ORLANDO, Fla. - Vice President Joe Biden visited Orlando Monday ahead of Tuesday’s vice presidential debate between candidates Sen. Tim Kaine and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
Biden did not hold back when it came to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“I honest to God don't believe ever, in the history of the United States of America, has a major party candidate been less informed, dangerously uninformed, like he is,” said Biden.

A rally at Church Street Station was the first of two stops for Biden, who then traveled to Sarasota.
He is one of several high-profile Democrats making stops this week in Florida for Hillary Clinton. President Obama is set to visit Miami on Wednesday.
Biden said world leaders have told him that they're concerned about a Trump presidency.
“I swear to God, they are very, very, very worried. ‘What's happened to the United States?’ Is the constant question I get asked,” said Biden.
Trump is in Colorado Monday while Pence visits Virginia.
Biden did not refer to Tuesday's vice presidential debate, but did call for the dialogue to shift back to the issues.
“He hit on key notes, and I really like the part that he said, because we're all saying the same thing, it's time for us to start talking positive,” said Clinton supporter Debra Martin.
Monday's rally was also a chance to sign up new voters. With a close race expected, both sides are trying to beat next Tuesday's registration deadline.
