Former President Donald Trump said on Tuesday during a town hall-style event in Iowa that he doesn't believe President Joe Biden will be the Democrat nominee in 2024.

"I personally don’t think he makes it," Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity during the event in Davenport.

Hannity had mentioned prominent Democrats including Maureen Dowd, David Axelrod, and CNN's Van Jones as being critical of Biden's perceived physical and cognitive decline and popularity.

"I think he's in bad shape physically. Do you remember when he said, ‘I’d like to take him behind the barn’? If he took me behind the barn, and I went like this," Trump said, puckering to blow air from his mouth, "I believe he’d fall over. I believe he’d fall over, who knows!"

"I watched him at the beach. He wasn’t able to lift a beach chair which is meant for children to lift… and mentally I would say he’s possibly equally as bad and maybe worse," Trump also said.

Trump said Biden had ". . . evil people. Bad people. Smart people" surrounding him in the Oval Office. "Young, vicious, they are communists," he added.
