Donald Trump Jr. expressed doubt that a man who cannot take a punch in boxing could “strike fear in the minds of our adversaries,” referring to a video which shows Sanders working with a speed bag.
This wouldn’t exactly strike fear in the minds of our adversaries. Imagine this guy sitting accross the table negotiating with world leaders? pic.twitter.com/FdErYWwAyo— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) August 28, 2019
The 'duel' took place at the Muhammad Ali Center in Kentucky, where Sanders had an interview with Vice News.
