What Prompted Trump to Say He Can Now Be 'Really Vicious' Against Biden

With less than two months until Election Day, the gloves are off for President Trump. During a rally in Nevada Saturday night, he explained why he was ready to â€œbe really viciousâ€ toward Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
â€œPathetic Joe. Heâ€™s a pathetic human being to allow that to happen,â€ Trump said of the ad the Biden campaign released last week that used The Atlanticâ€™s story alleging he disparaged Americaâ€™s fallen soldiers in France.
â€œBut you know the good part?â€ Trump continued. â€œNow I can be really vicious. Once I saw that ad, I donâ€™t have to be nice anymore.â€
The president pointed to the more than 20 witnesses who have gone on record saying The Atlantic story, which alleges Trump called dead soldiers â€œsuckersâ€ and â€œlosers,â€ is false.
â€œThereâ€™s nobody who loves our military, respects them more than me,â€ Trump said. â€œTheyâ€™re a disgrace.â€
Last week, the Trump campaign sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Biden campaign over the ad for it being â€œfalse and misleading.â€
