Biden has once again referred to Donald Trump as the President. After Biden’s speech about the January 6th riots, a reporter approached Biden and asked him why he did;t call out President Trump by name. Biden quickly replied, “I did not want to turn it into a contemporary political battle between me and the president. It’s way beyond that. It’s way beyond that”.
Watch the moment he said it here:

Business Insider reported that within Biden’s 25-minute speech he didn’t even mention Trump’s name once but rather referred to Trump as president and former president instead. Biden during his January 6th speech spent most of his talking about Democratic talking points about how Trump incited an “insurrection”.
The Daily Mail reported Trump’s response to Biden’s claims:
‘Biden, who is destroying our Nation with insane policies of open Borders, corrupt Elections, disastrous energy policies, unconstitutional mandates, and devastating school closures, used my name today to try to further divide America,’ Trump said in a series of statements.
Biden is working hard to try and deflect the incompetent job he is doing, and has done, on the horrible Afghanistan withdrawal (surrender), the Borders, COVID, Inflation, loss of Energy Independence, and much more. Everything he touches turns to failure. That’s what you get when you have a rigged Election,’ Trump said.
This isn’t Biden’s first time calling Trump the President since he was inaugurated either. Biden has on several occasions called Trump the President. At one point in time, he even called Kamala Harris the President instead of the Vice President, take a look:
Biden’s cognitive abilities have been a major problem during his first years of presidency. All jokes aside, people make mistakes we get that, but the leader of the free world shouldn’t make mistakes constantly because then it portrays the United States as a weak nation. China and Russia are both sniffing out that there’s blood in the water and are pushing the Biden admin to their limits when it comes to the Ukraine and Taiwan.
Former White House Physician Rep. Ronny Jackson who served under Bush, Obama, and Trump was quoted saying:
“All I know is that he’s got age-related cognitive decline, right. He is not mentally fit right now, he’s 78 years old and you can see it. You don’t need to be a physician to look at him and to look at his behavior and some of the other stuff, just the way he shuffles away, stares off into space.”
“I know what that job entails, both physically and mentally, and how demanding it is. And I can tell you right now, I’m 100% sure that Joe Biden is incapable of doing that job.”
Trump aced his cognitive test with ease but Biden however is avoiding any type of cognitive test because he knows and the world knows if he was to take one then there’s a high possibility he would not be able to pass it. Many lawmakers such as Rep. Madison Cawthron has called for Kamla Harris to invoke the 25 Amendment to get rid of Biden due to his health decline.
