Joe Biden says voters simply 'don't deserve' to know his positions

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has once again refused to reveal his position on packing the Supreme Court, arguing that voters "don't deserve" to know his stance before they head to the polls for the November election.

The former vice president reiterated his stance while taking questions from the media during a Friday interview in Las Vegas, Nevada.

On the previous day in Arizona, Biden had already refused to reveal his thoughts on court-packing.

He claimed that stating his views would only grab headlines and take focus away from the Trump administration's effort to confirm SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

Biden was approached by KTNV reporter Ross DiMattei, who told the ex-VP that viewers were anxious to know if he supported expanding the Supreme Court to more than nine judges.

"This is the number one thing that I've been asked about from viewers in the last couple of days," said DiMattei.

"Well, you've been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans," Biden responded.

"Don't the voters deserve to know where you stand on -" DiMattei started before he was cut off by Biden in the middle of his question.

"No, they don't deserve," Biden said before attempting to shift attention to President Trump and his administration.

"I'm not gonna play his game, he'd love me to talk about, and I've already said something on court-packing, he'd love that to be the discussion instead of what he's doing now.

"He's about to make a pick in the middle of an election, first time it's ever been done, first time in history it's ever been done."

WATCH:

Biden claimed his position on packing is a non-issue, but Trump is making it one to  “to take the eye off the ball — change the subject.”

“He’d love [packing] to be the discussion,” Biden added.

On Wednesday, Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris, refused to answer direct questions about packing the court during her debate with Vice President Mike Pence.

However, despite her silence on the issue now, Harris was once a vocal supporter of Supreme Court packing.

As Neon Nettle reported Friday, a reporter with the New York Times has claimed that the Democrat vice-presidential nominee admitted to him that she wants to pack the Supreme Court.

During an episode of the newspaper’s podcast, NYT journalist Alexander Burns said that Sen. Harris (D-CA) told him last year that she was “absolutely open” to court-packing.

“Senator Harris told me in an interview, actually, that she was absolutely open to doing that,” Burns said. 

Top Democrats in Congress, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), have threatened to add more justices to the Supreme Court to thwart the 6-3 majority that conservatives will have if Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s nominee, is confirmed to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s seat on the bench.
