Former Vice President Joe Biden jokingly challenged President Trump to a fitness competition this week; saying he’d ask the Commander-in-Chief “how many push-ups do you want to do?”
“I would say, come on Donald, come on, man. How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal? I mean jokingly,” Biden said.
“You know, come on, run with me, man. it’s like I was in a parade in Independence, Missouri. And I always run in parades… and a fellow from Independence who was a Trump supporter said, ‘hey sleepy Joe!’ I said, come run with me, Jack. Come on man!” he added.
“I’m not going to get down in the dirt with him,” said the former Vice President. “That’s the only place he knows how to fight. I’m just going to continue to talk about what he’s doing — why it’s so damaging to America and as my mother would say, I’m not going to take any guff from him”
Biden touted the accomplishments of Obamacare this week; unveiling his new healthcare plan while promising Americans can “keep their private insurance” should they choose to.
Biden promoted his new plan online Monday; breaking with fellow Democrats like Bernie Sanders who seek to ban private health insurance options for every single American.
The Affordable Care Act was a historic achievement. 20 million Americans gained coverage. Over 100 million with pre-existing conditions finally got protection. We can’t tear it down.

“I give people the option,” Biden said. “If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it.”

“You get full coverage, and you can stay with your plan if you like it. You can stay with your employer-based plan, or you can move on. I think it’s the quickest, most reasonable, rational and best way to get to universal coverage,” he added.
“I understand the appeal of Medicare for All, but folks supporting it should be clear that it means getting rid of ObamaCare, and I’m not for that,” Biden concluded.
