Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that since Democratic nominee Joe Biden could not remember Mitt Romney's name Monday when referencing the Republican senator, he must have dementia.
'Mitt can't be thrilled about this! Joe also said yesterday he's running for the U.S. Senate (again) and totally forgot where he was (wrong State!),' the president wrote in an early morning Twitter rampage, pointing to other gaffes from the former vice president on the campaign trail.
Trump added: 'Joe has never been a nice or kind guy, so it's easier to find this obvious & rapidly getting worse 'dementia' unacceptable for USA!'
The president linked to an article with video of Biden speaking to reporters on the Tarmac Monday about the confirmation hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
He said the mother of seven should not have to face questions over her religion from senators who claim she won't be able to separate her morals – as a devout Catholic – from her position on the Supreme Court.
'No, I don't think there should be any questions about her faith,' Biden said, adding a personal anecdote about the time he and President Barack Obama ran against Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
'I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon—the governor,' Biden said of Romney's religion.
Donald Trump took aim at Joe Biden's most recent gaffe forgetting Mitt Romney's name, claiming the Democratic nominee has 'dementia'
Trump launched an early morning Twitter spree on Tuesday where he sent out more than 50 tweets and retweets in less than two hours.
In one tweet, he brought up Biden's refusal to answer questions on whether he would pack the Supreme Court and demanded he release a list of who he would consider nominating as a justice should he become president and get that chance.
'He must create a list, like I did!' Trump tweeted. 'Always considered most important Presidential decision. Voter's entitled to know!!!!'
Two Supreme Court Justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, were nominated and confirmed under Trump. If Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, she would be the unprecedented third nominee to make in through in Trump's first term.
His tweet storm included reupping attacks on the would-be second debate moderator, C-SPAN's Steve Scully – who he claims is a 'Biden lover.'
He also took aim at the small turnout for Biden's campaign event in Toledo, Ohio on Monday and accused the presidential candidate of seeming sick and playing with his mask.
The president claims he tested negative for coronavirus two days in a row after first testing positive overnight on October 1. Trump spent three nights at Walter Reed Medical Center and after a few days back at the White House claimed he was 'cured' of the virus and is now 'immune.'
Medical professionals are unsure so far if COVID-19 antibodies make a person immune from catching the disease again.
During Trump's rally in Florida Monday night, he mocked his Democrat rival for stating he was 'running for Senate' – using the momentary lapse as more evidence of his claim that Biden is unfit for office.
Trump, 74, has made the age and frequent gaffes of Biden, 77, a recurrent line of attack in his campaign against the former vice president.
