Joe Biden: I would have 'beat the hell out of [Donald Trump]'

Ex-Vice President speaks at University of Miami

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would have "beat the hell out of [President Donald Trump]" if the two had attended high school together. 

Biden made the remarks while speaking to a crowd at the University of Miami. The entire speech was posted to Facebook by the University of Miami's College Democrats.

"A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, 'I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'" Biden said. "I've been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life. I'm a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."

Mentioning locker rooms, Biden was referring to Trump's apology statement in 2016 where he claimed a vulgar conversation from 2005  between him and former Today co-host Billy Bush was "locker-room banter."

This isn't the first time Biden has made comments like this. 

In 2016, Biden said via USA Today, "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."

He went onto say, "What he said he did and does is the textbook definition of sexual assault. And think about this: It's more than that. He said that, 'Because I'm famous, because I'm a star, because I'm a billionaire, I can do things other people can't.' What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make."

Biden was at the University of Miami to help promote the university's "It's on Us" rally, an event meant to remind students that they are responsible for creating an environment where sexual assault and gender-based violence are unacceptable.
