Former Vice President Joe Biden hit back at President Trump on Wednesday during a stump speech in Nevada, vowing that the commander in chief is “not going to destroy me.”
“Let me make something clear to Trump and his hatchet men and the special interests funding his attacks against me,” Biden said in Reno. “I’m not going anywhere. You’re not going to destroy me. And you’re not going to destroy my family. I don’t care how much money you spend or how dirty the attacks get."

Biden went on to claim that Trump’s recent attacks against him were because he’s afraid of losing to him.
“He did it because, like every bully in history—he’s afraid. He’s afraid of just how badly I would beat him next November,” Biden said, referring to the phone call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky in which Democrats allege he pressed the Ukrainian leader to investigate the Biden family.

The shots came after Trump referred to Biden and his son, Hunter, as “stone-cold crooked," earlier in the day.

“His son walks out with millions of dollars. And the kid knows nothing," Trump said, referring to Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine and China.
