2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden wants to challenge President Donald Trump to a battle of fitness.
In an MSNBC interview that aired on Tuesday morning, Biden told “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski how he’d deal with Trump if the President made fun of his age or whipped out the “Sleepy Joe” nickname on the debate stage.
“I would say come on Donald. Come on, man,” Biden said, motioning toward himself. “How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal?”
“Jokingly,” he added.
However, the former vice president said that he doesn’t plan to “get down in the dirt” with Trump because that’s “the only place he knows how to fight.”
“I’m just gonna continue to talk about what he’s doing. Why it’s so damaging to America,” Biden said. “And as my mother would say, I’m not gonna take any guff from him.”
