In New Gaffe, Trump Counters Ratchet-up Calls for Mental Acuity

Republican presidential candidate Trump is campaigning in New Hampshire.

  • On the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Trump implied that Barack Obama was still president.
  • The GOP candidates, far behind Trump, aim to make political capital for his repeated bullshit.
  • Biden’s campaign wants to deflect questions about the president’s mental fitness by focusing on Trump’s blunders.

The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, mistakenly told his supporters Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban recently called Barack Obama To leave the office of the President of the United States.

It happened Saturday during Trump’s campaign speech in Claremont, New Hampshire, as he bids for the Republican nomination for the 2024 presidential election.

In an interview in October 2023, he claimed to have asked Orbán “what advice he would give to President Obama”, adding that the Hungarian leader wanted Obama to “resign immediately”. Obama’s term ended when Trump was inaugurated in 2017.

Last month, Trump made another tirade about Orbán during a rant in Derry, New Hampshire, mistakenly calling him the leader of Turkey.

The blunders come amid the media’s surrender to Biden’s mental acuity. A Washington Post-ABC News poll in May found that only 32% of respondents believed Biden’s “mental acuity” was adequate for the White House.

In line with campaigns to undermine the 80-year-old Biden’s credibility over his seniority and alleged mental decline, Trump’s opponents have also challenged his mental abilities. The team behind Florida Gov. Ron DeStantis’ stuttering presidential campaign recently published awkward comments from the 77-year-old Trump.

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has had a relatively successful presidential campaign so far, blasted Trump for speaking favorably of the leaders of China and North Korea at a recent event organized by Jewish donors, despite falling well behind her former boss. Haley said that Trump is “confused” about which countries are allies and enemies of the United States.

“With all due respect, I’m not confused,” Haley, 51, said.

The Washington Post reports that Biden’s campaign has taken to social media to reflect on the allegations about the president’s cognitive abilities.

It has been noted that Trump has difficulty pronouncing Hamas correctly and has made a number of strange comments, including thinking that the abbreviation for the United States should be spelled as “we”.

“The Biden campaign is filling a void in the media because it gives wall-to-wall coverage of anything President Biden says or stumbles on, but Donald Trump’s increasingly erratic behavior is not covered,” one official said. to The Washington Post on condition of anonymity.

According to him, the goal is to show that Trump is an “extremely dangerous, unstable, unusual person.”

Trump’s campaign backtracked. “Biden collapsed on stage, mumbled his speech, didn’t know where to go, and fell on the steps of Air Force One,” Trump spokesman Stephen Cheung told The Washington Post. There is no correction. and it will be embedded in the minds of the voters.

Trump is running for president after failing to win re-election in the last US election. He faces 91 felony counts from five indictments in four criminal cases filed this year.
