As the race for who will occupy the White House in 2024 gathers momentum, former United States President, Donald Trump, has described his successor, Joe Biden as a “dangerous idiot.”
Trump was reacting to a gaffe Biden made during his Independence Day address on Tuesday.
The US President had said Russian President, Vladimir Putin, was “losing the war in Iraq” when he meant to say Ukraine.
The Russia-Ukraine war is an ongoing international conflict between both countries, which started in February 24, 2022.
Asked if Putin had been weakened by the brief uprising led by a mercenary chief whose forces had been fighting alongside Russian soldiers against Ukraine, Biden said: “It’s hard to tell really. But he’s clearly losing the war in Iraq. He’s losing the war at home and he has become a bit of a pariah around the world. And it’s not just NATO, it’s not just the European Union. It’s Japan, it’s 40 nations.”
Reacting, Trump, a 2024 Republican presidential hopeful, took to his social media site, Truth Social, to criticise his rival.
“When Biden said twice that Putin is ‘losing the war in Iraq,’ everyone knew by confirmation that we have a confirmed and very dangerous idiot in the White House,” the former president wrote.
