Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, interviewed with CNN’s Chris Cuomo that aired on Friday.
During his interview, Biden said that he was not afraid of facing President Trump in 2020 and referred to Trump as the kind of “bully” he’s been known to stand up to his entire life.
“He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth,” Biden said.
“I’m looking forward to this man. You walk behind me in the debate. Come here, man,” he added.
This is not the first time Biden has used “fighting words” towards President Trump.
In March of last year, while speaking to students at the University of Miami, Biden told the audience, “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.” (Continued Below)
However, during an October rally in Topeka, Kansas, President Trump laughed at the former Vice President and said that a fight with Biden “would not last long.”
“Remember he challenged me to a fight? ‘I’d like to take him behind the barn.’ I’d love that. That wouldn’t last long. That would not last long. That wouldn’t last long,” Trump said, imitating Biden.
Trump pointed to his forearm and pretended to blow on Biden, who he then suggested would fall over. “He’s down, and he’ll never get up,” President Trump said jokingly. (Video Below)

When Biden threatened President Trump in March 2018, Trump responded on Twitter:
“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!”
