suddenly stopped talking for more than 30 seconds during a speech at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Dallas, Texas over the weekend, leading the Biden campaign to capitalize on the speculation about whether his *********** opponent is fit for office.

The presumptive *********** presidential nominee addressed **** owners after receiving the association’s endorsement, stoking fears of the Biden administration “coming for your guns.” Trump’s critics were quick to ******* him, saying he froze during his speech and is unfit for office. His supporters said he paused for dramatic effect.

The campaigns’ sparring was the latest in a back-and-forth about both candidates’ ages and mental competency. Biden is 81 and Trump is 77.

Trump says glitch story is “made up”

Social media users speculated Trump’s pause was due to a problem with his teleprompter, but Trump said that was not the case.

Trump said that the 30-second “******* of silence” is a standard part of his speeches and that the Biden-Harris campaign was to blame for the “fake story” that he froze in a

“The reason they came up with this Disinformation is that Biden freezes all the time, can’t put two sentences together, and can rarely find his way off the stage without help,” Trump wrote. “Donald Trump doesn’t freeze!”

During his address Saturday, Trump promised to undo **** regulations passed during the Biden administration.

“In my second term, we will roll back every Biden ******* on the Second Amendment,” Trump said. “Starting the minute that crooked Joe shuffles his way out of the White House.”
