Former RNC chair Michael Steele mocked President Donald Trump’s attempts to convince people he’s not worried about Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy, in a Thursday MSNBC appearance.
“You’re going to get a lot of breast-beating and ugly tweets from the president, as we saw from the president this morning and which belies the fact he’s concerned,” said Steele.
“Joe, in my estimation of the candidates at the table at the moment, is the best prepared to actually go after Trump in a mature, sophisticated way without having to get in the gutter,” Steele said.
“The president responded to that immediately, and that should tell you everything that’s ahead for this president in terms of having to deal with a Joe Biden versus many of the others in the campaign,” he added.
