Donald Trump rips into Joe Biden, calls him 'weak' and claims Obama took him off a 'trash heap'
On Saturday night, Jeanine Pirro hosted her Fox News show “Justice With Judge Jeanine.” During the segment, she had a phone interview with President Donald Trump.
Apart from speaking about the burning issue of the border wall the host also asked Trump what he thought of a potential challenge from the former vice president Joe Biden for the 2020 presidential race.
Joe Biden served as a senator before becoming vice president for President Barack Obama. He is also one of the many Democrats who are interested in running for president in 2020.

The current president told Pirro he wasn’t threatened by the former vice president because he is “weak.” Trump mocked Biden calling him a "1-percenter.”

The president explained:
"He ran two or three times, he never got above 1%. And then, Obama came along and took him off the trash heap, and he became the vice president."
Trump also weighed in on other potential challengers in the 2020 presidential race.
Just because someone doesn`t call people vile names and use filthy language, that doesn`t mean that that are weak.------------ They are the stronger ones.— Florence Delgado (@flojoe844) January 14, 2019
Last December, during a book tour event at the University of Montana the former vice president said:
"I think I'm the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I've worked on my whole life."

Too bad he can't say that to him in person.
Let's have a pay-per-view Boxing match. Biden vs Trump. #Biden would knock him back into yesterday. Then we could end the gov't shutdown.
Speaking about the partial federal shutdown, Trump admitted that he had “no idea” if a deal could be made with Democrats. Pirro’s conversation with the president lasted for around 20-minutes.
Great interview! These Democrats will push each other so far to the left that reasonable Americans won't even consider their nominee.— Lowcountry Source (@losonews) January 13, 2019
One person who believes Biden will run for president next year is his youngest brother Frank Biden. The Palm Beach County resident stated:
“I think we’re going to run. You can say that ‘Frank thinks his brother’s going to run.’ Now, he could surprise me. But I know the family’s behind him 100 percent.”
Frank shared that his older brother would make a final decision after family members meet “very soon” to discuss the race.
