WATCH | The 2016 campaign's violent undertones continued to surface on Tuesday when at a Florida rally, Donald Trump said he'd "love to" fight Vice President Joe Biden. Biden said on Friday that he wished he could "take [Trump] behind the gym" over his comments regarding sexually assaulting women.
WATCH | Here are Biden's comments in context.
You know, he's Mr. Tough Guy. You know when he's Mr. Tough Guy? When he's standing behind a microphone by himself.
This comes on the same day The New York Times released audio from interviews with Trump and biographer Michael D'Antonio. The tapes revealed Trump "loved" fighting as he grew up, and focused heavily on people's status and ability to respond to setbacks.
You're not fighting Syria any more, you're fighting Syria, Russia and Iran, all right?
Meanwhile, Trump implied Hillary Clinton's plan for Syria would "lead to World War III," insisting the United States should "focus on ISIS" instead.
ISIS controls territory in Syria and Obama administration's policy is to force Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to step down. Trump said that was a lesser priority, Reuters reports.
Clinton's campaign decried Trump's comments.
"Once again, he is parroting Putin's talking points," spokesman Jesse Lehrich said in a statement.
