Flashback: Donald Trump Knocks Joe Biden for Plagiarism in Law School

‘I think I would match up very well against him’

Donald Trump knocks Joe Biden for plagiarism in law school (CNN)

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump said he would "do great" in a hypothetical matchup with Vice President Joe Biden in part because of the prospective candidate's plagiarism in law school.

"I think I'd matchup great. I'm a job producer. I've had a great record, I haven't been involved in plagiarism. I think I would match up very well against him," Trump told conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday night.

Biden admitted to plagiarizing while in law school as well as lifting from writings by British politician Neil Kinnock while on the campaign trail -- and it became an issue that haunted his failed 1988 presidential bid.
