President Donald Trump continued criticizing former Vice President Joe Biden during his trip to Japan, despite widespread criticism from American media.
“Well, Kim Jong Un made a statement that Joe Biden is a low-IQ individual. He probably is, based on his record,” Trump replied. “I think I agree with him on that.”
Trump commented on Biden during a press conference with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday.
In a follow-up question, Mason asked Trump if he concerned about the reaction to the comment, as critics accused the president siding with a dictator over a former vice president of the United States.
“I don’t take sides as to who I’m in favor or who I’m not, but I can tell you that Joe Biden was a disaster,” Trump replied. “His administration, with President Obama, they were basically a disaster when it came to so many things, whether it was economy, whether it was military, defense. No matter what it was, they had a lot problems. So, I’m not a fan.”
