    While a number of social media users appeared to express a desire to see Biden accept Trump's challenge, at least one person wondered aloud what would happen if both candidates were to "lose".

    With the presidential election in the United States looming on the horizon, US President Donald Trump has delivered a fresh verbal barb against his likely Democratic rival Joe Biden.

    According to the Washington Post, during a Cabinet Room meeting this month that was "intended as a general update" on Trump’s reelection campaign, the US president mentioned a cognitive screening test he underwent as part of his physical in 2018.

    Then, Trump allegedly said that he thought Biden would never be able to pass said test, and even "suggested challenging" the latter to take it, the newspaper claims citing "people familiar with Trump’s comments, who spoke on condition of anonymity to share private details".

    While Trump has repeatedly described Biden as "Sleepy Joe", The Hill also noted that during an interview with a Boston radio station last month, the president said that Biden is "not as smart as [Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)], and he’s not as quick".

    News of Trump's alleged idea regarding Biden and a cognitive test elicited a rather amused reaction from a number of social media users, many of whom expressed their desire to see it happen.

    ​And at least one netizen wondered aloud what would happen if both candidates were to "lose".
