Joe Biden said he'd announce if he supported an effort by Democrats to expand the Supreme Court before the election, arguing a statement three weeks before Nov. 3 would distract from the rushed confirmation process of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

At an ABC News forum held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and moderated by the ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden said "I'm not a fan of court packing."

"Depends on how it's handled," he said of the Barrett confirmation. "Depends on how much they rush this … if they vote [on confirmation] before the election … I'm open to consider what happens from that point on," he said.

"I'll have an answer on [court parking]" before the election, he vowed, adding the answer would be "depending on how they handle this."

"Presidents come and go. Justices stay and stay and stay," he added.
