President Donald Trump slammed Democratic frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden as “a dummy,” “mentally weak,” and “1% Joe” in Tuesday remarks on the White House’s South Lawn.
Trump made the remarks on the White House lawn just before departing for Iowa, where he and Biden will each hold campaign events over the next few days.
Trump later said he would rather run against Biden than anyone else in the field, continuing, “I think he is the weakest mentally. I like running against people that are weak mentally.”
In Biden’s planned remarks for a Tuesday speech in Iowa, the former vice president directly attacks Trump, calling him “an existential threat.”
