President Donald Trump challenged Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden to take a cognitive assessment test to demonstrate his mental acuity while speaking to Fox News’ Chris Wallace.
“Let’s take a test right now. Let’s go down, Joe and I will take a test. Let him take the same test that I took,” said President Trump, referring to taking the Montreal Cognitive Assessment in 2018.
Trump went on to reject claims by Wallace that the test he was referring to was easy enough that anyone could pass it, arguing from his experience that the test was a strong indicator of cognitive capability.
“It’s all misrepresentation,” Trump said of Wallace’s claims. “Because, yes, the first few questions are easy, but I’ll bet you couldn’t even answer the last five questions. I’ll bet you couldn’t, they get very hard, the last five questions.”
The President had scored a full 30 out of 30 on the Montreal assessment in 2018, demonstrating mental awareness and acuity.
Questions have been consistently raised about Biden’s mental capacity and sharpness, with the 77-year old former Vice President at times forgetting what office he is running for, what state he is currently in, and confusing his wife with his sister.
Biden’s campaign team have increasingly limited his in-person and live interview and rally events, seeking to shield the tentative Democratic nominee after a series of embarrassing gaffes during digital coronavirus events.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Rebuffed From Democratic Convention, While RINO John Kasich Will Speak
Kasich’s more of a Democrat than AOC.
Reports for plans for the Democratic National Convention indicate that progressive New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not be giving a speech for the program of events, while former Ohio Governor John Kasich- a nominal Republican- will be speaking in a primetime slot in support of Joe Biden for President.
The prioritization of Kasich over Ocasio-Cortez shows Biden’s interest in appealing to suburban affluent Republican voters, even if it comes at a detriment to turning out the Democratic base of urban millennials. The strategy could backfire significantly, especially if Ocasio-Cortez herself chooses to respond in kind and only provide lukewarm support for Biden.
Initial reports suggested that AOC would be given a primetime speaking role, only for sources close to the Bronx Democrat to correct such an assertion. It appears that AOC will instead speak in a limited capacity, in a function reflecting her role as a leader of Biden’s climate working task force.
Joe Biden may be the only individual to speak personally from the convention hall in which the event is principally located, on account of coronavirus social distancing measures. Biden campaign operatives are reportedly making “ruthless cuts” to accommodate for the digital nature of the event, forcing out many Democrats who would otherwise speak at the convention in person.
Kasich will speak on the same night as Vermont Independent socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, in a gesture that’s intended to highlight the range of Biden’s base of support.
