Former Vice President Joe Biden says Americans are not satisfied with the state of affairs on Capitol Hill and are gearing up to make changes.

"I have faith in the American people as they sort this through. They're not going to have any of it," Biden, who served under President Barack Obama, said Wednesday in Portland, Maine, the Bangor Daily News and Portland Press Herald reported.

"They're not going to have any of it. I believe you're going to see a significant change in this next election."

During an hourlong conversation with former Sen. George Mitchell, Biden also denounced President Donald Trump's "America First notion," although he did not mention the commander in chief by name.

The 75-year-old Democrat added that while he is "incredibly optimistic" about the nation's future, "there is one thing that worries me and it's not the president's behavior."

That worry is the rise of the alt-right movement of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and hate groups, Biden said, adding that it wasn't right for Trump to remark that say white nationalists who battled protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year included some "very fine people."

"We have to remember, our children are listening," Biden told the audience at Portland's Merrill Auditorium.

Biden said he has faith in the American people, saying they won't tolerate such extremist groups.

"I believe you are going to see a significant change in the next election," Biden said, a remark that promoted one woman to yell, "Run Joey, run."

The former vice president, who has not ruled out a White House run in 2020, is currently touring to promote his memoir, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and Purpose," about the death of his son Beau from brain cancer in 2015.
