Former vice president Joe Biden attended the University of Miami for a speech on Tuesday, part of his nationwide anti-sexual assault campaign "It's On Us." And in reference to the 2005 Access Hollywood tape, in which Donald Trump seemingly bragged about sexual assault, Biden had the following to say:
"A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, 'I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it. They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, 'If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'"
And on Wednesday, Biden went all in, adding:
"I've been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life. I'm a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy who talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."
"Did you see where Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn? Me! I'd love that. I'd love that. Mr. Tough Guy. You know, he's Mr Tough Guy. You know when he's Mr. Tough Guy? When he's standing behind a microphone by himself."
Now, it seems almost certain. Why? After Biden repeated the remarks, now-President Donald Trump took to Twitter saying: "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!"

You can probably see why people think there's going to be a cage match. It is worth mentioning that while Donald Trump took part in WrestleMania 23, Bob Arum, Hall of Fame promoter of Muhammad Ali and Manny Pacquiao, didn't fancy his chances against Hillary Clinton.
Unsurprisingly, people had mixed reactions to the latest drama. One user referenced the start of First Lady Melania Trump's campaign against cyberbullying.
Two days ago, Melania Trump launched her cyber bullying campaign, and this morning, her husband cyber bullied Joe Biden.— Roland Scahill (@rolandscahill) March 22, 2018
Others just can't seem to believe how far we've come.
I don't care about Trump fighting against Biden.— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) March 22, 2018
I care about Republicans fighting against government spending.
If Biden was cool he'd do Wrestlemania with Trump and settle this Dem vs Rep thing once and for all BROTHERRRRRRRRR!!! WOO!!— 🌩call me by your stormy🌩 (@speakerfont1) March 22, 2018
The president of the United States who once threatened to punch a civilian protestor at one of his rallies in the face, wants to lecture Joe Biden about not threatening people.— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) March 22, 2018
Why would ANYONE respond to anything Joe Biden has to say, let alone the President. Biden is a clown whose mouth overflows with foolishness.— Shirley Kwiatek (@sakwiatek) March 22, 2018
Biden and Trump threatening to beat each other up is just every 5th grader’s “my dad could beat up your dad” argument come to life— nik (@nikineez) March 22, 2018
So Biden threatened Trump. Then Trump said he’s weak and he’d make him cry?— CA (@jabuszn) March 22, 2018
