#TSRPolitics: Now I know it seems like everyone and their mama is trying to run for president on the #Democratic ticket, but early numbers indicate that former vice president #JoeBiden is in front of the pack.
It seems #Trump has no problem if the #Democrats do in fact decide to choose Biden to go against him in the 2020 election. He mentioned this during a news conference today, @yahooreports, but not without throwing shade at Obama’s former right-hand man.
“He’s a different guy,” Trump told reporters. “He looks different than he used to. He acts different than he used to. He’s even slower than he used to be…I’d rather run against Biden rather than anybody — I think he’s the weakest mentally. I like running against people who are weak mentally. I think Joe is the weakest up here. The other ones have much more energy.”
Trump says he thinks Biden is a “loser” who was taken “off the trash heap” by former President Barack Obama.
Trump’s comments came after Biden’s campaign released excerpts of a speech that will denounce Trump’s trade wars with China and Mexico.
“It’s easy to be tough when someone else is feeling the pain,” Biden plans to tell voters in Ottumwa, Iowa. “How many sleepless nights do you think Trump has had over what he’s doing to America’s farmers? Zero.”
Trump believes that Biden’s focus on him suggests his campaign is already “failing.”
“I heard his whole campaign is to hit Trump. When a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, that means he’s in trouble,” Trump said.
He dismissed polls that show Biden leading him in states such as Texas, Michigan and Pennsylvania. He calls them “fake polls.”
Roommates, which candidate do you think has the best chance of defeating Trump in 2020? Let us know!
