During his campaign rally on Tuesday evening in Hershey, Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump mocked former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate for constantly forgetting what state he is in.
“Hey, have you ever noticed where Biden keeps saying he’s in the wrong state?” President Trump asked his supporters.
Biden has confused the states of Ohio, Vermont, New Hampshire and Iowa multiple times during his time on the campaign trail.
“What is wrong with this guy? What’s wrong with him?” Trump questioned. “There’s something wrong … how many times can you do that?”
The President then told the crowd that if Biden were elected, he would diminish Pennsylvania workers by shutting down fossil fuel plants.
“The voters of this commonwealth will never ever let that happen,” President Trump said.
President Trump continued by mocking Biden over his debate performance.
“He just raises his hand, he has no clue what he’s doing. Remember [how] he looked?” Trump said while referring to how Biden would raise his hand even if he didn’t know the question that was being asked.

Biden’s age is clearly getting between him and his chances on winning in 2020. If Biden were to win the election in 2020, he would be the oldest President to take office in American history at 78 years old.
According to a new report by Politico, Biden has told his campaign staffers that it is “virtually inconceivable” that he would run for a second term in 2024 if he were to beat President Trump in the upcoming election. If Biden’s age is prohibiting him now, just imagine what it will be like when he is 82 years of age in 2024.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisers and prominent Democrats outside the Biden campaign have recently revived a long-running debate whether Biden should publicly pledge to serve only one term, with Biden himself signaling to aides that he will serve only a single term,” Politico says.
“While the option of making a public pledge remains available, Biden has for now settled on an alternative strategy: quietly indicate that he will almost certainly not run for a second term while declining to make a promise that he and his advisers fear could turn him into a lame duck and sap him of his political capital,” they continued.
According to Politico, “four people who regularly talk to Biden,” revealed that it is “virtually inconceivable that he will run for re-election in 2024.”
By 2024, “he’s going to be 82 years old in four years and he won’t be running for reelection,” an advisor to Biden said.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The decision to leak this inside information, the adviser suggested, is to potentially help Biden among young left-wing voters, effectively providing a tacit promise that Biden will help bring a younger, more diverse figure from the left into office in 2024.
“This makes Biden a good transition figure,” said the adviser. “I’d love to have an election this year for the next generation of leaders, but if I have to wait four years [in order to] to get rid of Trump, I’m willing to do it.”
According to another top adviser for Biden, he plans on finding a strong running mate who can then take the lead in 2024, something he can’t say outright but is making clear internally.
For now, as Politico highlights, Biden is publicly rejecting the notion of a one-term pledge. After saying flatly that will not serve just one term in April, Biden hedged in October, saying that while he wouldn’t promise not to run in 2024, he wasn’t promising to run again then either.
