As former Vice President Joe Biden continues to stir up speculation over his potential presidential bid in 2020, he made an honest case to students at the University of Montana on Monday night for why they should trust him: I make mistakes, but at least I don’t lie.

“I am a gaffe machine, but my God what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can’t tell the truth,” he said, according to CNN. “I’m ready to litigate all those things, the question is what kind of nation are we becoming? What are we going to do? Who are we?”

“Whether or not I run, whoever runs, I’m going to break my neck to make sure they win,” he continued. “We can’t have four more years.”

Biden acknowledged he thinks he’s the “most qualified person” in the U.S. to run for president, but said a 2020 run is a decision he will make as a family “unit.”
