Former President Donald Trump didn’t mince words as he criticized President Joe Biden for his recent appearance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.
Speaking to a crowd in Fort Dodge, Iowa, Trump, 77, insinuated that Biden, 80, may rely on medication to maintain energy during public speeches but experiences confusion when its effects wear off.
“Mockery and Criticism at Iowa Rally”
Addressing the cheering crowd, Trump expressed his views on Biden’s public appearances, stating, ‘Our leader is a stupid person.
Our leader can’t get off this stage.’ Mimicking Biden’s purported confusion, Trump playfully imitated the president’s gestures and repeated phrases.
“Biden’s APEC Summit Moments Highlighted”
Trump’s critique comes after Biden’s appearance at the APEC summit, where moments of confusion and awkward interactions were captured. Biden’s handshake confusion and avoidance of pronouncing a corporate entity’s name were highlighted, with Trump using these instances to emphasize his point.
“Trump’s Ongoing Jabs at Biden’s Behavior”
This isn’t the first time Trump has criticized Biden for what he perceives as senile behavior. The former president has previously nicknamed Biden ‘Sleepy Joe’ and pointed out instances of apparent confusion and public gaffes.
“Trump’s Take on Bagram Airfield and Future Plans”
During the Iowa rally, Trump also addressed the decision to hand control of Bagram Airfield to Afghan forces, claiming it is now occupied by China.
He expressed dissatisfaction with the decision and suggested that, if re-elected in 2024, he would aim to regain control of the strategic airfield through a potential trade deal with Afghanistan.
“Iowa Rally and 2024 Strategy”
Trump’s visit to Iowa was part of his strategic push to garner support and volunteers before the state’s upcoming caucuses.
