Former United States Vice President and Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden said he has "no problem" with billionaire Michael Bloomberg entering the race to the White House.

" I welcome him in the race. Michael's a solid guy and let's see where it goes," Biden told reporters in New Hampshire. "In terms of he’s running because of me, the last polls I looked at, I’m pretty far ahead," he added and stressed he's doing "pretty well" against both President Donald Trump and his rivals in the Democratic primaries.

Bloomberg officially launched his bid earlier in the day when he joined the Alabama primary field. He reportedly decided to run because he thinks no current Democratic candidate could beat Trump. Meanwhile, Biden allies expressed concerns that Bloomberg could hurt the former vice president's chances of winning the Democratic nomination.
