Trump said in a tweet that Biden is “actually somewhat better than that.”
“Mr. Chairman, Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a ‘rabid dog.’ He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon!”

On Friday, North Korea’s KCNA news agency lashed out at Biden, misspelling his name and calling him a “rabid dog,” as IJR has previously reported.
“It was the last-ditch efforts of the rabid dog expediting his death. Rabid dogs like Baiden can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about. They must be beaten to death with a stick before it is too late.”
Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, told The Associated Press that KNCA’s attacks make it “more obvious that repugnant dictators, as well as those who admire and ‘love’ them, find Joe Biden threatening.”
In a statement released by the campaign, Biden said he considers the attack to be a “badge of honor.”
“It seems that murderous dictator Kim Jong Un doesn’t like me. Add him to the list of autocrats who don’t want me to be president — right next to Vladimir Putin. I wear their insults as a badge of honor.”
It’s unclear what Biden said that led to the KCNA’s outburst against him, but it is not the first time he has been targeted by North Korea. In May, North Korea called Biden an “imbecile” after he criticized the country’s leader.
