President Donald Trump goes by the strategy that when someone hits him, he will hit back 10 times harder.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that after former Vice President Joe Biden described how he would have fought Trump back in his high school days, Trump tweeted that “Crazy Joe Biden” was weak. Trump was responding to a speech Biden gave.

“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,’ ” Biden said during a speech at the University of Miami on Tuesday, according to ABC News. “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.’ ”

Biden, who served as vice president under Barack Obama, has not said whether he wants to take on Trump in 2020, although some polls have penciled him in as a front-runner. Either way, the race is unlikely to include physical combat.
