"The president doesn't need somebody else to give him an assessment of Joe Biden," Sanders responded. "He's given his own assessment a number of times."

Sanders's remarks come after North Korea’s KCNA news agency published a commentary piece excoriating Biden.

“He is self-praising himself as being the most popular presidential candidate. This is enough to make a cat laugh,” the agency wrote.

The news outlet went on to belittle Biden as a “fool of low IQ,” citing his college grades and disparaging him for falling asleep at a 2011 speech by former President Obama.

Biden's campaign responded, saying it was "no surprise" that North Korea "would prefer" Trump in the oval office.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted that he "smiled" when Kim referred to Biden as "a low IQ individual."
