President Donald Trump confirmed that he does plan on giving a traditional political convention speech in the state of North Carolina to accept the Republican nomination, even after coronavirus concerns forced the Republican Party to all but cancel party convention plans in Charlotte and Jacksonville, Florida.
The President confirmed the speech is slated for the state, but it’s unclear if he’ll give it in Charlotte.
“All I know is I’ll be in North Carolina,” Trump told WRAL on Monday. ”I am really honored to do it in North Carolina.”
The President clarified that he plans to announce where exactly he’ll make his nomination acceptance speech by the end of the week or at the beginning of next week. He also spoke of his confidence in winning the Republican-leaning state in the general election, speaking at a tour of a plant working on research for a coronavirus vaccine.
Both major party conventions appear slated for a socially distanced and largely digital party format. Rumors suggest that Joe Biden, the tentative Democratic nominee, will be the only individual to give an in-person convention speech at the Democratic convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The impending convention speech could be a pivotal moment for President Donald Trump to make his case for a second term to the American people. After trailing in some national polls, a new round of polling shows the President cutting into Joe Biden’s lead.
WATCH: “Are You A Junkie?” Joe Biden FLIPS On CBS Reporter After Question About Cognitive Test
Biden didn’t appreciate the question.
Joe Biden responded angrily to a question from a CBS News reporter on taking a cognitive test Wednesday, asking Errol Barnett if he was a “junkie” and stating that he should have to take a drug test in order to interview Biden with the assumption he was taking cocaine.
“No, I haven’t taken a test… Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, you take a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not? Are you a junkie?”
The inference that CBS reporter Errol Barnett is a junkie would’ve almost certainly been blasted as offensive if President Trump or another public figure made the claim. At the most, Biden’s ad hominem response to the legitimate question reveals his sensitivity to claims of his own cognitive decline.
“I know you’re trying to goad me… I’m so looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates.”
President Trump has argued that Biden should take an equivalent of the Montreal Cognitive Fitness Test, which he took around a year ago with results indicating strong cognitive capacity. The question of mental acuity has consistently arisen as Biden frequently commits mental errors and gaffes during public appearances, ranging from forgetting which state he’s in, confusing his wife and his sister, and even forgetting what office he’s campaigning for.
Biden went on to struggle to pronounce the phrase “physical fitness.”
