On Joe Biden, who is just four years older than Trump: “I am a young vibrant man.”

He falsely claimed his “both sides” remarks were describing only people who were in Charlottesville to support or oppose the monument to treasonous Civil War general Robert E. Lee, who waged war against the United States.
