Transcript for Trump takes on Biden
what happens. Good morning. Let's get right to our top the new revelations from ABC's exclusive interview with president Donald Trump. And the president going one-on-one with our chief anchor George Stephanopoulos going after former vice president Joe Biden with trump set to announce his re-election campaign Tuesday he is attacking his potential opponent, Biden, as, quote, weak while calling himself ahead in the polls. George conducted an extraordinary and wide-ranging interview even covering what the president has learned in office about ufos so a lot to talk about and we'll start our coverage with ABC's Rachel Scott who is right there at the white house with details on internal polling from the trump campaign which showed the president trailing Joe Biden. Rachel, good morning to you. Reporter: Good morning, Dan. The president's campaign manager is calling that polling data ancient. He says those numbers have since changed to show the president in the lead but president trump still has Biden on the brain. In a long road to the 2020 election, president trump and democratic rival Joe Biden are entangled in a war of words. He wanted to be the tough guy. He's not a tough guy. He's a weak guy. Reporter: And while Biden is just 1 of 23 democratic candidates in the race, president trump has insisted in any match-up he is the clear front-runner. I just had a meeting with somebody that's a pollster and I'm winning everywhere. Reporter: But an internal poll from his own campaign painted a different picture. The March data obtained by ABC news has the president losing to Biden by double digits in the battlestates of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and in Florida where the president will kick off his re-election campaign in a few days Biden led by seven points. The trump campaign argues those numbers have since changed in his favor, still the president has maintained his focus on Biden with fresh attacks on his recent shifts in policy. He is recalibrated on everything. Everything he says he's taking back two weeks later because he's getting slammed by the left. Reporter: Meanwhile, trump has doubled down on his comments to ABC news earlier this week that he would accept political dirt from a foreign adversary. I think I'd take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I'd go maybe to the FBI if I thought there was something wrong. Reporter: Those comments drew outrage among Democrats. This one is a new low. Reporter: And even prompted criticism from some of the president's allies. Foreign influence in our elections is growing not lessening. We don't want to send the tall to encourage it. Reporter: The president says he would have to take a look, but definitely report it. Of course you have to look at it because if you don't look at it, you don't know if it's bad. But of course you give it to the FBI or report it to the attorney general or somebody like that. But of course you do that. You couldn't have that happen with our country. Back now live with Rachel at the white house. So, president trump is getting ready to relaunch his presidential campaign on Tuesday and now the Democrats are getting ready for their first big debate. The DNC just released that lineup. What can we expect? Reporter: Yeah, Eva, that long awaited list is finally out and there are so many democratic contenders that the debates are separated into two nights so on the first night you can expect to see senator Elizabeth Warren share the stage with senator Cory booker as well as New York City mayor bill de Blasio and then on the second night, that's when you are going to see former vice president Joe Biden face off against senator Bernie Sanders along with other top contenders like senator kamala Harris and mayor Pete buttigieg, certainly a time to shine in a crowded field, Eva. And speaking of a time to shine, can we just take a moment this morning, this is Rachel's first time on "Gma." Apart of our ABC family for several years now but we are so happy to have you working with us. Welcome to the team, Rachel. Excited to be here. Thank you, Eva. Rachel Scott for us at the white house.
