Virginia's Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe said he would respond physically to President Donald Trump if he ever used intimidation tactics and got in his "space," the Washington Examiner reported Friday.

"You would have to pick him up off the floor," McAuliffe told MSNBC's Chris Matthews on "Hardball" Thursday.

"Listen, if this guy got in my space — you wanna get in my space? I've always said, 'Chris, you punch me, I'm going to punch back twice as hard.' And, it wouldn't be hard to do it. But, you know, this guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It's disgraceful. It's embarrassing.

"If he ever came over and leaned on me and got in my space, that would be the last time Donald Trump ever did that," McAuliffe said.

McAuliffe has been a vocal opponent of Trump, especially on immigration issues. He served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2001 to 2005 and was chairman of the presidential campaigns of former President Bill Clinton in 1996 and Hillary Clinton in 2008.

McAuliffe is due to leave office on Saturday when newly-elected Democratic Gov.-elect Ralph Northam takes office.
