Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar declared she hasn't endorsed former vice president and Democratic 2020 frontrunner, Joe Biden, saying he isn't the candidate to "tackle systematic challenges."

The 'squad' member made it clear that Biden is the one candidate she doesn’t want to see win the Democratic nomination.

Speaking to The Guardian, Omar weighed in Biden saying he is not the candidate “to tackle a lot of the systematic challenges that we have."

Omar added that she doesn't believe Biden can excite the party’s base.

“There are few people who fit into the kind of progress that we all want to see in this country,” Omar said at the Iowa People’s Presidential Forum.

“And I would say he is not one of them.”

“I think it has been very clear to many of the people who have been creating the kind of movement that is exciting generations, that we want somebody who really has a plan that is going to tackle a lot of the systematic challenges that we have, and he doesn’t,” she said.

Some party activists have criticized Biden since entering the presidential race for being insufficiently progressive.

Despite this, Biden has maintained a steady lead in most polling over Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Recently Biden has also been under the limelight for a series of blunders, making even his own campaign managers question his ability to run for 2020.

Last month, Biden defended his recent spate of embarrassing blunders by insisting he is "not going nuts."

Biden, whose neurosurgeon recently stepped in to reassure voters the former vice president had not suffered brain damage, continues to add to the catalog of gaffes.

The former Vice president attempted to comfort his audience during a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday by telling them that he isn't losing it.

"I want to be clear; I’m not going nuts," Biden said.

Biden's comment came after he forgot where he had given another speech, just hours before at Dartmouth College.

“I’m not sure whether it was the medical school or where the hell I spoke. But it was on the campus," Biden said.
