Trump Demands All Presidential Aspirants Submit to a “Mental Competence Test”

Donald Trump, who previously bragged about “acing” a simple cognitive test meant to look for indications of dementia, on Tuesday called for all presidential candidates to pass a “mental competency exam.” Trump stated on his Truth Social platform that “ANYBODY running for the Office of President of the United States should agree to take a full & thorough Mental Capacity Test simultaneously (or before!) with the announcement that he or she is running.” “[And] similarly, albeit to a lesser extent, consent to a test demonstrating your physical fitness for the position. Excellent mental and physical stamina are necessary to be a successful president. If you lack certain abilities or characteristics, you probably won’t succeed. MAGA!”
