"Put in jail": Biden taunts Trump on Late Show

When he appeared on the late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! US President Biden speaks on several issues that are currently on the minds of US citizens. He insists on dishing out against his Republican predecessor Trump.

Things are going haywire in the United States at the moment: Many people are worried about the re-election of ex-President Donald Trump, abortion rights are on the brink and the trauma that the shooting spree at a school in Uvalde, Texas, recently left in its wake, is real not yet processed. A tightening of the gun law is still not in sight.

US President Joe Biden commented on these topics on Wednesday on the late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". The Democrat took the opportunity to tease his Republican predecessor. When moderator Jimmy Kimmel asked why he wasn't just signing an executive order on lax gun laws, he said: "What I don't want to do - and I'm not joking - is Trump's abuse of the Constitution and constitutional authority imitate." In the dispute over the repeal of abortion rights, however, he is considering such a regulation.

He's often asked why Democrats "play fair" when Republicans don't, Biden said. "If we do what they do, our democracy would literally be in jeopardy." Kimmel likened the situation to a game of Monopoly, where a player refuses to follow the rules, allowing no progress. "Well, you have to send them to jail, straight to jail," Biden quipped.

Biden gave the ex-president another swipe a little later when Kimmel jokingly asked which toilet he used to flush important documents. "I'll call Trump," Biden replied, laughing. Trump, who is likely to run again for the Republicans in 2024, has been accused of tearing up a number of unwanted documents during his tenure. He reportedly tried to flush it down the toilet in the White House living area.

Despite the tense situation, he was "optimistic", said Biden during his TV appearance. "Look at the kids, look at the young people. The most educated, the least biased, the most generous generation in history. This generation is going to change everything." You just have to be careful "that we don't give up."
