President Trump on Wednesday needled Joe Biden, his presumptive opponent in the 2020 presidential race, mocking the former vice president's recently famous habit of verbal gaffes.

"I don't know if Joe is going to limp across the line. I watch him speak, he can't put together a sentence," the president said during a CNBC interview with Joe Kernen.

Biden's propensity for verbal missteps has even been noted by liberal-leaning outlets such as The New York Times, which noted in October that Biden often "takes circuitous routes to the ends of sentences, if he finishes them at all."

Trump also criticized Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, whom the president derided as "Mini-Mike."

"[He's] spending a lot of money, he's got no chance," Trump said.
