A heated Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd Friday that he would challenge Donald Trump to a fight if they were still in high school.

While campaigning for Hillary Clinton at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, Mr. Biden said the press was “always” asking him whether he would like to debate the Republican presidential nominee.

“No, I wish we were in high school — I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” the 73-year-old said to roaring applause.

Mr. Biden was talking about the sexual misconduct allegations against Mr. Trump by several women, who came forward after a leaked 2005 recording revealed the business mogul boasting on a hot mic about using his celebrity status to get away with groping women.

“What he did and does is the textbook definition of sexual assault,” Mr. Biden told the crowd. “But it’s more than that. He said, ‘Because I’m famous, because I’m a star, because I’m a millionaire, I can do things other people can’t.’ What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make.”
