Trump said Biden was showing signs of dementia and joked that he would end up in a nursing home and Vice President Kamala Harris will have to complete his term. “Did something happen to Joe Biden?” an August attack announcement wonders
Appearing on CBS 60 minutes earlier Sunday, Biden, who would become the oldest president if he won the election, rocked Trump’s attacks on his mental agility.
“Hey, the same guy who thought the 911 attack was a 7-Eleven attack, is he talking about dementia?” Biden said.

“I’m happy to have this comparison.”
To date, more than 60 million Americans have voted in the race, a record pace that could result in the highest turnout in more than a century, according to data from the US Elections Project on Monday.
The tally is the latest sign of intense interest in the contest between Trump and Biden, as well as voters’ desire to reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19, which has killed an estimated 225,000 people across the United States.
Democrats hold a significant advantage in early voting due to their adoption of postal voting, which Republicans have historically voiced in large numbers, but which they have avoided amid repeated and unsubstantiated attacks by Trump who claims that the system is subject to widespread fraud.

U.S. voters have already voted earlier in this presidential campaign than they did in 2016, when they crossed the 47 million mark earlier this month, the data showed.
