Trump earned scorn from an array of Americans ― ― for the barb he directed while in Japan at the former vice president who recently launched a White House bid. After Trump was accused of siding with the enemy, he took to Twitter to claim that he actually toned down the words of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il and, in the process, was being kind to Biden:
I was actually sticking up for Sleepy Joe Biden while on foreign soil. Kim Jong Un called him a “low IQ idiot,” and many other things, whereas I related the quote of Chairman Kim as a much softer “low IQ individual.” Who could possibly be upset with that?
