DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden is back on the campaign trail, this time stumping for Democratic candidates in Wisconsin and Iowa.

He blasted the "forces of hate that have terrorized our fellow Americans for their political beliefs, the color of their skin or their religion" during a speech Tuesday morning in Wisconsin.

His return to Iowa later Tuesday is certain to fuel speculation about whether he'll launch a presidential bid. He's not expected to make an announcement until after the midterms, but some Iowa Democratic activists say his message could resonate amid concerns about the nation's heated political rhetoric.

Biden has long been an unsparing critic of Trump's moral leadership. Campaigning in Nevada this month, he said American values are "being shredded by a president who is all about himself."
