Last week, Vice President Joe Biden talked about throwing down with Donald Trump
“The press always asks me: Don’t I wish I were debating him?” he said. ”No, I wish I were in high school, I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”
Trump, never one to shy away from confrontation, at least verbally, had this to say in response at a Florida rally on Tuesday.
“Did you see where Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn? Me. He wants to. I’d love that. I’d love that. You know when he’s Mr. Tough Guy? When he’s standing behind the microphone by himself — that’s when.”
Trump also said that if he had been the one to first spout fighting words, the media would have been all over him: “If I said that, they’d say: ‘He’s violent. How could he have done that.’”
He kept with the theme when turned to the more pressing issue.
“Let’s knock out Hillary Clinton,” Trump said. “She’s as crooked as a three-dollar bill.”
