DONALD TRUMP HAS responded to Joe Biden’s remarks about wanting to ‘take’ him.

On Saturday, at an event for Trump’s presidential rival Hillary Clinton, the US Vice President strongly criticised recently released remarks Trump had made in 2005 about forcing himself on women.

“What he said he did and does is a textbook definition of sexual assault,” Biden said.

He added that he’s often asked if he wants to debate Trump, stating: “No, I wish we were in high school. I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”

On Monday, Biden clarified his comments somewhat, saying: “If I were in high school … I want to make it clear I understand what assault is. I’m not in high school.”

Responding to the remarks at a rally in Tallahassee, Florida yesterday, Trump said: “Our leaders are stupid people.

“They’re stupid people, I’m telling you. Obama, all this guy does is campaign for Hillary – who he can’t stand.

Did you see where Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn? Me? I’d love that. I’d love that, Mr Tough Guy. You know when he’s Mr Tough Guy? When he’s standing behind a microphone by himself. He wants to bring me to the back of the barn? Some things in life you could really love doing.

“…And, by the way, if I said that, they’d say ‘he’s violent, how could he have done that?’”
