Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday attempted to highlight his combative spirit, telling Kenosha, Wisconsin, residents during a community event no matter what happens in his run for the White House, they can be assured he will go down fighting.

A seemingly confused Biden later contradicted his own advice by denying the prospect of defeat. The exchange(s) went like this:

BIDEN: “I really am optimistic. I promise you, win or lose, I’m gonna go down fighting.”

Then the prospect was broached again:

MODERATOR: “We’ll go down fighting with you.”

BIDEN: “We’re not gonna go down.”

MODERATOR: “We’re definitely not going down.”

Biden spent Thursday in Wisconsin, two days after President Donald Trump traveled to Kenosha, as Breitbart News reported.

The community event he attended was called to address the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.
