The speech of former-President Donald Trump was interrupted as a result of a medical emergency among the attendees.
Prior to the Republican state primary in Nevada on February 8th, Trump gave a speech in Las Vegas , where he pushed for the implementation of mandatory cognitive evaluations for anyone aspiring to hold political posts.
The cognitive acuity of President Joe Biden has undergone thorough examination in the context of politics, since he has displayed multiple lapses and verbal errors during his presidency.
Trump momentarily halted his speech, gestured towards an individual in the audience, and requested “Medical. Medical please,” going on, “Are they OK? Doctor in the house, thank you.”
“I love those people, you know they’re waiting outside for 10 hours ,12 hours? I love you, darling. We don’t want to see anybody, even the other side, we don’t want to see them hurt, he went on.
He acknowledged the elevated temperature outdoors prior to once again expressing appreciation to the medical personnel for their aid. After a few minutes, he proceeded with the speech, saying: “Very well, let us commence.”
During another segment of the event, Trump openly confronted Biden.
“I really believe it’s important,” Trump began. “I don’t know. They say it’s not constitutional. I don’t know why.
They say it’s not constitutional to take an aptitude or cognitive test, but I think anybody running for president — that includes vice president and maybe even some other positions — I think taking certain tests … would be a good thing, personally.
Not based on age, I don’t care if you’re 35 years old, but we want intelligent people. Now, that’s not a pure sign of intelligence, but we want people that are intelligent.”
Trump went on:
“Only about 2% in this room can do it, but I did it. I did it very easily, but I got mocked. They said, ‘Oh, that’s so easy.’ It’s not easy. It’s not easy — go home and try doing it, OK?”
“You would be amazed at how many people would fail it. How do you think he’d do on a test? He might not get that first question right.”
Subsequently, he directed his focus towards the challenges occurring at the southern border.
“When I’m president, instead of trying to send Texas a restraining order, I will send them reinforcements,” the president said to fans at Big League Dreams sports park in Las Vegas.
“Instead of fighting border states, I will use every resource, tool, and authority of the U.S. president to defend the United States of America from this horrible invasion that is taking place right now,” he declared.
From my time on the border near Lukeville, Arizona. The port of entry closed because so many illegal aliens were there. Mostly male illegal aliens from the African countries of Senegal and Guinea which are majority Islamic. Tensions were very high because people tried to cut in… pic.twitter.com/COoB6te6AE

If he regains the presidency, he stated that he is going to “deploy all necessary military and law enforcement resources to seal up the final section of the border.”
“We built over 500 miles of wall,” he added. “Usually, you like to know the other side, and you like to know where the other side’s coming from. Nobody to this day can explain why this open wound is good for our country. With the Hispanic vote, we’re doing better now than the Democrat Party. We’re going to repeal the invasion.”
According to his statement, upon assuming office, he described the border situation as chaotic. However, he implemented numerous measures to address the issue, to the extent that he was unable to utilize it as a campaign topic in 2020.
“I didn’t have the border to run on because I did such a good job with the border that the border wasn’t an issue.
I did such a good job. I took it out of play. And now I’m saying the border is in play like it’s never been in play before because what they’ve done is they’ve taken all of the things that I did to make it so good.
Literally, we couldn’t put it in a speech. Nobody wanted to hear about the border. We had no border problem.”
“Crooked Joe Biden is fighting Texas to tear down our beautiful border security down there.”
“There has never been a country where millions and millions of people can flow in with no vetting, no checking, no nothing.”
“We don’t know who they are. We don’t know where they come from, and we have no idea what we’re doing with our country. Our country’s going to hell because of incompetent or bad people.”
He expressed gratitude to Texas Governor Greg Abbott for using the invasion clause to defend his state.
Prior to the event, in response to Biden’s request for additional authority for managing the border disaster, which he already possesses as president, Trump criticized Biden for his deceptive contention.
Trump issued a stern warning against the budget deal on his social media platform, Truth Social.
“Just 3 years ago we had the strongest and safest Border in U.S. History. Today we have a catastrophe waiting to happen. It is the WORST BORDER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, an open wound in our once great Country. TERRORISTS ARE POURING IN, UNCHECKED, FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. There is now a 100% chance that there will be MAJOR TERROR ATTACKS IN THE USA. CLOSE THE BORDER!” Trump stated emphatically.
“A BAD BORDER DEAL IS FAR WORSE THAN NO BORDER DEAL,” the former president warned.
