WASHINGTON: Former United States Vice President Joe Biden has lambasted President Donald Trump and his administration, stating that the President is leading the US "down a very dark path".

Biden, in his acceptance speech after receiving the Zbigniew Brzezinski annual prize at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), took a dig at the US President.

"We really worry that we're walking down a very dark path. It's not alarmist. We're walking down a very dark path that isolates the United States on the world stage and, as a consequence, endangers -- not strengthens -- endangers American interests and the American people," CNN quoted Biden as saying.

Biden also lambasted Trump's speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), where termed North Korea's Kim Jong Un as "rocket man" .​

"Trading insults. Deploying taunting nicknames. Promising to 'totally destroy' a country of 25 million people. Such erratic action only worsens the crisis and rejects the possibility of diplomacy,” Biden added.
