'We have great internal polling': Trump bristles at report he's trailing Biden

Trump, Biden take aim at each other during duelling visits to Iowa

Democrats are beginning to question whether former Vice President Joe Biden is too old to be president, Politico is reporting. Biden quickly retorted that the president is "literally an existential threat to this country".

The back-and-forth laid bare the rising political stakes for each, even with Election Day 2020 still about 17 months away. After leaving office, he helped lead the Biden Cancer initiative at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mr Biden is campaigning again in Iowa on Wednesday, this time without Mr Trump in the state.

"I heard Biden who is a loser".

Speaking in Iowa, a state that is now populated entirely by Democrat presidential candidates, Biden said that Trump was literally an existential threat to America meaning that America would literally cease to exist if Trump continued to be president, which would make it hard for Americans to find a place to park although it would be a lot easier for them to swim to France.

"People don't respect him", Trump said of Biden after touring a renewable energy facility in Council Bluffs.

Mr Biden began the day Tuesday in Ottumwa, the heart of Wapello County, a meat-packing and agricultural manufacturing centre that Mr Trump was the first Republican to carry since Dwight D. Eisenhower.

David Axelrod, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, noted Biden would be eight years older than the oldest president ever to take office - Donald Trump.

The former vice-president hit Trump on the economy - an issue the president often promotes as his chief strength in a time of low unemployment. "However, I hope Trump's presence right here will be a clarifying occasion", Biden will say during a night speech in Davenport, based on quick remarks. He thinks that being tough is great, well it's really easy to be tough when someone else absorbs the pain: "farmers, manufacturers, the automobile industry", Biden said. Mexico countered that no secret deal was in the works.
