Donald Trump has said that he believes Joe Biden has been ‘brainwashed’ by the ‘radical left’, who questions Biden’s mental capacity and warns that the United States would take the path of Venezuela under a Biden presidency.
Trump was asked during an interview on Thursday evening with Sean Hannity how he thought the blundery 77-year-old Biden would face the stress of the presidency.
Trump said Fox news that it was not a question of age, adding that he knew many extremely sharp people in their eighties and nineties.
The 74-year-old previously said it was a matter of being ‘brainwashed’ by Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other left-wing Democrats.
“Let’s face it – he’s been taken over by the radical left,” Trump said.
Donald Trump, pictured on Wednesday with Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the President of Mexico, said on Thursday evening that Biden was ‘brainwashed’ by ‘the radical left’
“I think they brainwashed him. They brainwashed him. He does not know where he is. He does not know what he is doing.
“And our country will suffer. Our stock markets will crash. Bad things will happen.
“They will cheat the police. They will abolish the police. It will be, maybe there will be a backlash or maybe it will just go to hell like Venezuela. ‘
Trump said Biden “has no idea what they are doing and what they are getting him into.”
He said Biden’s policy tipped to the left in an attempt to appease Sanders’ voters.
Trump said Biden tried to appease the electorate with ‘crazy, radical left-wing things’
Biden, Trump said, “has no idea what they are doing and what they are getting him into”
“And look at the deal they’ve now made with Bernie Sanders and the group, it’s all crazy, radical left-wing stuff,” he said.
“And Joe will never be able to fight it, even if he disagrees, which I don’t think he actually does.”
Trump also mocked Biden for his looks while wearing a ‘solid’ mask, saying it makes the Democratic nominee ‘feel good’.
Trump himself has firmly refused to wear a mask, despite health experts urging Americans to cover their nose and mouth to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“I have no problem with a mask,” he insisted.
“I don’t think you need one if you’re being tested all the time. Everyone around you is tested. ‘
Speaking on the day that the US had a record number of new infections for the second time in a row, Trump once again defended the way his administration handled the coronavirus pandemic, insisting that the media distort reality.
He said that Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the infectious disease center and member of the White House coronavirus task force, is a “nice man” who “made many mistakes.”
He also criticized the media for focusing on the increase in business and ignoring the drop in mortality.
“They don’t talk about death because death is way below,” Trump said.
