“I think right now, it will be ‘Sleepy Joe,’” Trump told reporters, invoking a mocking nickname he has used for the former vice president. “I feel he’ll limp across the line.”
“So, what I think doesn’t mean anything, but I know the other people, I know him. I think he’s off his game by a lot, but personally, I think it’s going to be ‘Sleepy Joe,’” he added.

Last month, Trump also said he would watch the first set of debates while traveling to Japan for the Group of 20 summit, despite calling it a “very unexacting group of people.”
“Everyone said I’ll be tweeting. I’ll actually be in a plane, and it just seems very boring, but I’m going to watch it because I have to,” Trump said.
