“He could no more get the nomination of the Republican Party than I could get the nomination. I’m not joking,” the vice president asserted Tuesday at a press conference in Dubai.

He based his criticism on the GOP’s “movement to the extreme,” referring to Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s proposal to waterboard and “indiscriminately carpet bomb” enemies and noting that such measures would be considered “war crimes.”
