WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump is defending an unlikely target: Joe Biden.
Trump is responding to North Korea calling the former vice president and Democratic candidate a â€œrabid dogâ€ who â€œmust be beaten to death with a stick.â€
Trump says in a tweeted message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that Biden â€œmay be Sleepy and Very Slow,â€ but says, â€œhe is not a â€˜rabid dogâ€™â€ and â€œis actually somewhat better than that.â€
Still, Trump adds he is â€œthe only oneâ€ who can get Kim â€œwhere you have to be,â€ and is urging Kim to â€œact quickly, get the deal done.â€ Heâ€™s also hinting at another meeting, writing, â€œSee you soon!â€
The tweet comes amid an impeachment investigation into Trumpâ€™s push for Ukraine to announce an investigation into Biden and his son, Hunter.
