In an interview last Sunday with Chris Wallace, the Commander in Chief suggested presumptive presidential Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, could not handle the same kind of questions from the Fox News anchor the way that he could.
“Let him come out of his basement and go around. I’ll make 4 or 5 speeches a day, I’ll be interviewed by you, I’ll be the worst killers that hate my guts– they hate my guts. There’s nothing they can ask me that I won’t give them a proper answer to. Some people will like it, some people won’t like it,” the president said last weekend. “But look, let Biden sit through an interview like this. He’ll be on the ground crying for Mommy. He’ll say ‘Mommy, Mommy, please take me home.”
Chris Wallace told President Trump last weekend,” Well, we’ve asked him for an interview, sir,” to which the president responded, “He can’t do an interview, he’s incompetent.”

Chris Wallace informed his viewers this Sunday before his show ended, that the Biden campaign told Fox News he was “not available” for an interview.
“In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, could handle a similar encounter,” Wallace said. “This week, we asked the Biden campaign for an interview and they said the former vice president was not available.”
He added, “We’ll keep asking every week.” Video Below

The Trump campaign has hit Biden for months for abstaining from holding rallies and news conferences while continuing to do interviews amid the coronavirus pandemic. While Biden recently has returned to the stump, Trump and his allies continued to mock the former vice president for “hiding” in his home in Delaware, Fox News reported.
Last month, The Freedom Times reported a poll indicating that majority (55%) of likely voters believe former Vice President Joe Biden is “in the early stages of dementia.”
Zogby Analytics conducted the online poll between June 1 and June 2, where there were 1007 respondents. The party breakdown for the survey was 36% Democrat, 36% Republican and 28% Independent/ unaffiliated. Continued Below
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, dementia is “a usually progressive condition (such as Alzheimer’s disease) marked by the development of multiple cognitive deficits (such as memory impairment, aphasia and the inability to plan and initiate complex behavior).”
Rasmussen Reports also conducted a poll last month, revealing that some voters believe Joe Biden has dementia.
