(FeaturedNews.com) – Former President Donald Trump responded vigorously on Sunday evening to claims by President Joe Biden’s campaign that he had hesitated during his speech at the National Rifle Association (NRA) event in Dallas. Trump refuted these claims on Truth Social, noting the presence of a “Record Crowd of very enthusiastic Patriots” at his speech, which was part of the NRA’s endorsement event for him.

Trump disputed the Biden campaign’s narrative that he had “froze” for 30 seconds during a musical interlude in his speech, clarifying that a brief period of silence is typical in his presentations when music is played. He also shared a video clip from the speech to support his statement.

The controversy began when the Biden campaign circulated a video showing Trump pausing during his speech, characterizing it as Trump playing “QAnon music” during a “bizarre slur-filled” event. Trump countered by saying that the music was a standard element of his campaign speeches, marking the conclusion of his remarks.

Trump suggested that the Biden campaign was using the incident to distract from Biden’s own public speaking issues, accusing his opponent of frequently being unable to articulate clearly or navigate stages without assistance.

In a further post, Trump addressed another moment from his speech when he appeared to nearly topple a podium he was leaning on. The Biden campaign had commented on this incident as well, portraying Trump as unstable. However, Trump claimed he had prevented the podium from falling with his “good reflexes and strength,” attributes he implied Biden lacks.

Trump’s posts were not just defensive reactions to the Biden campaign’s accusations but also included broad criticisms of Biden’s competence and integrity.

Biden’s campaign responded on Monday to Trump’s series of posts, maintaining that Trump did indeed hesitate during his speech and dismissing his explanations as a meltdown over a “Fake Story.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Biden campaign, James Singer, emphasized that the focus should not be on these exchanges but rather on Trump’s stated policies and actions, suggesting that these controversies were distractions from more significant issues like gun safety laws and governance. Singer’s statement implied that the voters were more concerned with Trump’s policy intentions and governance style than with the campaign squabbles highlighted over the weekend.
