Donald Trump has hit out at the former Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden in an early morning tweet suggesting he could beat the 75-year-old in a fight.
After Mr Biden said he would have “beat the hell out of” Trump if they were both in high school together, the President said Mr Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way”.
The US president said the former Vice President to Barack Obama was trying to “act like a tough” but argued he was in fact both mentally and physically “weak”.
Mr Trump said Mr Biden did not know him and warned the Democrat not to “threaten” him.
“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,” Mr Trump tweeted.
“He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!”
It is not certain what Mr Trump was alluding to but it could be a reference to the times the former Vice President has become emotional during public appearances.
