76-year-old Joe Biden has been called “Sleepy Joe” by the US President on several occasions after Mr. Biden announced his keen to fight for the post of the United States President in high-stakes 2020 Presidential Elections.
Mr. Biden made the comment during an interview to MSNBC’s Mika Brxexinski. When the host asked the former Vice President as to what would be his reply to President Trump “making fun of your age”, to which he replied with the idea of push-up challenge.
Mr. Biden was quoted saying, “Come on Donald. Come on man. How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal? You know, I mean jokingly. You know, come on run with me man.”
He further replied to Democratic voters asking about his capabilities of standing up against Donald Trump, especially when he is not prepared for criticism from Democratic Presidential hopeful, Senator Kamala Harris, during a debate in Miami.
“I realize that some have concluded that because I didn’t respond very tough back to her, how can I take on Trump? I’ve never had any trouble taking on anyone from Trump to Putin to Xi Jinping or anybody else,” replied Mr. Biden.
“I’m used to bullies,” he added.
The Democratic Presidential hopeful also said “I know it will be an ugly campaign. I know it will be not an honorable campaign that he’ll run, but I’m not backing down at all from him.”
