Trump Makes Bombshell Announcement – ‘For The Good Of the Country’

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

President Joe Biden has received a challenge from former President Donald Trump: engage in a discussion with him “for the good of the country.”

The challenge coincided with the release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s shocking report, which exposed that Biden mishandled classified material. Hur also revealed that the current president was unable to recall important dates and events, including his time as vice president and the death of his son Beau from brain cancer.

In an interview on his radio program, the former president expressed skepticism about Biden’s capacity to continue running. Still, he urged Biden to participate in a debate “right now,” restating an earlier invitation to speak with reporters after the White House declared that Biden would skip the game for the second year running.

“And I don’t think he’s going to run. I don’t know if it’s donors or otherwise. It might be his family. It might be something,” Trump said. “I don’t think he’s gonna run, but I’d like to call for, immediately, debates. I’d like to debate him now because we should debate. We should debate for the good of the country. So I will officially go on your show…”

“Oh, wow! Look at that! We’re breaking news: Mr. President Donald J. Trump calls for debates against Joe Biden. I mean, that’s great. We’re breaking some news here!” Bongino said in response.

“I am officially doing that. I also put out, you probably noticed, that I’ll take his spot at the Super Bowl if they want. We’ll get very good ratings,” Trump added.

Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham and contributor and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich discussed Hur’s findings on Thursday night. At one point in the program, Ingraham noted that Democrats were already disputing Hur’s assessments of Biden’s mental capacity by remarkably asserting that he showed no signs of weakness while they were present.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) remarked, “I’ve talked to him for hours on end as recently as a couple of months ago,” adding that he is “as sharp as ever,” while Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) told CNN that he had not observed any indications that Biden had “poor memory.” Ingraham reported.

“I mean, come on, Newt,” Ingraham exclaimed, before continuing:

I have it on good authority…a friend of mine was in the White House a couple of weeks ago, and she is not a Trump fan, let me just say this… She was up close and personal with the president, and was shocked — her words were ‘shocked’ about his state.

WATCH:

Hur’s proof of Biden’s significant decline in mental capacity will also fuel disputes among the vast majority of Americans, who according to the latest polls do not think the president is capable of serving out his current term, much less another four.

Just the news notes:

Hur’s 388-page report released Thursday may have spared Biden the spectacle of a criminal prosecution similar to that his Justice Department imposed on Donald Trump, but it delivered a devastating blow to the 46th president’s re-election hopes by going out of its way to explain criminal charges weren’t levied in part because jurors might see Biden as a dottering, forgetful old man incapable of criminal intent.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote in explaining his rationale for refusing prosecution. “…It would be difficult to convince a jury they should convict him – by then a former president who will be at least well into his eighties – of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”

“Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen,” the report concluded.

Hur added for good measure he believed Biden suffered from “diminished faculties in advancing age.”
