Biden Says Non-US Citizen ‘Might Be Able’ To Run For President, ‘Who Knows?’

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to suggest that a non-citizen "might be able" to run for the office of President of the United States of America, during a town hall even in Iowa on Tuesday.

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to suggest that a non-citizen “might be able” to run for the office of President of the United States of America, during a town hall even in Iowa on Tuesday.

The former vice president struggled to appear mentally sharp during the event on Tuesday as he repeatedly mixed up countries, claimed wages are down when they are up, and appeared to suggest that a non-citizen could run for president.

I think you could beat him,” Biden told a man in the audience.

The man responded, “I don’t think I could, I’m not an American citizen.”

Biden responded, “Well, you might be able to, who knows.”

Biden was later confronted by a voter who encouraged him to at least recognize things that were good with the economy under Trump.

There’s only one way you can win this,” the voter said to Biden. “When you’re on the stage with Donald Trump, you’re going to say, ‘Donald, you have done some good things, I’m going to take what’s good that you did, I’m going to add to it, and I’m going to do it with dignity.’

Not everything that the other side [does] is bad,” the voter continued. “Not everything about the Democrat ideas are good. There’s good in both.

You gotta give me a couple of the good things,” Biden responded.

The good things: the unemployment is good now,” the voter responded.

“Yeah, unemployment is good but wages are down,” Biden falsely claimed as wages have dramatically increased under the Trump administration.

Come on, accept the good,” the voter responded. “You said there is no good on the other side?”

I didn’t say that,” Biden claimed.

Name one thing that’s good from the other side,” the voter pressed.

“[Mumbling] I can’t think of anything off the top of my head,” Biden said as he quickly tried to move away from the voter.

Biden has repeatedly struggled in recent days with comments that he has made on the campaign trail.

On Tuesday, Biden said in regards to who he will pick as he vice president running mate, assuming that he wins the party’s nomination, that “it has to be demonstrated that whoever I pick is two things.”

One, is capable of being president, because I’m an old guy,” Biden said as the crowd laughed. “No, I’m serious. Look, thank God I’m in great health, I work out, no I’m serious, you know I work out every morning. I’m in good shape.”

On Saturday, Biden struggled to remember when the last time was that he was elected, saying it was “January of 2012, actually 2013, no wait a minute, we got elected in 2012, 2010 or 13.
