President Donald Trump Monday said has to assume Democrat nominee Joe Biden is a "professional" who knows how to debate, even if he doesn't know if the former vice president is "all there."
"He doesn't seem to be answering questions, and he can't answer questions," the president said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "He did much worse a little while ago when he was on the stage with the Democrats, he couldn't do well. He did OK with Bernie [Sanders]. It was sort of a tie. It was nothing great. I always say it was Winston Churchill, but it was OK."
But with other Democrats, Biden was "horrible," and Sen. Elizabeth Warren "just destroyed him."
"And Kamala, as we call her Kamala, like a comma, she said, like a comma, she was so horrible to him," Trump said, referring to Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. "What she said to him was terrible. I watched that and I'm shocked that he picked her because he was so treated so badly by Kamala, and then he picked her."
Still, Trump said he has to assume Biden will "do great" in the upcoming debates with him because he's been "47 years in the public service."
"I've done more in 47 months than he's done in 47 years, and that's absolutely true," Trump added. "He complains, 'oh, we should have done this, we should have done that.' It wasn't like he left 25 years ago. Three and a half years ago he was there, and why hasn't he done the same things that I've been doing?"
He also accused Biden of having "plagiarized" the White House pandemic response.
"He comes out with a report, it's everything that we've done," said Trump. "We're working with the great generals and admirals and doctors and everything. But what we're doing is the same things that he said we should be doing, and we are rounding the turn."
