Former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign on Tuesday responded to President Donald Trump siding yet again with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un while bashing Biden.

In a statement, a campaign spokesperson said that Trump’s comments are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

“To be on foreign soil, on Memorial Day, and to side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow American and former Vice President speaks for itself,” the statement reads. “And it’s part of a pattern of embracing autocrats at the expense of our institutions – whether taking Putin’s word at face value in Helsinki or exchanging ‘love letters’ with Kim Jon Un.”

Trump claimed on Saturday that Kim “smiled” while calling Biden a “low IQ individual.”

When asked on Monday if he was supporting a dictator over Biden, the President merely doubled down.

“Well, Kim Jong Un made a statement that Joe Biden is a low-IQ individual. He probably is, based on his record,” he said. “I think I agree with him on that.”
