Andrew Yang challenged President Donald Trump to a push-up contest before calling him a slob and fat.
He also said that America would love to see him pass out.
He started his presidential rift when talking about the fried foods he enjoyed at the Iowa State Fair.
The Democratic presidential contender told reporters after speaking at a gun at the Iowa State Fair: “I can’t be eating crap on the trail too often because I need to stay in presidential form.
“No one wants a president who doesn’t seem he can run a mile. I think. I don’t know.”
Yang then turned to rip on Trump. He said: “I don’t think Donald Trump can run a mile. Would you guys enjoy watching Donald Trump run a mile? That would be hysterical. What does that guy weigh? 280 or something.
“I say he like passes out at the quarter mile mark.”
At 6ft 3in tall, the president had the body mass of 30.4. Yang said he would love to challenge him on the track.
“Oh yeah. I’d challenge Donald Trump to any physical or mental feat under the sun. Oh god. What can that guy beat me at? Being a slob?” he added.
His campaign staff tried to pull him away from reporters but Yang wanted to stay and said: “I can do approximately infinitely more push ups to Donald Trump.”
When he was asked to demonstrate, the campaign staff intervened and Yang said: “I take pride in my ability to do push ups on a dime.”
He then went on through a list of things where he could beat Trump.
“I want to go through this intellectually, like what could Donald Trump possibly be better than me at? An eating contest? Like something that involves, keeping something on the ground and having really large body mass, like if there was a hot air balloon that was rising, and you needed to try and keep it on the ground?” he said.
“He would be better than me at that because he is so fat,” he added. A campaign staffer stepped in and said, “Andrew,” but Yang kept going.
“He might be able to beat me at golf although I’m told he cheats a lot so who knows what his true golf ability is,” he added.
