Actual U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump took the high road after Vice President Joe Biden said he would engage in good ol' fashioned fisticuffs if the two were still in school.

On Tuesday night, Trump said he'd love to put his dukes up against Biden, CNN reports.
"I'd love that. I'd love that. Mr. tough guy," Trump said.
"He wants to bring me to the back of the barn."
"You know, he's Mr. Tough Guy. You know when he's Mr. Tough Guy? When he's standing behind a microphone by himself," Trump added.
Trump was responding to comments Biden made last Friday at a rally for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The VP blasted the billionaire after a leaked tape from 2005 revealed remarks Trump made about being able to do whatever he wants to women because he's famous.
Biden described the comments as "the textbook definition of sexual assault," according to NBC News.

At the rally, the VP said he keeps getting asked by the press if he would relish a chance to debate Trump.
Biden said he instead wished he "were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym."
Barn or gym? Both?
Trump somehow managed to remember Biden's comments differently, however. USA Today reports the Republican flagbearer said Biden wanted to take him back behind a "barn," which differs slightly from a gym.
"He wants to bring me to the back of the barn. Ooooh. Some things in life you could really love doing," said Trump.
