President Donald Trump denied Tuesday that he had a “series of mini-strokes” several months ago that resulted in him seeking treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
“It never ends! Now they are trying to say that your favorite President, me, went to Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a series of mini-strokes,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
“Never happened to THIS candidate – FAKE NEWS. Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party!” he added, alluding to his frequent claims that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s mental acuity is somehow lacking.
Beyond pointing to Biden’s occasionally gaffe-prone speaking style, Trump has never offered proof of any cognitive deficiency on Biden’s part.
