President Trump ripped Joe Biden in newly aired interview comments, saying running against the ex-vice president in 2020 would be a “dream” and claiming former President Barack Obama “took him out of the garbage heap” in 2008.
“Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That’s a dream,” Trump said in an interview with CBS News, when asked about a Biden bid. “Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than one percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I’d love to have it be Biden.”
Obama picked the veteran senator as his running mate in 2008. After serving two terms as VP, Biden was widely floated as a possible Democratic 2016 presidential candidate before he eventually ruled it out.
Biden, 75, has since said he is considering a possible run for the 2020 nomination. On Tuesday, he said at a forum in Bogota, Colombia that he had set himself a deadline of January to make a decision.
President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Friday that he thinks former Vice President Joe Biden is “dumb” when asked about comments he made earlier in the day calling Biden a “mentally deficient idiot.”
Asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo if he thought Biden was stupid, Giuliani said no — but with a caveat.
“In that category, I think he is,” Giuliani said, discussing Biden’s school record. “I think that explains the plagiarism. I think the plagiarism is very serious. I don’t think he’ll ever get beyond that.”- READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/07/19/trump-says-dreams-about-biden-running-again-obama-took-him-out-garbage-heap.html” target=”_blank”]
