In an interview with Tucker Carlson on Wednesday, former President Donald Trump came out firing.
The 2024 Republican frontrunner, speaking with Carlson at his Bedminster, New Jersey, resort as an alternative to the party’s first primary debate, participated in the online interview.

Trump questioned Joe Biden’s capacity to serve as president, citing his physical and mental health.
“I think he’s worse mentally than he is physically, and physically he’s not exactly a triathlete. Or any kind of an athlete,” Trump said.

Trump indicated that he observed Vice President Biden laboring to walk to the Marine One helicopter on White House premises.
“He can’t walk to the helicopter,” Trump said. “He can’t lift his feet out of the grass. You know, it’s only 2 inches at the White House, right? That’s not a lot.
“But you watch him and it looks like he’s walking on toothpicks.”
Trump then discussed footage of Biden’s multiple beach vacations.
“And then you see him on the beach where he can’t lift a chair. You know, those chairs are meant to be light, right? They’re like 2 ounces,” Trump said. “He can’t walk through the sand!”
Trump even implied that Biden would be unable to conclude his first tenure in office.
“I don’t think he’s going to make it to the gate, but, you know, you never know,” he said.
