    A new book is claiming that Donald Trump saw Joe Biden as a "mental retard" during the 2020 presidential election, but was reluctant to attack him to harshly because he was worried Democrats would replace him with Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton.

    This claim was made by Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender in his new book "Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost," which is due to come out in August. Excerpts obtained by Vanity Fair claim that Trump once interrupted a White House meeting to ask, "How am I losing in the polls to a mental retard?"

    Dick Morris, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, who has moved further right and informally acted as an advisor to Trump, told the former president that Democrats may decide to replace Biden on the ticket.

    "Dick Morris told Trump that Biden was too old and too prone to gaffes to be the nominee," Bender wrote.

    At 78 years of age, Biden was the oldest president to ever be sworn in back in January. Trump is turning 75 later this week.

    Trump reportedly told his aides that Democrats would "realize [Biden is] old, and they're going to give it to somebody else. They're going to give it to Hillary, or they're going to give it to Michelle Obama."

    Clinton reportedly did consider jumping into the race despite the fact that she had failed miserably in her previous two attempts at running for president. She unsuccessfully battled Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination back in 2008, and she then lost to Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

    Meanwhile, Michelle has always claimed that she has no interest in running for office despite the fact that the former First Lady is incredibly popular with the Democratic base.

    "The reason why I don't want to run for president — and I can't speak for Oprah — but my sense is that, first of all, you have to want the job," Michelle said in 2018, according to Today. "And you just can't say, 'Well you're a woman, run.' We just can't find the women we like and ask them to do it, because there are millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics."
