Biden should take a'mandated' cognitive test, according to Trump

Many progressives and detractors questioned Trump's mental capacity throughout his presidency and asked that he be tested.

Former President Donald Trump proposed that President Joe Biden take a cognitive test to determine that he is mentally competent of interacting with other foreign leaders who are "at the top of their game."

"All I can say is I know [China’s] President Xi, I know [Russia President Vladimir] Putin, I know [North Korea's] Kim Jong Un. I know all of the leaders of the world, I got to know them very well. Many of them I like, although tough cookies. They’re all at the top of their game," Trump said Tuesday night on Fox News' "Hannity."

"We need somebody that's at the top of the game. Maybe it should be mandated that you take like a cognitive test or something. You can't have the head of China, the head of Russia, the head of these powerful nations being at the top of their game. Look at what's happening. Look how weak we look.

 

"You don't think that Russia, China, Kim Jong Un of North Korea, all these other people that hate us, you don't think they were watching and laughing all the way to the bank?"

The "terrible, dumb pullout" of US soldiers from Afghanistan, where military equipment was left in the hands of the Taliban, was especially mentioned by Trump.

Former presidential physician and current Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson said Trump, as president, answered all 30 questions properly on a cognitive test, according to host Sean Hannity.

Many progressives and detractors questioned Trump's mental capacity throughout his presidency and asked that he be tested.

On Friday morning, President Joe Biden had a medical checkup at Walter Reed Medical Center by his doctor. Biden, who is 79 years old and the country's oldest first-term president, has been deemed fit for duty.

According to a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll, half of those polled disputed that Biden "is in good health."

Recent developments in the globe have brought China and Russia into the spotlight.

Last week, Biden and Xi conducted a three-and-a-half-hour virtual conversation, during which the US president omitted to bring up the issue of COVID-19's origins. In recent weeks, China has taken actions that appear to put Taiwan in jeopardy.

The Biden administration is reportedly considering deploying military advisers and weaponry to Ukraine in response to Russia's escalating threat of invading its Eastern European neighbor.
