President Donald Trump lobbed playground insults at Joe Biden in an unabashed political speech from the White House on Monday, calling the Democratic nominee “stupid” and berating his son.
Speaking behind a podium on the White House North Portico, Trump briefly mentioned Labor Day and dedicated most of his freewheeling, nearly hourlong remarks to harsh partisan attacks.
“Biden is a stupid person, you know that,” Trump told assembled reporters. “You’re not going to write it, but you know that.”
The president also brought up his long-debunked corruption accusations against Biden’s son over his work for a Ukrainian energy company.
