Trump’s Rambling Speech Fuels Questions About His Cognitive Abilities

During a recent speech in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump exhibited moments of confusion and incoherence, raising questions about his mental state and cognitive abilities.
Trump’s speech, where he appeared to lose track of his thoughts, has ignited discussions about his health and fitness for public office.

At the beginning of his speech, Trump talked about implementing strong protections against banks and regulators attempting to “de-bank” individuals. Still, he soon veered off track, leaving his audience perplexed.


Trump’s speech was disjointed as he continued, discussing political beliefs and perceived attempts to take away rights and the country.

His remarks included references to all-electric cars, leading to confusion among listeners.

Feeling Better

Amid his speech, Trump made a puzzling statement, asserting that he is cognitively better than he was two decades ago, without providing any clear reasoning for this claim.

Journalist Tim O’Brien, who interacted with Trump two decades ago, contradicted the former president’s assertion.
O’Brien’s past experiences with Trump led him to believe that Trump’s cognitive abilities were not strong then and have not improved since.

Dubious Claims

Before losing his train of thought, Trump boasted about acing a test designed to detect early signs of dementia.
His description of the test involving giraffes, tigers, and whales left many wondering about his understanding of the examination.

In November, Trump released a vague health report lacking specific details like weight, blood pressure, or medications. However, it claimed his cognitive exams were “exceptional.”

Critics contend that Trump is experiencing physical and cognitive decline, with some likening his speech to that of a novice comedian performing for a small, inebriated audience.

Outlandish Claims

In 2015, Trump’s physician asserted he would be the healthiest president ever elected, and later, his White House physician suggested he could have lived to be 200 with a better diet.

Discrepancies in Trump’s reported height and weight have been noted, including conflicting information provided during bookings in Manhattan and Georgia, further eroding trust in his claims.

Unfair Comparisons

Trump has consistently mocked President Biden’s age and occasional verbal missteps, but this tactic has been criticized as Trump himself has faced challenges in delivering accurate speeches.

In the latter part of 2023, Trump made several inaccurate statements, including claims of defeating former President Obama in an election, misnaming a town, and repeatedly mispronouncing the name of a group.

Despite concerns about Trump’s cognitive abilities, polls indicate that voters still perceive President Biden’s age and cognitive health as more pressing issues.

Approximately two-thirds of voters believe Biden is too old to seek re-election, compared to half who hold the same view about Trump.
