Former vice president Joe Biden got a little testy when asked about his feud with President Trump on Capitol Hill Friday.
A reporter asked Biden, “Do you care to respond to the president’s tweet, sir?”
“Oh, no,” he said.
“No response? Would you really fight the president, sir?”
“I was talking about high school,” Biden said, visibly irritated. “Go back and read what I said. I said high school.”
Biden said in a speech Tuesday that he would “beat the hell” out of President Trump.
He told a crowd at the University of Miami, “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.'” (RELATED: Biden Says He’d Have ‘Beat The Hell’ Out Of Trump In High School [VIDEO])
President Trump responded by tweeting:
Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. 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!
