President Donald Trump responded to former Vice President Joe Biden's recent pronouncement that he would have "beat the hell out of" Trump for his crude remarks about women, tweeting that Biden is "weak," "crazy," and would go down in a fight "crying all the way."

Biden on Tuesday referenced his remarks from 2016, when he famously commented he would have liked to take Trump "behind the gym" in high school after the release of the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape, in which Trump boasted about groping and kissing women whenever he felt.

"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," Biden said. "I said, ‘If we were in high school, I'd take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'"

Trump wrote "Crazy Joe Biden" shouldn't "threaten people."

"Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. 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!" he wrote.

Biden, who mulled running for president in 2016 before electing not to, is a possible contender in 2020 who Democrats see as a means of winning back blue-collar whites Trump swung to the Republican column.
