How did Joe Biden earn his money and wealth?

Joe Biden is a seasoned politician who was the 47th Vice President of America under Barack Obama’s presidency. He is a Democrat who is also Delaware’s longest-serving senator from 1973 to 2009. Biden’s formal name was Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. He was born in 1942 at Scranton, Pennsylvania and became an attorney in 1969. During his youth, he used to play both football and baseball. As of 2018, Joe Biden’s net worth is $1 million.

Biden became the sixth-youngest senator in the history of the US when he was elected in 1972.  He has been always vocal about what he believed and supported as well as opposed. The Gulf War in 1991 was vehemently opposed by him. He also advocated for intervention in the Bosnian War in 1994 and 1995. He dealt with issues on drug policy, civil liberties, and crime prevention when he served as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Biden tried to win the presidential nomination two times in 1988 and 2009 but dropped out eventually. He was selected by Barack Obama to be his running mate in the elections.

There were murmurs of Biden preparing for a possible bid in the Democratic presidential elections in 2016 but he confirmed that he would not be running for it. Post-retirement as the Vice President of America, Biden was named by the University of Pennsylvania as the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice professor in 2017. He will be focusing on topics such as diplomacy, foreign policy, and national security. He will also be leading the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.

Biden was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his service to his country by Obama in 2017. Biden has written two books “Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics” (2008) which didn’t bring in any substantial royalties and “Promise Me, Dad” (2017) based on his son Beau Biden’s early death.
