Trump said former President Obama took Biden "off the trash heap" when he made him his running mate. "I used to call him 1 percent Joe because he never got more than 1 percent," Trump said. 

He referred to Warren as "Pocahontas" and said Sanders isn't doing well in the race. A Morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday showed both Biden and Sanders with double-digit leads among registered voters in a hypothetical match-up against Trump.
