    Once again branding Biden as "Sleepy Joe" and claiming that he "never takes questions", Trump also argued that "his reporters have zero drive".

    With the 2020 election drawing near, US President Donald Trump has launched a fresh verbal jab against his Democratic rival Joe Biden, pointing to the latter's handling of feedback during a recent campaign event held by Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris.

    In a tweet, Trump shared a video that appears to show press being rushed away during said event, with POTUS arguing that "Sleepy Joe never takes questions".

    "Also, his reporters have zero drive. Why can’t my reporters behave like that?" Trump mused, adding that "something is going on!"

    ​Trump's remark elicited a somewhat mixed reaction among social media users, as while some proceeded to bash Biden, others seemed to reserve their mockery for the US president himself.

    ​According to Fox News, both Biden and Harris ended up facing a backlash over "not taking questions from the press", with journalists and commentators "on both sides of the aisle” presenting a "rare, unified condemnation of the candidates evading questions".

    "We keep pressing the Biden campaign. There needs to be more questions from reporters," CNN anchor Brianna Keilar reportedly said.
