WASHINGTON, DC: A video showing President Joe Biden struggling to climb into an SUV has ignited a new controversy in the lead-up to the election rematch between Biden and former president Donald Trump in November.

The video was shared by the Trump campaign in response to the White House's dismissal of similar clips as "cheap fakes."

Donald Trump's campaign goes on the offensive

The "Trump War Room" Twitter account posted the video on X, highlighting Biden's difficulty getting into his vehicle.

Trump campaign senior advisor Chris LaCivita commented on the post, "Here is another 'cheap fake' video," while another senior advisor, Jason Miller, asked, "Is it ableist to ask why the F Joe Biden can't even get into a car without help?"

The video shows Biden entering his armored SUV after landing in Delaware for a trip to his beach house. A Secret Service agent assists the president, who carefully positions himself and speaks to another person in the vehicle. Biden often opts for the smaller SUV, rather than "The Beast", his armored limousine, when visiting his Rehoboth Beach residence.


This incident is part of a broader strategy by the Trump campaign to raise doubts about Biden's age and mental capacity. Just five months before Election Day, several clips of Biden stuttering or struggling with words have flooded social media.

The Trump camp is laying the groundwork ahead of the first presidential debate, where Biden, 81, and Trump, 78, will face off, giving millions of Americans the opportunity to compare the two candidates directly.

The Biden administration has faced several viral clips that opponents have used to question his fitness for office.

These include footage of Biden appearing to "freeze" during public events, such as greeting a parachutist while walking away from other world leaders at the G7 summit and standing motionless for a few moments during a White House Juneteenth celebration.


Another widely circulated clip showed Biden standing still while former president Barack Obama pointed and waved to cheering supporters, then guided Biden to the exit.


The White House has condemned these tactics, with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre describing the videos as "cheap fakes".

During an MSNBC interview, she said, "It's also very insulting to the folks, the viewers who are watching it. And so we believe we have to call that out. We've been calling it cheap fakes. That is something that came directly from the media outlets in calling it that, the fact-checkers calling it that. And so we're certainly going to be really, really clear about that as well. And calling it out from where we are, from where we stand."

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the SUV video on Wednesday, a federal holiday that Biden signed into law.

Despite the focus on Biden, Trump has also experienced some minor gaffes himself. At a recent campaign rally, Trump demanded that Biden take a cognitive test but went on to misname former White House physician and Texas Representative Dr Ronny Jackson as "Ronny Johnson".


Public opinion appears to be considerably shifting, with a growing share of US adults expressing doubts about Biden's mental acuity.

An AP-NORC poll released last month found that roughly 6 in 10 Americans are not confident in Biden’s ability to serve effectively as president, a slight increase from January 2022. Additionally, only 38% of US adults approve of Biden's job performance, with 61% disapproving.

The poll also indicated broad discontent on issues like the economy, immigration, and foreign policy, PBS reported.

Biden slammed following video by Donald Trump's campaign

President Joe Biden was trolled on social media after the Donald Trump campaign shared a clip of the former struggling to get into an SUV.

"The problem is that we have a cheap fake president," one social media user posted on X.

"'Cheap fake' Joe!" another chimed in.

"We're doomed," someone else lamented.

"It's only the truth this man is not well and I blame the hungry elite Jill Biden for displaying this muppet as ok," one comment read.

"Does the Biden Admin think everyone can’t believe their eyes or ears and nobody will verify the videos? They’re wrong," another user said.
