TALLAHASSEE — Donald Trump responded Tuesday to Vice President Biden’s remark that he would like to “take him behind the gym” if they were in high school, saying he would welcome such a confrontation.
“He wants to bring me to the back of the barn. Ohhhhhh,” Trump said with mock fear, botching Biden’s quote. “Some things in life you can really love doing.”
At a recent campaign stop for Hillary Clinton, Biden strongly criticized Trump’s recently revealed remarks on a 2005 hot microphone, in which he bragged about forcing himself on women sexually.
“What he said he did and does is a textbook definition of sexual assault,” said Biden.
The vice president said reporters routinely ask him whether he wishes he had the chance to debate Trump.
“No, I wish we were in high school. I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” said Biden.
