Donald Trump boasts about 'good reviews' for interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace who mocked his claim of 'acing' cognitive test and persistently fact-checked claims Joe Biden would defund police

President Trump boasted Tuesday morning about the praise he received about his interview with 'Fox News Sunday's' Chris Wallace, where he was fact-checked in real time by the host, who also mocked the president for acing a cognitive test.   
'Thank you for the good reviews and comments on my interview with Chris Wallace of @FoxNews,' the president tweeted. 'We may have set a record for doing such an interview in the heat. It was 100 degrees, making things very interesting!' 
The interview, conducted Friday and aired in-full Sunday, was hot, sweaty and heated at times, as Wallace pushed back on Trump's assertion that Democratic rival Joe Biden wanted to 'defund' or 'abolish' the police.

Trump had decided to host Wallace outside the White House, joking that he wanted to see him 'sweat' on a day where the high didn't get up to 100 degrees, but was in the mid-90s. 
On several occasions, Trump stopped the interview to shout to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to bring him visuals. 
During one such moment, Trump was trying to blame the current surge in shootings in major cities like New York and Chicago and the Democrats and then said Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, wanted to 'defund' the police. 
Last week Biden had rolled out a policy document worked on by supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, a top primary rival, too. 
The document doesn't explicitly call for defunding the police and actually puts more money toward certain services for law enforcement.  
'He signed a charter with Bernie Sanders,' Trump said. 
Wallace pointed out, 'It says nothing about defunding the police.' 
'Oh really? It says abolish, it says,' Trump said, raising his hands, slapping his knees and then turning to someone off-camera. 'Let's go! Get me the charter, please.' 
During a Friday preview of the interview, Wallace explained what happened next.  
'And he went through it and he found a lot of things that he objected to, that Biden had agreed to, but he couldn't find any indication, because there isn't any, that Joe Biden has sought to defund and abolish the police,' the 'Fox News Sunday' host said. 
Wallace also asked Trump why Biden, who the president has nicknamed 'sleepy Joe' and suggested isn't mentally fit, gets higher poll numbers when Americans were asked which candidate is more competent. 
'Biden beats you on that,' Wallace said. 
Trump then challenged the Democrat to taking a cognitive evaluation. 
'Well, I'll tell you what, let's take a test. Let's take a test right now. Let's go down, Joe and I will take a test. Let him take the same test that I took,' Trump said. 

Wallace said he, too, took the Montreal Cognitive Assessment when he heard Trump passed it. 
'Yeah, how did you do?' the president asked.    
Wallace answered, 'well, it's not the hardest test.' 
'They have a picture and it says "what's that?" and it's an elephant,' the host said. 
Trump claimed that was a 'misrepresentation.'  
'Well, that's what it was on the web,' Wallace said.  
Trump said while the first few questions are easy, 'I bet you couldn't even answer the last five questions. I bet you couldn't, they get very hard, the last five questions.' 
'Well, one of them was count back 100 by seven,' Wallace said.   
Trump continued to suggest that Wallace - nor Biden - could ace the test. 
'I'll get you the test, I'd like to give it. I'll guarantee you that Joe Biden could not answer those questions,' he said. 'And I answered all 35 questions correctly.'
