Wisconsin Republican Rep. Sean Duffy said he would bet on President Donald Trump over former Vice President Joe Biden if the two were to get in win a fight.
Duffy criticized Biden for his comments towards Trump, in an interview with “Fox & Friends” Thursday, saying Biden was too scared to run for president against Trump because he did not “have the backbone” to compete against Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
The comments come after Biden claimed that he would have “beat the hell out of” Trump if they were still in high school, in a speech Tuesday. Biden’s comments sparked a warning message from Trump the following morning, saying Biden is “weak, both mentally and physically,” Trump said. “He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way”
The Republican congressman also said he would bet on Trump to beat Biden in a fight, even if it were held “today.” However, Duffy did mention that he thought it was “ridiculous” that the two are resorting to violence over their disagreements.
“As a sitting vice president he had a chance to run for president but he was frightened away by Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, he didn’t have the backbone to run for president,” Duffy said. “I would bet on Donald Trump whether they’re back in high school or today to take out Joe Biden, but this is ridiculous. When you can’t win the debate, you go to violence.”
