At a campaign rally on Sunday in Opa-Locka, Florida, Trump suggested that he would like to fight former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump said he would like to fight Joe Biden most "of all the people in the world," suggesting that he would win because Biden has weak legs.
"He's very agitated, so angry," Trump said of Biden. "But he's a weak person, you know. He challenged me a year and a half ago, you know. 'I'd like to take him behind a barn.' I said, 'Of all the people in the world that I could fight, that's the one I'd probably like to most fight. Those legs have gotten very thin. Not a lot of base. You wouldn't have to close the fist."
Trump went on to claim that if he made similar remarks to Biden's "barn" comments, people would say "our president is inciting evil."
Back in 2016, Biden suggested that he would like to fight Trump "behind the gym" over the Republican's attitude to women.
"If I were in high school," Biden said. "I want to make it clear I understand what assault is. I'm not in high school. If I were in high school."
Later, in 2018, Biden suggested that he would fight President Trump again. Biden suggested that he would "beat the hell out of" the president if they were in high school together.
"When a guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, 'I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it' and then said, 'I made a mistake,'" Biden told students at the University of Miami. "They asked me would I like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, 'If we were in high school, I'd take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'"
