Former president of the United States, Donald Trump, has boasted that he would like to beat up the country’s current president, Joe Biden, in a boxing match. Trump, 75, fantasized about the chances of beating his rival during a promotional event for a boxing fight between two pugilists past their prime, Evander Holyfield, 58, and Vitor Belfort, 44.
Speaking through telephone, Trump said: “Well if I had to pick somebody in the world, not only a professional boxer because I’ll take a pass on the professional boxers – that can be a very dangerous subject. I think probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden because I think he’d go down very, very quickly.”
Trump who was beaten in the November 2020 US Presidential elections by Biden, believes that “Biden would go down in the first few seconds.” The Republican’s comments is in some ways, a reply to Biden’s threatening remarks three years ago that he would “beat the hell out of” Trump.
It will be recalled that Biden in 2018, told College Democrats at the University of Miami, that he would prefer to fight Trump instead of a debate.
“When a guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it…they asked me, would I 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’s remarks were in connection to the infamous Access Hollywood Tape which Trump was recorded while bragging that he could “grab [women] by the p****” and get away with it because he was “a star.” The audio almost ruined Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, but he dismissed it as a “locker room talk,” and went on to win the election one month later.
During the promotional event, Trump did not fail to recount Biden’s comments and stated that the US President would be in “big trouble if he ever did.”
“You know, he once said, ‘Oh, I’d like to take him behind the barn. He’d be in big trouble if he ever did.”
