On Thursday, President Trump said presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden has been “brainwashed” by the “radical left.”
“Joe is just, look let’s face it, he’s been taken over by the radical left,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “He has no clue what they’re doing.”
Trump: ‘They brainwashed’ Biden’
“They brainwashed him, he doesn’t know where he is, he doesn’t know what he’s doing and our country will suffer. Our stock markets will crash, bad things will happen,” Trump said.
Trump also referred to a “deal” he says Biden made with self-described socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, citing the Democratic platform released Wednesday by the Biden-Sanders “Unity Task Force,” which laid out recommendations on some key progressive issues, but didn’t go all in on Sanders’s radical agenda.
Trump said Biden is “worse than Bernie Sanders at his best.”

Trump on Biden: ‘He has been completely taken over, I think it’s because he doesn’t understand what’s going on’
“He has been completely taken over, I think it’s because he doesn’t understand what’s going on,” Trump said.
The 74-year-old Trump dismissed worries that Biden, 77, isn’t fit for president due to his age. The president said he knows “other people in their late 80s, early 90s” that are “100 percent mentally sharp.”
But Trump did say Biden should take a cognitive test, which the President claims he “aced.”

“I took one very recently when the radical left was saying, ‘Is he all there, is he all there?’ I proved it, because I aced it. He should take the very same test,” Trump said.
Team Biden campaign did not immediately respond to Trump’s attack on their candidate.
Likewise, Biden has also questioned Trump’s cognitive ability and whether or not he was fit for office.
