Biden sat for a surprise interview during a visit to New York.

In one of the most revealing passages he talked of his despair at the death of Neilia and their 13-month-old daughter Naomi in December 1972.

‘I don’t drink. That’s not a virtue. I just never drank,’ he said.

‘And I actually thought about you know, you don’t have to be crazy to commit suicide. If you’ve been at the top of a mountain you think it’s never going to be there again.

The live radio interview took listeners by surprise. Biden has sat for few interviews since taking office and the appearance was not listed on his public schedule.
