President Trump has apparently christened a new nickname for his opponent, whom he previously referred to as "Sleepy Joe Biden." In a tweet Wednesday, Trump attacked the Democratic presidential nominee for another alleged gaffe, calling him "Joe Hiden" in the process.

The nickname is a jab at Biden's lack of public availability and refusal to take questions from the press during his infrequent appearances. The Trump campaign has alleged that this is part of an intentional strategy to shield Biden from any scrutiny of his mental capacity in the lead-up to the election.

Biden's opponents have mocked the former vice president of hiding in his Delaware basement while unidentified handlers make his decisions and run his campaign.

Meanwhile, Trump's tweet referenced Biden's recent verbal mistake where he seemed to accidentally read an instructional note from his teleprompter as he was answering questions from an interviewer.

While criticizing the president's policy in Venezuela, Biden appeared to read an instructional prompt, "topline message," aloud.

"I understand that Cuba along with Russia and China has contributed to the political impasse in Venezuela as well. What's the president doing? Look, Venezuela topline message is President Trump's policy is an abject failure."
