Trump, who called Biden ‘cognitively impaired,’ mocked for saying the president would lead the US into ‘World War II’ in a gaffe-strewn speech

The former US president and 2024 candidate Donald Trump was mocked on social media after he said President Joe Biden was “cognitively impaired” and would lead the country into “World War II” if he were re-elected during a Washington, DC, summit on Friday.

In the same speech, Trump appeared to mix up Biden and former President Barack Obama, saying he was ahead of Obama in the 2024 election polls. 

Trump also seemed to suggest that Obama had been his runner-up in the 2016 election, saying, “With Obama, we won an election that everyone said couldn’t be won.” He then corrected himself and specified his opponent was actually Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s mix-ups raise doubts about the former president and 2024 candidate’s age and mental fitness.
