“When I am commander in chief, our adversaries will know that America doesn’t embrace dictators,” Biden said. “All Trump has accomplished is emboldening Kim and endangering our allies.”
“Kim would love to see Trump reelected, as would the rest of America’s adversaries. That’s just one more reason it’s so important we beat him next November,” he added.
A KCNA commentary on Friday went after Biden over his age, saying that the “time has come for him to depart his life,” according to Reuters.
“It was the last-ditch efforts of the rabid dog expediting his death,” the commentary said. “Rabid dogs like Biden [sic] can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about. They must be beaten to death with a stick, before it is too late.”
The KCNA commentary reportedly did not reference any specific comments by Biden, who has previously criticized Trump’s actions toward North Korea.
Biden’s campaign was among those that had criticized President Trump’s meeting this summer with Kim.
“President Trump’s coddling of dictators at the expense of American national security and interests is one of the most dangerous ways he’s diminishing us on the world stage and subverting our values as a nation,” Biden spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement in June.
