Trump: I was actually sticking up for Sleepy Joe Biden

President Trump defended himself from allegations he sided with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un over former Vice President Joe 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?” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.
Trump tweeted about recent North Korean missile launches while visiting Japan on May 25 and took the chance to relay Kim’s thoughts on Biden, saying that the North Korean leader considered Biden a “low IQ individual.” Trump has used the phrase in the past to insult Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and actor Robert De Niro.
Biden’s 2020 campaign responded to Trump on Tuesday.
“To be on foreign soil, on Memorial Day, and to side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow American and former vice president speaks for itself,” deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement. “And it’s part of a pattern of embracing autocrats at the expense of our institutions — whether taking Putin’s word at face value in Helsinki or exchanging ‘love letters’ with Kim Jong Un.”
Reps. Peter King, R-N.Y., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., both criticized Trump over his initial tweet
