Trump says cognitively impaired Biden will lead us into WORLD WAR TWO – during gaffe-laden speech in which he appeared to say he was leading OBAMA in the polls
Donald Trump warned in a gaffe-laden speech on Friday that Biden with a “cognitive disability” will lead the US into “World War II” if he is re-elected to the top job.
While addressing the Pray Vote Stand summit in Washington, the former president apparently referred to “World War III,” not the conflict that ended in 1945.
“We have a man who is totally corrupt and the worst president in the history of our country, who is cognitively impaired, incapable of leadership, and who is now responsible for dealing with Russia and a possible nuclear war.” , he said.
‘Think about it. If we had to rely on this man, we would very quickly find ourselves in World War II, which is far more devastating than any war.
‘If that happens, there will never be a war; there will never be a war like this. It will destroy everything there is, everyone, it will destroy every country.”

In another attempt, he appeared to suggest he was beating former President Barack Obama in the 2024 polls, but he was able to correct himself.
“As you know, corrupt Joe Biden and the radical left thugs have armed law enforcement to arrest their main political opponent, and under the leadership of many, including Obama – I’ll tell you what,” he said.
“Look at Obama and look at some of the things he’s done, it’s the same thing.”
Just last week, Trump told Megyn Kelly that Biden is not “too old” for another term — he is simply “grossly incompetent.”
With just three years separating the two 2024 frontrunners, many are concerned about the increasing age of presidential candidates — as well as other leaders in Congress.
Polls show that more than three-quarters of Americans believe Biden, 80, is too old to stay in office for another four years.
But Trump told Kelly in a SiriusXM interview that age is not the problem.
‘I have a lot of friends in their eighties. I have friends… who are in their nineties and they are sharp as a tack. Just, I mean, I would say, about what they used to be. No, not old. He is incompetent,” Trump said of Biden.

Trump is the oldest president after Biden. He was inaugurated at the age of 70. He defeated former President Ronald Reagan by about a year.
“Age is interesting because some people are very sharp and some people lose it, but you also lose it at 40 and 50,” Trump told Kelly. ‘But no, he’s not too old at all. He’s downright incompetent.’
“Look at some of the great world leaders, they were in their eighties and they did – I mean, Churchill, so many people. They were phenomenal in the ’80s. You know, it’s great wisdom if you’re not in a position like him, but if you go back 25 years, he wasn’t that sharp either.”
2024 Republican hopefuls, including Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, came to Washington on Friday to participate in a series of rallies, hoping to win over evangelical Republicans, a voting bloc likely to play a crucial role play in selecting a presidential candidate for 2024.
Trump courted evangelical Christians and women at two back-to-back events in Washington on Friday — groups whose loyalties to him once seemed contradictory but have now become part of his base.
The legal, moral and sexual escapades of the scandal-plagued front-runner for 2024 Republican presidential nominee have earned him indictments, impeachments and public scorn in many quarters.
But support among his devotees remains strong.
Trump is a rock star among white evangelical Protestants, 84 percent of whom voted for him in 2020. Trump is also holding his own among women, after winning 44 percent of their votes in the last election, according to the Pew Research Center.
“These elections will decide whether America will be ruled by Marxist, fascist, communist tyrants who want to destroy the Judeo-Christian heritage,” Trump, 77, said at the summit, “or whether America will be saved by God-fearing freedom.” loving patriots like all the people in this room.”
“Is he a flawed individual? Certainly. But most Christians will say: we are all sinners. Jesus is not on the ballot,” said William Wan, a 60-year-old Catholic engineer from Winter Garden, Florida, who attended the summit.
Trump’s lead over his Republican rivals is increasing, a new poll shows, with the 91 charges against him only appearing to strengthen his appeal.
A Fox News poll of 1,012 voters, conducted between September 9 and 12, showed Trump now winning 60 percent of support.
His closest rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, had 13 percent.

In January 2020, Donald Trump became the first sitting US president to attend the annual anti-abortion March for Life rally in Washington.
The four criminal cases against Trump have not dented his popularity: In early May, with only one of his four criminal cases filed, Trump led DeSantis by just 49 percent to 19 percent.
The latest poll also shows that Trump’s decision to skip the first Republican primary debate, held on August 23, did not harm him either.
Before the debate, Trump was at 53 percent and DeSantis at 16 percent.
The third-place candidate, political newcomer Vivek Ramaswamy, achieved a stable 11 percent from August to September.
Nikki Haley, Trump’s former UN ambassador and former governor of South Carolina, saw a slight increase in popularity after the debate, from 4 to 5 percent.
Mike Pence and Tim Scott remain at 3 percent, and Chris Christie at 2 percent.
“Unless something changes, this is Trump’s race to lose,” said Daron Shaw, a Republican pollster who co-led the Fox News Poll with Democrat Chris Anderson.
“The question is: How likely is it that something will change enough to shake Republican supporters away from Trump and make them look at someone else?”
