Joe Biden Regrets Talking About a Fight With Trump: ‘I Shouldn’t Have Said What I Said’

Former Vice President Joe Biden regrets talking recently about fighting President Donald Trump.

Last week, Biden again said in high school he would’ve “beat the hell out” of Trump for his disrespect of women. Trump responded in a tweet that said, “He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way.”

On a Pod Save America interview today––recorded last week––the former VP said, “I shouldn’t have said what I said. I shouldn’t have bought it up again, because I don’t want to get down in the mosh pit with this guy.”

“The idea that I would actually physically get in a contest with the President of the United States or anybody else,” he continued, “now is not what I said and is not what this is about. But I should have just left this alone.”

Biden did go on to say that men do have an obligation to speak up when they see someone being derogatory about women.
