Vice President Joe Biden didn't hold anything back Sunday during an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper when asked about President-elect Donald Trump.

According to Biden, who has been a mainstay in Washington politics for more than four decades, Trump ran the "most vicious" campaign he had ever witnessed.

Biden explained during his interview on CNN "State of the Union" that part of the reason Hillary Clinton lost to Trump — and why only "10 percent" of her supporters can even describe Clinton's policy positions — is because of the campaign tactics employed by Trump.

"It got drowned out by the most vicious campaign, the craziest campaign, I’ve ever witnessed," Biden said.

"The bulk of the campaign was about emails or his boorish behavior," the vice president added.

During the interview, Biden explained that much of the reason why millions of manufacturing jobs have been outsourced under himself and President Barack Obama is because they had so many problems on their plate coming into office that they were just trying to keep "the car from going off the cliff."

Biden also explained that he thought Obama, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) were the "future" of the Democratic Party.
