Former President Donald Trump reportedly lost it when he learned that President Joe Biden was beating him in polls leading up to the 2020 presidential election.
According to a new book from The Wall Street Journal’s Michael Bender, Trump interrupted an Oval Office policy meeting to complain about it, asking, “How am I losing in polls to a mental retard?”
Bender’s book, titled “‘Frankly, We Did Win This Election’: The Inside Story Of How Trump Lost,” is scheduled for release on August 10, but Vanity Fair shared a preview Monday that surmised how Trump’s responded to polling.
According to Bender, Trump worried as Biden pulled ahead that he had attacked Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren too early.
