Biden liked this sentence: Trump's reaction to his rival's attacks on gaffes and old age

Who among us has not heard the saying that there is nothing better than one day at a time? This is exactly what the president said United States of America, Joe BidenYou must be thinking about your main political rival, Donald Trump.

The Republican repeatedly used Biden's age, who turned 81 at the end of last year, as the Democrat's weakness in the election campaign that led him to the White House in 2020.

Trump said that Biden is too old to become president and that his health condition will not allow him to complete his term. He also showed his campaign excerpts from speeches in which Biden got confused or forgot what to say, and he often laughed at the Democrat.

But now the game has turned, and it is Trump who is hearing from his rival for the Republican Party nomination in the November 5th elections that he is old.

Does Trump like wine?

Trump is 77 years old, and if he wins the Republican Party nomination to run for the White House, he will enter the November elections a little older, that is, at 78 years old.

Nikki Haley, his rival in the party, is more than 20 years his junior. The former governor of South Carolina and former US ambassador to the United Nations recently turned 52 years old.

But according to Trump, it's like wine: it gets better as the years go by. “I am more aware now than I was 20 years ago,” he said in response to recent attacks on his age.

Trump's mistakes

In recent days, Haley accused Trump of confusion and doubted his ability to be president at his age.

“So he's going to have no problem getting into a debate with me, because that's the ultimate test of any presidential candidate's mental competency,” Haley said.

Trump refused to participate in any of the Republican nomination debates and refuses to debate Haley.

In response to his rival's statement, Trump defended that presidential candidates take cognitive tests, a challenge that Haley herself had already posed to the former president.

The former South Carolina governor's provocation of Trump comes after he made some mistakes.

During a speech on January 19, Trump conflated Haley with former Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

On another occasion, the Republican also pointed out that former US President, Democrat Barack Obama, is still in office.

Exploiting Trump's age and confusion comes at a time when Haley appears to be the only option for the Republican Party for the party's nomination, and she is far behind in this race.

“It's time to put an end to this,” Trump said, referring to the dispute over the nomination.

He appears to be leading Haley in the polls in South Carolina, and has no clear path to the nomination — a fact even Biden has acknowledged.

Following Trump's victory in the New Hampshire primary on January 23, the Biden campaign issued a statement saying: “It is now clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee.”
