President Donald Trump fired back at former Vice President Joe Biden early Thursday morning, after Biden made comments this week that he would “beat the hell out” of the President if they had gone to school together.

“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Biden said at an anti-sexual assault rally at the University of Miami on Tuesday. “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.'”

“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden said. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. [son of a bit*h] in the room.”

The President on Thursday morning called Biden “crazy” and warned him to not to “threaten people”

“Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy,” Trump tweeted. “Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people, Joe!”

This is not the first time Biden has gone after Trump in this way, making comments that insinuate he would physically harm Trump.

In 2016, Biden, while campaigning for Hillary Clinton, said: “The press always ask me, ‘Don’t I wish I were debating him?’ No, I wish we were in high school – I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”
