Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden clarified in a feisty interview moment that he’s never taken a cognitive test amid repeated attacks by President Trump on the 77-year-old former vice president’s mental stamina.
At a news conference in June, when Fox News’ Doug McKelway asked if he’d been tested for his mental acuity, Biden responded that he’s "been tested and I'm constantly tested.” Biden's advisers later clarified that the former vice president was referring to the everyday rigors of a presidential general election campaign.
And during a June interview with Fox News, Trump claimed that “Joe’s not all there.
However, a third of those questioned said they were very confident that the president has the mental and physical fitness to carry out his job, compared with 23 percent for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
The 74-year old Trump last month defended his own mental fitness and claimed that he had “very recently” taken a cognitive test at Walter Reed Medical Center and boasted that he had “aced” it.
