Transcript for Trump, Anita Hill take aim at Biden in 2020 bid
We move to the race for the for now Joe Biden, the democratic front-runner, after attending his first fund-raiser overnight taking his first shot from president trump and getting a taste of the challenges ahead from Anita hill. Terry Moran at the white house with the latest. Good morning, Terry. Reporter: Good morning. President trump has a busy day and will address the NRA in Indianapolis and have the Japanese prime minister here but he's got his eye on politics and even after just one day Joe Biden right in the thick of the fight in this campaign. Joe Biden closed out his first day as a presidential candidate with a fund-raiser in Philadelphia. We really have to restore -- we have to start choosing truth over lies, hope over fear. Reporter: And while he didn't mention president trump by name, he made his focus clear. I'm hoping that in a couple of years we'll look back and say whether it's me or anybody else replacing him that this is an aberration in American history. Reporter: In an interview with Fox News the president took aim at Biden. He's not the brightest lightbulb in the group, I don't think, but he has a name that they know. Reporter: So far Biden isn't swinging back. Do you have a presidentage for president trump. He welcomed you in the race. Questioned whether you have the intelligence to be the president of the United States. Everybody knows Donald Trump. Reporter: The Biden campaign is facing another hurdle, his long track record in the senate. The campaign revealed Thursday that Biden spoke with Anita hill expressing regret for what she endured as senate judiciary committee chairman a 48-year-old Biden ran the hearings for Clarence Thomas. Can you tell the committee what was the most embarrassing of all the incidences that you have alleged? Reporter: Anita hill famously testified that Thomas had harassed her. In turn many feel she was eviscerated by lawmakers and hill says after that conversation, she is not convinced that he accepts the harm she says he caused her. I cannot be satisfied by simply saying I'm sorry for what happened to you. I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose. The Biden campaign responds gently saying over the decades Joe Biden has tried to change bringing women onto the judiciary committee and sponsoring the violence against women act but this is one example of what he will face with that long track record in the senate, George. One example. Also heard from president Obama. Lots of praise for his former vice president but he's not ready to put his thumb on the scale in this democratic primary race. Reporter: He's not. No endorsement from president Obama. That is kind of a presidential tradition. They keep above the fight in order to save their political capital for the general election but at the end of the day Joe Biden has said that he asked president Obama not to endorse him and that he wants to win this on the merits, George. Okay, thanks very much. Joe Biden will be live on "The view" today then robin has an exclusive interview with Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden that will air on "Gma" on Tuesday.
