Haley slams Biden: ‘He sounds like his mind is closing up shop’

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley criticized President Biden’s cognitive abilities in a speech Tuesday, saying, “His thinking seems to shut down the job.”

In a speech in Greenville, South Carolina, ahead of Saturday’s Republican primary, Haley said Biden is hurting his own electoral viability more than any attack by Republicans. He also argued that Republicans should have a competitive nomination process to choose the strongest possible candidate to run against the president in the general election.

“Every time he opens his mouth, it sounds like his heart is closed. The Democratic Party is weakening with Biden’s coronation. The Republican Party will grow stronger through intense competition,” she said. .

Biden faced criticism and concerns about his ability to re-elect after the release of a report by special counsel Robert Hur into his handling of classified documents. Mr. Xu rejected the accusations against Mr. Biden, but called Mr. Biden a “well-meaning old man with a poor memory.”

The report also revealed that Biden mixed up the names of several world leaders, including former French President Francois Mitterrand and current French President Emmanuel Macron, and former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and former German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Ta.

Haley spoke about why she is staying in the Republican presidential race on Tuesday, despite former President Trump having a significant lead in polls. He cited polls showing an overwhelming majority of Americans do not want Trump or Biden to be their party’s nominee.

Her memo about Biden’s mental sharpness came in response to criticism she received from Trump supporters who said she was helping Biden by staying in the race.

He said President Trump staying in the race is helping Biden by potentially making him a better candidate in the general election.

“At the end of the day, the only candidate who is supporting Joe Biden is Donald Trump, because Trump is the only Republican that Biden can beat,” Haley said. “Democrats know that. They’re not even trying to hide their glee going into a showdown with President Trump. They want to win, so they want someone they’ve already defeated many times. President Trump knows it, too. But they don’t want to admit it.”
