President Donald Trump went on a Twitter rampage on Tuesday, October 13, accusing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of having "dementia". The president retweeted a tweet by lawyer Mark Levin that included an article by The Post Millennial which stated that since the 77-year-old could not remember the Republican senator Mitt Romney's name on Monday, October 12, he is a patient of dementia. “Mitt can’t be thrilled about this! Joe also said yesterday he’s running for the U.S. Senate (again) and totally forgot where he was (wrong State!). Joe has never been a nice or kind guy, so it’s easier to find this obvious & rapidly getting worse “dementia” unacceptable for USA!” Trump wrote on Twitter. 


Biden was speaking to the media about the confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court when he made the gaffe. “No, I don't think there should be any questions about her faith,” the former vice president said, before adding, “I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon—the governor.” In 2012, Romney was the Republican presidential nominee.

Launching a war of words against Biden, Trump posted a number of tweets and retweets in less than two hours. In one of his tweets, he shared a post that has the video of Biden in which he chose not to answer questions on whether he would pack the Supreme Court. The POTUS also asked him to release a list of candidates who he thinks deserve to replace late Justice Ruth Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the Supreme Court. “He must create a list, like I did! Always considered most important Presidential decision. Voter’s entitled to know!!!!” Trump said.


Biden gave another chance to Trump to make fun of him when in Toledo, Ohio, on Monday while campaigning he addressed United Auto Workers and said: “You know, we have to come together. That's why I'm running. I'm running as a proud Democrat for the Senate when I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I'm running as a proud Democrat for president. But I promise you this, I will govern as an American president.”

The Republican leader did not miss the chance and tweeted: “Biden losing big in Florida. Only Fake Polls show otherwise! Bad for Healthcare. Thinks he’s running for the Senate. Forgot Mitt Romney’s name, and where he was!” In another tweet, he wrote: “'I’m running as a proud Democrat, for the Senate'. Sleepy Joe Biden today. It’s only going to get worse. It is not sustainable for our Country - China will own us!!!!”



Another tweet from Trump read: “Sleepy Joe Biden had a particularly bad day today. He couldn’t remember the name of Mitt Romney, said again he was running for the U.S. Senate and forgot what State he was in. If I did any of this, it would be disqualifying. With him, he’s just Sleepy Joe!”


At a rally in Sanford, Florida, on Monday night, the 74-year-old repeated his attack against Biden and stated, “Sleepy Joe Biden, not a nice guy, by the way. He had a very bad day today. If I ever had a day like he had today, they'd say: 'It's over. It's over. He forgot Mitt Romney's name. He didn't know what state he was in'. And he said today he's a proud Democrat running for the US Senate.”

“Could you imagine if I did that? 'Great to be with you. It's great to be a wonderful developer from New York.' They'd say: 'he's out of here. Get him out,'” Trump said, continuing, Biden “has got a lot of bad days coming.”

“The one thing I know for sure, President Xi of China, President Putin of Russia, Kim Jong-un - they are 100 per cent sharp. We have someone running who is not 100 per cent, he's not 80 per cent, he's not 60 per cent,” he added.
