Donald Trump appeared to have endorsed ‘JD Mandel’ a candidate that does not exist in the Ohio GOP primary moments after bragging about acing a dementia test.
Trump made the comments on Sunday at a rally in Nebraska in support of Charles Herbster, a Republican candidate for governor who has been accused of sexually assaulting eight women.
“You know, in Texas, on endorsements, I was 33 and 0, and if I lost one race they’d say, ‘Trump was humiliated,'” Trump said. “That’s what they’re waiting for one race. You know we’ve endorsed Dr. Oz. We’ve endorsed JD Mandel and he’s doing great. They’re all doing good.”
It appears that Trump was confusing Ohio Republican primary candidates Josh Mandel and J.D. Vance. Trump endorsed Vance in the primary.
Moments before, Trump bragged about acing a cognitive test he took in office while questioning President Joe Biden’s mental fitness for office.
