Donald Trump challenged the current US president to take a cognitive test, but in the next sentence he mixed up the name of his own doctor. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee regularly criticizes Biden for his various gaffes.

Speaking in Detroit, Trump questioned the president's mental acuity. "He doesn't even know what the word 'inflation' means." I think he should take a cognitive test like I did," Trump said, according to Sky News.

A few seconds later, he continued, “Dr. Ronnie Johnson. Does everyone know Ronnie Johnson, the congressman from Texas? He was the White House doctor and he said I was the healthiest president in history, so I liked him right away."

However, he was apparently referring to Ronny Jackson, who was the White House physician during his presidency. Jackson was elected to Congress in 2021 and is one of Trump's most vocal defenders on Capitol Hill.

In 2018, Trump took a cognitive test at his request, Jackson told reporters at the time. The exam is designed to detect early signs of memory loss and other mild cognitive impairments. Trump, who turned 78 on Friday, questioned whether Biden, as an 81-year-old, should even run for a second term.

Biden also mocked Trump's age. "Congratulations from one old man to another." Age is just a number," Biden wrote in a sarcastic post.
