    In March, US President Donald Trump tweeted that Joe Biden "doesn't know where he is, or what he's doing", adding that he doesn't think the presumptive Democratic presidential hopeful "even knows what office he's running for".

    President Donald Trump has hit out at presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden over his apparent slip of the tongue pertaining to the US COVID-19 death toll, which Biden said stands at more than 120 million.

    In reality, the disease has claimed the lives of over 125,000 US citizens, according to Johns Hopkins University.

    Trump tweeted on Friday that if he “ever said something so mortifyingly stupid, the Fake News Media would come down” on him “with a vengeance. He blamed Biden for saying what POTUS claimed was “beyond a normal mistake”.

    Netizens immediately responded to Trump’s remarks by slamming the US president over his own blunders related to the problem of the coronavirus in the country.

    “I'd rather have a candidate for president misspeak and say 120 million died, than have a president that actually mishandled the pandemic and 120 thousand+ have died”, one user wrote on their Twitter page.

    The message was echoed by that of another netizen, who wondered what “happened to those 15 [COVID-19] cases you [Trump] promised would be down to zero back in February?”

    On the other hand, some preferred to take POTUS’ side, tweeting sarcastically about “breaking news that Joe Biden has tested positive for the Moronavirus” and that “to govern a country it is necessary to be 100% lucid”.

    Trump has repeatedly quipped at Biden’s physical condition, tweeting in March that the former vice president "doesn't know where he is, or what he's doing", and adding that he doesn't think the presumptive Democratic presidential hopeful "even knows what office he's running for".

    Biden became the presumptive Democratic nominee to face Trump in the 3 November presidential election following the withdrawal of all rival Democratic Party presidential candidates, including Bernie Sanders.
