Did Trump mistake Sarah Sanders for Hope Hicks? Internet labels him as 'confused' POTUS: 'Clear dementia'
Trump addressed a rally in Iowa on November 1 and had called Ivanka, his former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and adviser Hope Hicks to the stage to address the crowd
On Sunday, November 1, President Donald Trump faced harsh weather at the Iowa rally. “I'm standing up and this is a hell of a lot of wind,” he told the crowd. He said, “It's lucky you have a president that doesn't need a teleprompter because these things are useless.”
He took a dig at Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by saying he wouldn't be able to speak under such circumstances, according to a report by Daily Mail. Trump said, “That wind, I don't know about you, but that wind is hitting me hard.” He addressed Ivanka Trump and said, “My poor daughter is standing there freezing.”
Trump added, “Sleepy Joe would be lost.” He then called Ivanka, his former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and adviser Hope Hicks to the stage to address the crowd. Trump said, “'The great Hope Hicks. Do you know Hope? She's become very famous.”
Hicks spoke briefly and Trump noted she doesn't like public speaking. “Hi, how much do we love our president? Are you guys going to vote on Tuesday?” Hicks said as the crowd cheered and chanted Trump’s name.” We love you Iowa. Thank you.”
Trump embraced Sanders who said, “He's had an amazing four years. As a mom of three young kids, there's nobody I trust more to build their future and protect our great country in President Donald Trump.” Then he called in Iowa Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst to the stage to speak. Ernst is in a closely-contested re-election race.
He further attacked Biden for his tax policies and energy plans. Trump said, “If Biden gets in you can forget about ethanol.” It is one of the biggest industries in Iowa, as Daily Mail states. He added, “Biden has vowed to abolish the oil industry and this would be a death sentence to ethanol.”
People on Twitter were soon talking about the rally. Author Michael Beschloss in a tweet alleged, “During Iowa rally, Trump now confuses Sarah Sanders with Hope Hicks. Imagine if his opponent had done such a thing.” One user, replying to this allegation, said, “Trump getting more and more confused. Can’t tell Sarah Sanders from Hope Hicks. Clear Dementia.” These are speculations on the internet as this incident cannot be confirmed independently.
Another said, “Sarah Sanders and Hope Hicks joined #Trump on stage to say a few words.. Wow... for two people with a background in White House communications, they were both terrible."How good does that sound... President Trump?" – Sanders "How much do we love our President?" – Hicks.”

Trump had kicked off his five-rally day in snowy Michigan earlier and joked that people should wear face masks. “Today you should wear them anyway,” Trump said. He also said, “This is a hell of a day. You guys must love Trump.” He added, “That wind is coming right into my face.”
Ivanka introduced her father, comparing him to Winston Churchill in her short remarks. “Winston Churchill said, 'It was the nation that had the lion's heart, I just had the luck to give it the roar’. How much does this remind you of our president and this movement? 'He gave us roar’,” she added.
