President Donald Trump asked UFC’s Dana White to assess Joe Biden’s fighter potential

We are one week away from finding out who will be the 46th President of the United States, and things are starting to get a bit spicier between the current Commander in Chief, Donald Trump, and former Vice President, Joe Biden, who is looking to take the billionaire politician out of office on Nov. 3, 2020.

While the two have gone back-and-forth at each other over the media, rallies and a pair of hilarious nationally-televised debates, things will obviously never get physical between the two men, no matter how much Biden wanted to go back in time to his “high school days” to take Trump to the back of the gym and give him a good old fashion beatdown.

“The press always ask me, ‘Don’t I wish I were debating him?’ No, I wish we were in high school — I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” Biden said in an interview in 2018.

For whatever reason, Trump decided to bring that up during his most recent rally and revealed that he once got Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President, Dana White, to assess Biden’s skills as a potential fighter ... without ever having seen him fight, of course.

“But Sleepy Joe, I don’t think Sleepy Joe would be a good fighter. I asked Dana before. One gentle little touch to the face and he’s down. He’s down and he wouldn’t get up very quickly either,” said Trump.

“Remember when he said, ‘I’d like to take him to the back of the barn. Okay. Now if I ever said that to him they would say, ‘He practices violence. The President practices violence!’ That’s like, if you have to fight somebody, that’s your dream, fight, right?”

Of course, we are in no way, shape or form promoting any type of physical confrontation between Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, but we are all on pins and needles waiting to see who delivers the knockout blow in a matter of days.
