Trump Dismisses Stroke Claims as 'Fake News,' Points to Biden

President Donald Trump called claims that he had a series of mini-strokes “FAKE NEWS.”

Trump denied that a trip he made to Walter Reed Medical Center in November 2019 was because he suffered from a “series of mini-strokes.”

The theory that Trump may have had a medical incident is related to an unscheduled visit he made to Walter Reed last year.

According to a new book from New York Times correspondent Michael Schmidt, Schmidt mentions that Vice President Mike Pence was put on standby in case the president became incapacitated at any time during his visit to the hospital.

At the time, the White House said Trump was visiting Walter Reed to complete portions of his annual physical exam. 

The Hill reports that Schmidt never mentions Trump suffering from a series of small strokes in the book. 

“It never ends!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Now they are trying to say that your favorite President, me, went to Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a series of mini-strokes. Never happened to THIS candidate - FAKE NEWS. Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party!”

Trump suggested that perhaps it is his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, who suffered from a health issue in his tweet. 

CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart floated the stroke theory on Twitter on Monday. He suggested Trump secretly had a stroke that he hid from the American public.
