In his first post-convention interview, Vice President Joe Biden said, “I don’t like Donald Trump, I think he’s a con artist, and I think that he’s a phony, and I don’t think he’s been with the American people in a long time.”
And moderator Elaine Quijano tried to follow up.
“He called you a loser,” Quijano said.
“‘You mean the man who ran against George W. Bush?’” Biden answered, referencing the 2008 Republican primaries.
“Well, it’s true,” Biden then explained. “Look, in that—in that campaign — ‘you’re a loser’—first of all, we all, you know, lost in the election. And if Donald Trump says anything to me, in all sincerity, I will not be among those he talks about. I will not.”
And with that, the vice president finished the interview with Quijano on her Face the Nation Sunday morning show.
Below, in which Quijano tries to get the vice president to talk more about Mr. Trump’s campaign and his thoughts on the president’s address last week.
