Joe Biden's campaign on Tuesday issued a sharp response to President Trump's criticism of the former vice president while on a state visit to Japan, calling the president's attacks on his potential 2020 rival "beneath the dignity of the office."

While in Japan, Trump repeatedly criticized Biden on Twitter and during a press conference alongside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The president said multiple times he agreed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's assessment that Biden was a "low IQ" individual.

"To be on foreign soil, on Memorial Day, and to side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow American and former Vice President speaks for itself," Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement. "And it's part of a pattern of embracing autocrats at the expense of our institutions — whether taking Putin's word at face value in Helsinki or exchanging 'love letters' with Kim Jong Un."

Biden's campaign appeared to wait to respond to Trump's broadsides until the president landed back in Washington, D.C., a nod toward the old adage that criticism stops while the president is abroad.

Trump has been fixated on Biden since the former vice president entered the race, tweeting repeatedly about him and predicting that he would be the eventual Democratic nominee.

The result is a three-point uptick from FAU's March poll.

While in Japan, the president sided with Kim Jong Un in his criticisms and targeted Biden over his support of a 1994 crime bill.

"Kim Jong Un made a statement that Joe Biden is a low IQ individual. He probably is based on his record. I think I agree with him on that," Trump said while standing alongside Abe at a press conference in Tokyo.

Asked in a follow-up question whether he was siding with a foreign dictator over a former U.S. vice president, Trump stood firm.

"I don't take sides as to who I'm in favor of, who I'm not," Trump added. "But I can tell you that Joe Biden was a disaster. His administration with President Obama, they were basically a disaster when it came to so many things."

Biden jokes about close contact with woman at rally: 'I want the press to know she pulled me close'.
Former Vice President Joe Biden joked that a woman pulled him "close" at a presidential campaign event in New Hampshire, seemingly making light of allegations that his behavior has made women uncomfortable. "We've got a little secret going here. I want the press to know she pulled me close," Biden said after a voter reached out to speak in his ear.
