Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to suggest that a non-citizen “might be able” to run for the office of President of the United States of America, during a town hall even in Iowa on Tuesday.
The former vice president struggled to appear mentally sharp during the event on Tuesday as he repeatedly mixed up countries, claimed wages are down when they are up, and appeared to suggest that a non-citizen could run for president.
“I think you could beat him,” Biden told a man in the audience.
The man responded, “I don’t think I could, I’m not an American citizen.”
Biden responded, “Well, you might be able to, who knows.”
Biden was later confronted by a voter who encouraged him to at least recognize things that were good with the economy under Trump.
“There’s only one way you can win this,” the voter said to Biden. “When you’re on the stage with Donald Trump, you’re going to say, ‘Donald, you have done some good things, I’m going to take what’s good that you did, I’m going to add to it, and I’m going to do it with dignity.’”
“Not everything that the other side [does] is bad,” the voter continued. “Not everything about the Democrat ideas are good. There’s good in both.”
“You gotta give me a couple of the good things,” Biden responded.
“The good things: the unemployment is good now,” the voter responded.
“Come on, accept the good,” the voter responded. “You said there is no good on the other side?”
“I didn’t say that,” Biden claimed.
“Name one thing that’s good from the other side,” the voter pressed.
“[Mumbling] I can’t think of anything off the top of my head,” Biden said as he quickly tried to move away from the voter.
