Trump says Clinton was tougher opponent than Biden would be

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he’d rather run for re-election against former Vice President Joe Biden than his 2016 foe, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In an exclusive interview with "Meet the Press," Trump praised Clinton as a “very tough” opponent compared to Biden, the current Democratic front-runner in the 2020 race.

“Hillary Clinton was a great candidate. She was very smart. She was very tough. She was ruthless and vicious,” Trump said in the interview, which was taped on Friday.

“I would actually rather run against Biden.”

“Sleepy Joe. He's sleepy. She was not sleepy,” he added, echoing his nickname for Biden.

4. That's why prior reports he was afraid of running against Biden are irrelevant

 

First it was leaked he was afraid, he probably leaked that himself. Now he says he isn't. His real purpose is to confuse everybody. So ignore it.

9. He has no basis for knowing anything

 

His strategy is to hold huge hate rallies and belittle his opponent. it won't be different regardless of the candidate.

It isn't like he is going to change policy positions based on the perceived weakness of a rival.

5. Chump is a schoolyard bully who plays mind games hoping to emasculate Biden.

 

Always understand he means the opposite of what he says.

6. He does play mind games, but it's not a simple game of opposites.

 

He is neither afraid or unafraid of Biden. He simply wants people to be confused and argue about non-issues. His real or imagined fears are irrelevant - ignore them.

7. This is one of those rare instances where Trump is telling the truth because

 

he wants us to think that he means the opposite. He knows that nobody believes a word out of his mouth, so whenever he says Biden would be easy, he thinks we'll assume he's lying through his teeth. Trump really does know that Biden would be way easier to handle than Hillary was, but he's hoping that we think he's just lying again.

10. It was just a few years ago that he claimed

 

She was frail and not physically up to the job. His surrogates claimed she'd had a stroke, or she was dying.

Net net: they will say anything about anyone and too few who have any power holds him to account
