Former President Donald Trump blasted President Biden for claiming that he left the White House with “no vaccine” — suggesting his successor is “mentally gone” late Wednesday as he refused to rule out a 2024 presidential run.Speaking to Newsmax, Trump made the remarks after being asked if he had seen Biden’s CNN town hall the night before. “Well, I saw that he said there was no vaccine when he came into office, and yet he got a shot before he came into office,” Trump told the network. “It was already in early November when we announced it, but we actually had it substantially before that.” “We were giving millions of shots and millions of doses. So he’s either not telling a truth, or he’s mentally gone, one or the other,” the former president continued. Trump went on to argue that Biden was facing considerable criticism for blaming his predecessor. Former President Donald Trump “I’m the only guy who gets impeached and my numbers go up,” Trump said about his recent polling.

How Trump planned to voice his political views was an open question in the wake of his ban from numerous social media platforms at the end of his presidency, including Twitter. “I really wanted to be somewhat quiet,” he told the network of his tact during early days of the Biden administration, “It hasn’t been that quiet, frankly, but I wanted to be somewhat quiet.” And he said he doesn’t miss Twitter, either. “I understand on Twitter, it’s become very boring and millions of people are leaving. They’re leaving it because it’s not the same, and I can understand that,” he said of the platform. For now, Trump is largely getting his message out by releasing statements through his office, but the former president says he’s “looking at a lot of different things” to stage a social media comeback — including the possibility of creating his own platform. “Twitter, we are looking at a lot of different things, but I really wanted to be somewhat quiet. They wanted me very much on Parler, you know they had a phony report that the man who was in there didn’t – I mean just the opposite, they really wanted me on Parler.” The problem with Parler, a Twitter-like platform for conservatives, was that “mechanically they can’t handle” the levels of traffic that the former president would bring in.
