Trump tweets that he could beat Joe Biden in a fight

President Donald Trump on Thursday morning responded to comments from former Vice President Joe Biden saying he would have “beat the hell out” of Trump in school for how he treats women.

At an anti-sexual assault rally in Florida, Biden said he would have beaten Trump up if they were in high school for the frequent disrespectful comments Trump has made about women.

On Thursday morning, Trump coined a new nickname for Biden and insinuated that he would be the one to win a fight between the two men.

“Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy,” Trump tweeted. “Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe.”

During the University of Miami rally, Biden — who has long worked to end violence against womencriticized Trump for his “grab ’em by the p*ssy” comments and echoed remarks he’d made in 2016.

“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Biden said. “They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said, ‘no.’ I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'”

Biden said he had been in “a lot of locker rooms” in his life, shooting down the idea that Trump’s comments were excusable “locker room talk.”

“I’m a pretty damn good athlete,” Biden continued. “Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
