DONALD Trump has claimed "something's wrong with Joe Biden" after saying the president "wouldn't pass cognitive test the way he did."
The former US leader, who was beaten by Biden, 78, in the US presidential election last year, made the accusations in a two-hour interview with a conservative news site.
“I don’t think you’ll face Biden [in 2024],” Trump, 75, told Breitbart. “Biden is not an old man, by the way, but there’s something wrong. But he is not an old man—he’s going to be 79; that is not old.
"I know people that are much older than that, and they’re as sharp as they were 40 years ago. Biden is not an old person."
Trump, who is three years younger than his predecessor, continued to insist that age wasn't a factor in his unfounded accusations that Biden is mentally unfit to lead.
"They talk about age. If you’re in your 70s or even your 80s, I know so many people even in their 90s, like Bernie Marcus of Home Depot and so many others; they’re in their 90s and sharp as can be," he claimed.
"But something is wrong. Something is going wrong there. I don’t like to predict that far forward. It’s such a long time, and I don’t know—things are happening left and right.”
It comes after Trump bragged that he “aced” his cognitive test at a Texas border event in June, administered by the former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson
“[Jackson] did a test. Did I ace it? I aced it. And I’d like to see Biden ace it. He won’t ace it,” Trump bragged at the roundtable event.
“He will get the first two. There are 35 questions and the first two or three are pretty easy. They are the animals. This is a lion, a giraffe.
"When he gets to around 20, he’s gonna have a little hard time. I think he’s gonna have a hard time with the first few, actually."
Biden retorted that being asked to take a cognitive test was offensive and suggested that Trump himself “can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion.”
“No, I haven’t taken a test," a raging Biden told CBS. "Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man.
'TRYING TO GOAD ME'
"That’s like saying, ‘You, before you got on this program, did you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not? What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?'” Biden said.
“If he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about. Did you watch that? Look, come on, man. I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean, I’m so forward looking.”
The news comes after Biden's approval rating dropped to 43 percent in the wake of the Afghanistan crisis.
Trump slammed Biden for looking at his watch during ceremony for troops killed in Kabul after some of their grieving families complained.
"Tremendous disrespect was paid by Biden when he kept looking at his watch over and over again – every time a coffin came off the plane, he was looking at his watch," he said on Clay Travis and Buck Sexton's podcast.
Republicans are now calling Trump to beg him help them impeach Biden as calls mount for the president's removal over the Kabul crisis and invoke the 25th Amendment.
A spokesperson for Trump denied the report but the Daily Beast reported that two Republican sources confirmed the calls to them.
