In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Donald Trump somehow managed to mix up a proposed trade deal called NAFTA with the military alliance called NATO. The former president, who is just four years younger than the cognitively deficient Joe Biden, boasted that countries learned “not to mess around” with him on trade deals.
“Did they fear me? I suspect they did,” Trump said.
“Putin said, ‘Man, you are killing me, especially about Nord Stream.’ And I stopped it. It was stopped cold. And I told other countries, ‘If you go into the Nord Stream, you are not going to do any business with the United States of America,’ meaning rip us off on trade because a lot of them have ripped us off. I made a lot of great deals on trade, though. I changed a lot of those deals where it was a bad deal for us and now it’s good, like USMCA with NATO. I got rid of NATO and built USMCA. I made a great trade deal with China. Our farmers, to this day they made tremendous money because of the deal,” Trump bragged.
Hannity didn’t even attempt to correct Trump’s mix-up, in which he was thinking of the NAFTA trade deal that he scuttled in favor of the United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement (USMCA).
Ironically, the conversation turned to Joe Biden’s cognitive struggles.
“I would like to see it for anybody running for president, taking a cognitive test,” Trump said. “You know they do it in China, but it’s done in a different way. They have a caste system. And the smartest person gets to the top,” Trump said.
That’s not quite how it works in China, but a cognitive test might be appropriate for 80-year-old and 76-year-old candidates who apparently cannot distinguish between a trade deal and a military alliance, or remember what they ate for dinner.
Trump took a cognitive test ahead of the 2020 presidential election, where he infamously repeated “Person, woman, man, camera, TV,” a test he insisted was very difficult.

It’s sad that this country can’t elect young people as presidents (except for Obama)
This sort of explains why polls show that most Americans prefer the next president be someone who is not well behind retirement age. The Brits can get away with have an elderly monarch since they have a bunch of young people running the government.

Actually he does correct him at 29 seconds in that video
Totally agree with CA that its inexplicable why a great country such as ours cannot put forward any of the younger and talented individuals on BOTH sides of the aisle who advocate for their core policy beliefs in a passionate but civil manner. The geriatric options we may have in 2024 are not only sad but dangerous.
It’s not any worse than SLEEPY JOE SAYIN THAT KAMALA IS PREZ!
Mistakes happen, it’s ok…..
One has to wonder where YWN lifted this story from because they didn’t bother giving an appropriate byline.
To me it looks like the Washington Compost or some other left-wing rag that is seemingly just as happy when the current occupier of the White House stumbles, can’t remember anything, or in general doesn’t know what the heck he’s talking about.
Btw @akuperma I’m not sure how you are statement coincides with the fact that President Trump is way ahead in the polls, the reliable pools when it comes to presidential preferences based on current people who are running or they think are running? You may want to check what you think people want and then perhaps not project your feelings on everybody else.
@coffee addict, lay off the caffeine. We can elect anyone over age 35 per hour constitution. However, experience is a very good thing to have. As President Trump showed us, it’s not necessarily political, direct political experience, that one needs to be a good president and to get a job done. You mentioned Obama who was younger, but dude had no experience. He was in the Senate for a year or so before becoming president. Before that he hardly had any experience at all, which has left us as he was, was probably a very good thing cuz he didn’t get a chance to @#@$& more things up.. but overall as president, we are suffering till this very day because of it and I’m sure we’re going to continue to suffer especially with his ObamaDoesn’tCare.
This looks like a typical AP propaganda piece.
He mistakenly said NATO instead of NAFTA, so he is now “confused”?
“Journalism” has fallen so, so far.
His Most Eminent Duckness is sounding more and more like Joe Biden.
Trump has not learned anything since about the 4th grade. His problem is stupidity, not senility.
YWN why do you lie? Hannity did correct him. You are becoming more and more amateur by the day
he mistakenly said NATO instead of NAFTA
anyone watching would know he meant NAFTA
BS: Do you really believe he knows the difference between NAFTA and NATO?
We clearly hear Hannity correcting him and saying NAFTA, so what will it take for YW to correct their mistake?
Based on his actions while in the White House, he most obviously does.
