President Trump mocked former Vice President Joe Biden during a Thursday night speech in Las Vegas, Nevada, saying he “can’t put two words together.”
“He’s having a hard time,” Trump said. “He can’t put two words together. You know Joe has really lost it. He’s not the same guy. He used to read off facts and figures, now he can’t do it. You know he’s lost it and he can’t put two words together.”
The president’s comments prompted a chorus of boos from the crowd.
Biden, 77, has a history of stuttering, which he has spoken openly about and used to connect with young people. Biden has long been an advocate for stuttering and has spoken out on the issue in the past.
Trump’s remarks were widely criticized by people on social media, who denounced them as unsympathetic and mocking.
