President Trump came-out swinging against former Vice President Joe Biden Tuesday; labeling the Democratic frontrunner a “mentally weak Dummy” who will be “easy to beat” during the 2020 race for the White House.
“When a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, he’s in trouble. Now, I have to tell you, he’s a different guy. He looks different than he used to, he acts different then he used to. He’s even slower than he used to be. So, I don’t know,” said Trump. “But when he mentions my name that many times I guess I should be complimented.”
“Joe Biden thought that China was not a competitor of ours. Joe Biden is a dummy,” added the President. “’I like running against people that are weak mentally.”
"Joe Biden is a dummy. Joe Biden thought that China wasn't a competitor," Trump said.

Biden was mocked on both sides of the political aisle over the weekend; with pundits pointing out his “lackluster” schedule and his ongoing “bromance” with Barack Obama.
“Joe Biden found himself mocked over the weekend for his corny effort to tie himself to former President Barack Obama, while also coming under criticism from other presidential candidates for skipping the biggest Iowa campaign event of the cycle so far,” reports Fox News.
Biden marked ‘Best Friends Day’ last Friday by posting a pair of “friendship bracelets” donning both their names.
“This is a joke, right?” asked former senior presidential advisor David Axelrod.
This is a joke, right?

“It turns out, the bracelet itself was: BuzzFeed produced a sympathetic and playful video in 2016 of Obama encouraging people to register to vote, showing the president jokingly making the bracelet,” adds Fox.
Nearly 20 Democratic candidates descended on Iowa over the weekend to speak at party fundraiser. Notably absent from the event? Joe Biden.
“When I saw the program for today, I thought the same thing you all did, which is this: Joe Biden must really not like to travel,” said entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a Democratic candidate.
Biden claims he skipped the event to attend the graduation of his granddaughter.
