President Donald Trump spent part of his Sunday preparing for his upcoming debate with former Vice President Joe Biden despite publicly ridiculing Biden’s mental acumen at campaign rallies.
“We had a little debate prep before we came here,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday when he appeared Sunday with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
While supporters question whether Biden will even show up at the debate, the president has acknowledged that Biden could emerge from his basement prepared either through performance-enhancing drugs or through years of political experience.
“They said, ‘How do you think he’s going to do in the debate?’” Trump recalled on Friday in a campaign rally in Newport News, Virginia. “I think good. He’s been doing it for 47 years. I think he’s going to do good, I think.”
