Joe Biden is offering a searing takedown of Donald Trump's views on American democracy and foreign policy.

The vice president says Trump's claim the election may be "rigged" is an attack on "the very essence" of democracy. Biden was speaking Thursday in New Hampshire while campaigning on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

Biden said Trump's assertion in Sunday's debate that the U.S. doesn't know who is behind hacks of the Clinton campaign emails undermines the legitimacy of U.S. intelligence officials. They've said Russia appears to be behind the attacks. Trump says he does not believe that.

Biden said, "Ladies and gentlemen, this guy is far beyond a bad character with women."

Biden also said Trump has made so many "asinine assertions" that a debate over policy ideas has been drowned out.
