Former President Donald Trump issued the absolute perfect statement to take a dig at Joe Biden on Monday.
The statement began with the title, “ICYMI: Joe Biden Meets With Trump Supporters.”
“These kids tricked Biden just like the Taliban did!” Trump added, with the viral photo of a group of kids posing with Biden while decked out in MAGA gear.

The photo was taken at a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Saturday in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Biden claimed that he was not duped by the children into taking a photo with them, in a rambling rant to reporters at the event.
“I think the real issue for those kids that, just had a picture taken with, couple of them had Trump hats from last year, I think, for them, it’s going to be: Are we going to, in the next four, five, six, 10 years, demonstrate that democracies can work, or not?” Biden told reporters.
“There’s a lot of autocrats who truly believe that democracies can’t function in the 21st century. Not a joke,” the president added. “They think because the world is changing so rapidly and people are so divided, you can’t bring people together in a democracy to get a consensus, and the only ones that are going to be able to succeed are the autocrats.”
