    Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged Tuesday that it is possible Donald Trump could be America's next president.

    "Yes, I think it's possible,'' Biden told "Today's" Savannah Guthrie during a live broadcast from the White House on Tuesday when asked whether he could imagine Trump in the Oval Office.

    "I hope that if that were to occur — I hope it doesn't because I have fundamentally different views than he does — I'd hope that he gets a lot more serious about the issues, a lot more serious about gaining knowledge about this this nation functions and foreign policy and domestic policy, but look, that's a long way off."

    Meanwhile, President Obama told "Today's" Matt Lauer earlier that Trump's message wasn't connecting with a majority of voters, saying, "Talk to me if he wins."

    Biden and Obama both agreed that Trump's bid for the Republican nomination was polarizing. 

    "I think he is divisive,'' Biden said. "I think he'd have to acknowledge that he's very divisive. That's not healthy. We always do best when we act as one America."
