Donald Trump is hitting back after Vice President Joe Biden said last week he'd like to take the Republican presidential nominee "behind the gym," suggesting he wants to beat him up.
"Did you see where Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn — me," Trump said. "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 — that's when. He wants to bring me to the back of the barn."

"Some things in life you could really love doing," he continued. "And, by the way, if I said that, they'd say, 'He's violent. How could he have done that?'"
Biden, campaigning at the time for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, made the initial suggestion in response to recent allegations from multiple women who claim to be victims of Trump's unwanted sexual advances.
"What he said he did and does is a textbook definition of sexual assault … [Trump] said, ‘Because I’m famous, because I’m a star, because I’m a billionaire, I can do things other people can’t," the vice president said. "What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make!"
