Donald Trump has responded to Joe Biden’s remarks that he would like to “take him behind the gym,” with the GOP presidential candidate saying he would “love that.”
“Did you see where Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn? I’d love that. I’d love that! Mr. Tough Guy,” he said during a rally in Florida on Tuesday, according to Mediaite. “You know, he’s Mr. Tough Guy. You know when he’s Mr. Tough Guy? When he’s standing behind a microphone by himself.”
Trump added, “If I said that, they’d say, ‘he’s violent, how could he have done that?'”
A few days ago, the vice president brought up Trump’s leaked “Access Hollywood” video, in which the GOP nominee brags about groping women and being able to do so because of his celebrity status.
“The press always asks me don’t I wish I were debating him,” he had said. “No, I wish we were in high school and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”

In the last few weeks, Trump has been accused by several women of sexual assault, all of which he has denied. On Wednesday morning, his Hollywood Walk of Fame star was destroyed by a sledgehammer.
Deadline posted video of the incident, and reported the man identified himself as Jamie Otis, who said he was hoping to remove the star and auction it off to raise money for the women who have publicly accused the GOP presidential candidate of sexual misconduct.
