US President Trump has openly challenged his potential presidential rival Joe Biden to take a cognitive test, as he suggested “with respect” that “something” was “going on” with the former vice president, during his interview to Fox News.
Speaking to the channel’s medical reporter Dr. Marc Siegel for “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, Trump went on to brag about his “amazing” cognitive test score, which the president said he decided to take less than a year ago to respond to critics about his alleged incompetence in ruling the country.
According to POTUS, his position, which he dubbed a “very important job”, required “stamina.”, as well as “physical” and “mental health”.
Trump then went on to detail the questions he was given during the examination by his doctor Ronny Jackson, arguing that they proved that he had “a good memory” and was “cognitively there”. But he suggested then that Joe Biden was also required to take a similar test if he was seriously considering taking part in the 2020 presidential race.
“Honestly, he should take the test, in a way it’s an obligation,” Trump said. “You have to be able to show this country that the person that we are picking as a leader is sharp.”
