"If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him," Biden said. Not stopping there, the former vice president continued to insult the commander in chief, comparing Trump to the "fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."

In a tweet on March 22, Donald Trump responded to Joe Biden with a warning and threat of his own.

"Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy," Trump tweeted. "Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault," he added.

In addition, Donald Trump gave a prediction about what would happen if the two men ever got into a fight. "He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way," Trump said, before adding, "Don’t threaten people Joe!"
