President Donald Trump told the crowd at his rally in Minnesota that he would do “very well” in a boxing match with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
Trump had ben ranting about how he quashed the increasingly intense rhetoric with North Korea after ratcheting things up to the brink of a nuclear war.
He then complimented his performance in a summit with Putin, where he sided with the Russian dictator over American intelligence.
“So they want me to get into a boxing match with [Putin],” Trump said. “I think I’d do very well.”
While Trump has experience as a fake wrestler working for World Wrestling Entertainment, Vladimir Putin is a former intelligence officer with extensive combat training and an eighth-degree black belt in judo.
Trump does have a substantial size advantage, standing nearly a foot taller than the 5-foot six-inch Putin.
