President Trump escalated his war of words with “Crazy Joe Biden” Thursday, after the former Vice President threatened to “beat the hell” out of the Commander-in-Chief during a recent speech.
“If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,” said Biden during an appearance this week; referring to Trump as the “ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
The President struck back on social media early Thursday morning, saying the former Vice President was “trying to act like a tough guy” but is “weak both mentally and physically.”
“Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s comments come as leading Democrats urge Biden to throw his hat in the ring for a possible 2020 presidential bid; hoping the moderate Democrat can appeal to voters in pivotal, rust-belt swing states.
KNIVES OUT: Hillary Blasts Joe Biden in New Book
Another excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir surfaced on social media Wednesday, showing the doomed Presidential nominee lashing-out at Joe Biden; blasting the former Vice President for saying her campaign didn’t focus on the middle class.
Clinton set her sights on Biden for his harsh criticism of her campaign in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, saying she lacked a central economic message that appealed to the American middle class.
“Joe Biden said the Democratic Party in 2016 ‘did not talk about what it always stood for — and that was how to maintain a burgeoning middle class,'” Clinton writes.
“I find this fairly remarkable, considering that Joe himself campaigned for me all over the Midwest and talked plenty about the middle class,” she adds.
Earlier this year, Biden slammed Clinton for her lackluster campaign, asking, “How much did we hear about that guy making 50,000 bucks on an assembly line, the woman […] making $28,000 as a hostess?”
Biden isn’t the only prominent democrat attacked by Clinton. Other excerpts from “What Happened” show the former Secretary of State lashing-out at Sen. Bernie Sanders, calling his supporters “sexist” and claiming he helped “pave the way” for Trump’s surprise victory.

UNDER THE BUS: Biden REFUSES to Say if Hillary was a GOOD CANDIDATE
Former Vice President Joe Biden deflected questions surrounding Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the White House on Thursday, refusing to answer when pressed on whether she would have won the presidency had she been a “better candidate.”
Biden was speaking with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell when she asked the former VP to weigh-in on Clinton’s continued allegations that former FBI director James Comey cost her the Oval Office when he suddenly re-opened her email probe just weeks before Election Day.
“There’s no doubt that it had to hurt her. There’s no way it could’ve helped her. Whether that was enough to make the 72,000 vote difference in the key states, it remains to be seen. Let me put it this way, it sure didn’t help,” said Biden.
“Would she have won if she were a better candidate?” pressed Mitchell.
“Look, I think what happened was something we’ve never seen in American politics,” deflected Biden. “Only 4% of all the chatter and all the news about Hillary Clinton had to do with the issues.”
“She was never able to get to the subject matter. For example, what are we going to about middle-class families?” he added.
