President Trump slammed former Vice President Joe Biden after his campaign said he may cut back on his scheduled appearances, following a series of verbal slip-ups.

During his rally in New Hampshire Thursday, the president said Biden has been a “disaster” on the campaign trail. He also said if he had done what Biden did the “fake news” would assail him.

“This is certain. They’re going to cut way back on his appearances. Can you believe it? If I ever did that it would be over the fake news would get us, but we don’t let him get us and it is fake…”

Biden has come under scrutiny over a number of verbal blunders on during his campaign. Recently, the former vice president mistakenly said the shootings in El Paso and Dayton occurred in Michigan and Houston. He also received backlash for proclaiming his support for “truth over facts” during an event in Iowa.
