Donald Trump is back in campaign mode — on Twitter, at least.

After former Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd at the University of Miami that if he and Trump were in high school together following Trump’s leaked Access Hollywood comments on women, “I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,’” Trump took to his favorite social media medium to respond on Thursday morning:

The “second time” Trump is referring to is that during the 2016 campaign, Biden said he would “take Trump behind the gym” for his comments, adding, “What he said he did and does is the textbook definition of sexual assault.”

Though he has not decided whether he will run for the White House in 2020, polling shows that Biden is currently the top choice for Democrats in New Hampshire, though he would turn 78 years old a few weeks after the election.

There are 957 days until Election Day 2020.

Correction: A previous version of this article misstated the number of days until Election Day 2020.
