Speaking with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro in a weekend interview, President Trump slammed former Vice President and likely 2020 candidate Joe Biden as “weak.”
Discussing Biden’s previous performances, Trump said “he ran two or three times, he never got above one percent,” before adding, “And then, Obama came along and took him off the trash heap, and he became a vice president.”
Trump went on to state that “So far, I love the competition, I love what I see,” and said he is “not worried” about any would-be Democrat opponent for the upcoming election.
Biden, who is seen by many liberal voters as a viable candidate to oppose President Trump in 2020, has continued to fuel speculation as to a White House bid, including recently touting himself as “the most qualified candidate” to be the next president.
Although he has not yet officially announced his intention to run, Biden is largely expected to declare in the coming weeks, and would join the ranks of Democrats Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and Julian Castro, should he attempt to campaign.
