Trump: Biden Was Involved In Attempt to ‘Take Down the President of the United States’

President Donald Trump has accused former Vice President Joe Biden of involvement in a plot to destroy his presidency. Trump gave a rambling interview to Fox & Friends on Friday where he reiterated unfounded claims of an Obama administration plot against him.

The hosts asked Trump if he’d though of calling Biden to find out what the former VP knew about the supposed plot.

“No I’d rather have it come out in papers,” Trump said. “Why would I call them up? They tried to take down the President of the United States, a sitting duly-elected president of the United States.”

“Before I even won, and this was going on, this was the fake dossier that was totally fake, and I got a little lucky because they couldn’t get the newspapers.”

Trump went on for several minutes on a variety of interrelated subjects before he was asked about Biden and Obama again. Co-host Steve Doocy suggested that any plot to take down his presidency would be the greatest scandal in history.

“It is,” Trump said. “If it were a Republican, if it were reversed and that were a Republican president or that were a let’s say me, that be the ultimate example, but if that were a Republican president , I believe he and Biden – Sleepy Joe was involved in this also, very much, and other people around President Obama were totally involved and you’ll see more and more things come out, I think, because you know, like I know how it works.”
