Joe Biden — the two-term vice president and a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful — opened up about his son Hunter’s struggle with mental health in a CNN interview broadcast Monday evening.

“Hunter is my heart‚” Biden said, referring to his son, 49. “And Hunter has been through some tough times, but he’s fighting. He’s never given up. He’s the most honorable, decent person I know.”

Biden has faced increased scrutiny in recent weeks on issues from his past positions in opposition to busing children to integrate schools to his defense of the 1994 crime bill.

Hunter Biden’s setbacks have also become a point of scrutiny. He candidly discussed them for a story published by the New Yorker last week. He said he assumed his history would be aired during the presidential race, and, he told the New Yorker, he wanted to preempt circulation of piecemeal stories that would reflect poorly on his father.
