President Trump said Tuesday that he believes "sleepy Joe" Biden will be the Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, just hours before the second round of Democratic primary debates.
"I think right now, look, I think it's right now it's going to be a sleepy Joe, in my opinion," Trump said of the White House lawn on Tuesday. "I feel he will cross the line, so what I think does not mean anything, but I know other people, I know him." He added, "I think he quit his game a lot, but I think it will be Sleepy Joe personally."
Trump's comments came as former Vice President Biden enjoyed an apparent rebound in recent polls.
Trump had been insulting Biden for months, calling him a "weak psychic" and repeatedly saying he hoped he would be nominated.
THE TRUMP OF LEADING STRAW AS AN EXISTING DANGER
Last month, Trump called Biden a loser and a dummy.
But Biden didn't hold back.
"This is a person who does everything to divide and scare people," Biden said in a speech last month.

Trump is also aiming for Biden's age, saying he "looks different than before" and is "even slower than before."
Trump, 73, said he would "easily" beat Biden in 2020. Biden is 76, but he is not the oldest in the overcrowded Democratic primary. Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Is 77.
