NEW YORK (AP) — A senior aide to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says President Donald Trump's attacks against Biden on foreign soil "are beneath the dignity of the office."

While in Japan on Monday, the Republican president said he agreed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's assessment that Biden "is a low-IQ individual." Biden's campaign said it waited until Tuesday to respond out of respect for Memorial Day.

Deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield lashed out at Trump in a statement. She said: "To be on foreign soil, on Memorial Day, and to side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow American and former Vice President speaks for itself."

Bedingfield called Trump's comments "part of a pattern of embracing autocrats at the expense of our institutions."
