Chris Wallace Presses Trump on Cognitive Test He Says He Passed: 'It's Not the Hardest Test'


President Donald Trump is challenging presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden (D) to take the same cognitive test he claims he “aced.”

During an interview on Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday,” Trump blasted Biden’s competency and suggested the former vice president could not pass the same cognitive test he took.

Wallace showed Trump a new poll that found a majority of respondents said Biden has the mental soundness to be president, leading Trump by 4%.

“I tell you what, let’s take a test, let’s take a test right now. Let’s go down, Joe and I. We’ll take a test. Let him take the same test that I took,” Trump said.

Wallace interjected to say that he took the test that Trump took, and, “It’s not the hardest test … There’s a picture, and it says, ‘What’s that?’ And it’s an elephant.”

However, Trump insisted that Wallace’s description of the test was “all misrepresentation.”

“Yes, the first few questions are easy. But I’ll bet you couldn’t even answer the last five questions. I’ll bet you couldn’t. They get very hard,” Trump said. 

When Wallace noted that one of the questions asks the test-taker to count back from 100 by seven, Trump said, “You couldn’t answer many of the questions.”

However, when asked for an example of one of the questions, Trump said he would get Wallace a copy of the test. He added, “But I guarantee you that Joe Biden could not answer those questions. And I answered all 35 questions correctly.”

Trump has repeatedly sought to raise questions about Biden’s physical and mental health as polls have regularly found him trailing the former vice president. 

Trump has previously challenged Biden to take a cognitive test, as IJR reported. 

In a tweet, Trump wrote, “He cannot pass the test I ‘aced.’ He should give it a try!”
