  • “How do I lose in the polls of a mental r***rd?” he asked assistants in early 2020 2020

Donald Trump called Joe Biden a “mental r***rd” when he saw him lose in the polls during the 2020 campaign and believed the Democrats would replace him with Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama because he was “too old.” a new book claims.

In Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost, Michael Bender claims Trump was furious with his campaign team when he saw him follow the then 77-year-old in voter polls.

He is said to have interrupted an Oval Office policy meeting in early 2020 and asked, “How do I lose in the polls of a mental r***rd,” according to an excerpt obtained by Vanity Fair.

Bender also writes that Trump did not attack Biden in the early stages of the primaries because he believed Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama by the time of the general election.

For the book, due out on August 10, Bender interviewed more than 150 people, including Trump at least twice during two trips to Mar-a-Lago.

A month before the COVID pandemic hit the US, Trump said at a rally that Democratic leadership would ‘realise’ [Biden is old] and they’re going to give it to someone else.’

Dick Morris, a former Clinton White House adviser who worked “quietly” for Trump last year, said President Biden was “too old and prone to gaffes to be the candidate.”

Others in Trump’s inner circle and Fox News’ Sean Hannity believed Biden would be forced out of the race if Trump launched the offensive on the campaign trail.

“The president, meanwhile, had often complained that his early attack on Elizabeth Warren had hurt her presidential bid, which he regretted because he considered her an easier opponent than Biden,” Bender wrote. “Now he was concerned that a torrent of attack ads would hasten the secret conspiracy of the Democrats, and his mind raced over who might choose to replace Biden.”

Trump campaign researcher Tony Fabrizio, Bender writes, tried to stop a belief spreading through the team that the Democrats would steal the nomination at the convention.

In a memo, Fabrizio wrote: “I know there is some concern (which I strongly disagree with) that if we go after Biden too soon, we could make him collapse, and the Democrats will replace him at their convention. I know that POTUS often shares this view.

Bender adds that Fabrizio was trying to make it clear that the remaining Democratic primary had “no major challenger” and that Biden “had the delegate card to secure the nomination.”

The title of Bender’s book comes from Trump’s statement on November 4, 2020, two days after the election with millions of votes still uncounted, but as Biden looks like he could win.

He said: ‘We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we won this election.

“This is a major fraud for our nation. We want the law to be used properly. So we go to the US Supreme Court. We want all voices to stop.’

“A very sad group of people are trying to disenfranchise the millions of people who voted for Trump,” he said in his statement at the White House.

He has since insisted he won the vote, claiming it got caught up in “election fraud.”

He has now supported audits and recounts in several states, including Arizona and Pennsylvania, in his continued effort to reverse the results.
