Trump has railed against Biden in a number of tweets and comments, calling him “Sleepy Joe” among other insults.
First, Biden said he was “used to bullies,” before answering another question and coming up with the push-up contest idea.
“I’d say, ‘come on Donald, come on man. How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal?’” the former vice president told Mike Brzezinski. “I mean, jokingly, you know, come on, run with me, man.”
Biden and Trump have a history of going back-and-forth with each other when it comes to physicality.
Last year, the former vice president said he would “beat the hell out of” Trump if they were in high school if he heard about the remarks he’s made about women, including the Access Hollywood tape.
In response, Trump said Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way” in such a fight.
Biden is ahead in most polls in the early stages of the 2020 Democratic primary.
