WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS) — Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign fired back at President Trump for agreeing with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Monday that Biden was a “low I.Q.” individual.

“The President’s comments are beneath the dignity of the office,” Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement 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.”

Mr. Trump tweeted over the weekend that the North Korean leader had said that Biden had a low IQ. “North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?” the president tweeted Saturday.
