August 2008, Obama announced that Joe Biden would be his running mate. It was because Obama wanted to fill out space with someone on foreign policy and national security experience. Joe Biden served as Vice President of America from 2008 to 2017.
