Former Vice President Joe Biden received a warm Trump welcome to the 2020 presidential race today.

Taking to Twitter, the President wrote, “Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!”

Biden released a video this morning announcing his run for president. Linking to youtube in a Twitter post, the former VP wrote, “The core values of this nation… our standing in the world… our very democracy…everything that has made America — America –is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.”

As the Hill points out, President Trump previously predicted that the Democrat race for the presidential nomination will boil down to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Biden.

On April 16, the president wrote on Twitter, “I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)! I look forward to facing whoever it may be. May God Rest Their Soul!”
