Former United States President Donald Trump will soon be challenging sitting President Joe Biden in the 2024 general presidential election. But before we get to that point, it sounds like Trump has a very different challenge he’d like to issue the current president.
Donald Trump seems to be bothered by a recent poll from the New York Times that found more than half of Americans don’t think he’s mentally capable of running the country as a president. And based on a recent post on Truth Social, Trump seems intent on proving that he is more capable than Joe Biden, and he wants to challenge him to a mental and physical test to prove it.
“I will name the place and the test, and it will be a tough one,” Trump wrote. “Nobody will come even close to me! We can also throw some physical activity into it. I just won the Senior Club Championship at a big golf club, with many very good players. To do so you need strength, accuracy, touch and, above all, mental toughness.”
It’s certainly a wild challenge from Trump, and it led to plenty of reactions on social media.
What a sad pathetic little man. https://t.co/vmszBkAwaK

Does Trump have Dementia?
He wants Biden & Rupert Murdoch to take a "mental acuity test" of his choice.
“It will be a tough one. Nobody will come even close to me!” Trump claims.
Experts say that mental acuity tests are not hard IF no dementia exists.https://t.co/xKPPugwGY7

So a test that helps diagnose serious brain damage Trump sees as a badge of honor. It's pretty laughable. https://t.co/i8sPF3uJjt

It’s not clear what exactly this test would include, but based on Trump’s affinity for golf and his recent comments blasting Biden’s golfing ability, it’s a good bet golf will be included.
