Vice President Joe Biden will critique Donald Trump's foreign policy proposals during a national security speech, according to The Hill.

The White House released some of Biden's remarks before the speech to the Center for a New American Security, a Washington think tank. Biden does not refer to Trump by name, but discusses the dangers he perceives from the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's proposals, including building a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.

"If we build walls and disrespect our closest neighbors, we will quickly see all this progress disappear — replaced by a return of anti-Americanism and a corrosive rift through our hemisphere," Biden said.

He noted that Trump feeds into the anti-U.S. rhetoric of the "violent extremists" with his calls for military action against terror suspects' families and new torture methods.

"Adopting the tactics of our enemies — using torture, threatening to kill innocent family members, indiscriminately bombing civilian populations — not only violates our values, it's deeply damaging to our security," Biden said, the Hill reports.

He also addressed Trump's attacks on the Mexican heritage of Judge Gonzalo Curiel according to the Los Angeles Times. At one event, Biden said Trump's attempts to intimidate a judge would be "a blatantly unconstitutional abuse of power."

CBS News reports Biden has said he does not underestimate Trump.

"He's surprised everybody," Biden said, adding "I think we all make a mistake when we don't take him seriously."
