Donald Trump denies having multiple strokes despite no-one claiming he did

Donald Trump has furious denied he had a series of mini-strokes despite not being accused of suffering from the brain bleeds. The President of the United States tweeted Tuesday: ‘It never ends!

‘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’s tweet was in response to a New York Times review of a new book which referred to the president’s mystery visit to Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland last November. Michael Schimdt’s book Donald Trump v the United States says Mike Pence was put on standby to be sworn in as acting president.

Schmidt says Pence would have stepped up to the mantle had Trump been put under general anesthesia for an operation – although he did not make any allegations about why Trump had visited Walter Reed in the first place.

The president claimed at the time that he’d dropped in for a standard medical examination in anticipation of a ‘very busy’ 2020. He was not put to sleep for any procedure, and Pence did not take over from him.

Trump has faced repeated questions over his cognitive ability, after he was filmed struggling to raise a glass of water, and walking down a ramp at a military graduation ceremony in an unusual way.

The 74 year-old has batted off dementia rumors, and insists he is as fit as ever. He has also sought to fling mud at Democratic challenger Joe Biden, 77.

Trump has highlighted Biden’s own gaffes while claiming the former vice president should be made to undergo medical tests to establish whether he is fit to be president.
