President Trump recently took time to welcome former Vice President Joe Biden to the 2020 presidential election.
On Twitter Thursday, the president said “welcome to the race Sleepy Joe.” He then warned “it will be nasty” in reference to the people he will be dealing with.
The president then said, “I will see you at the starting gate!”
Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!
