Lendman made the remarks on Saturday when asked about President Donald Trump and former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden who have been engaged in back-and-forth personal attacks recently.
In an interview with CNN on Friday, Biden said he is not intimidated by Trump and tried to reassure Democrats concerned about his ability to stand up to the Republican president.
“The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump,” Biden told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, with a look that suggested that notion would be foolish.
“He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to,” he added. “He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid, that I stutter – and I’d smack him in the mouth.”
Trump told reporters at the White House that he doesn’t agree with Biden’s assessment.
“I don’t think I’m a bully at all. I just don’t like being taken advantage of by other countries, by pharmaceutical companies, by all of the people that have taken advantage of this country,” he said.
Lendman, an author and a radio host, said that “the problem with both of them is more the US system than any individual politician, the US system is bent on dominating all of the nations, controlling their resources and their populations.”
He went on say that “all US elections always turn out the same way, they always do, dirty business as usual always wins, that’s the way the US system goes.”
