Fox News' Chris Wallace mocks Trump by producing cognitive test he claimed to 'ace' and reveals questions the President said were 'very hard' included 'identifying an elephant' - as POTUS says 'incompetent' Biden would find it tough

Donald Trump went on the attack against Joe Biden during an hour-long interview with Fox News Sunday, calling into question the presumed Democratic nominee's mental state and bragging about the results of his own cognitive test.
'Biden can't put two sentences together,' Trump asserted when he was told about a new Fox News poll showing the former vice president beating Trump in November.
'They wheel him out,' the president continued, suggesting he staged interviews. 'He goes up – he repeats – they ask him questions. He reads a teleprompter and then he goes back into his basement.'
'You tell me the American people want to have that in an age where we're in trouble with other nations that are looking to do numbers on us,' Trump said, adding that the poll numbers showing Biden winning are 'fake.'
When Trump assured that Biden would be less mentally fit to serve in the White House, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace brought up the cognitive test the president boasted he 'aced.'
Trump insisted that Biden would not do as well.
'Well, I'll tell you what, let's take a test,' Trump posed a challenge to Biden. '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.'
'Incidentally, I took the test too when I heard that you passed it,' Wallace revealed to Trump on-camera during in the interview.
'Yeah, how did you do?'
'It's not – well it's not that hardest test,' Wallace said.
'They have a picture and it says 'what's that' and it's an elephant,' he continue, in an apparent mocking of the president.

Trump shot back: 'Yes, the first few questions are easy, but I'll bet you couldn't even answer the last five questions. I'll bet you couldn't, they get very hard, the last five questions'

'No no no. You see, that's all misrepresentation,' the president said of the version of the test that's available online.
'Yes, the first few questions are easy, but I'll bet you couldn't even answer the last five questions. I'll bet you couldn't, they get very hard, the last five questions,' Trump said of the test.
'Well, one of them was count back from 100 by seven,' Wallace continued, adding the first answer: 'Ninety-three.'
'You couldn't answer many of the questions,' Trump said of the Fox News host.
'Ok, what's the question?' he challenged.
'I'll get you the test, I'd like to give it,' the president continued. 'I'll guarantee you that Joe Biden could not answer those questions.'
'OK,' Wallace let up.
'I answered all 35 questions correctly,' the president touted again.
Trump also claimed that Biden would not be able to sit down in a lengthy one-on-one in-person interview the same way he did with Wallace.
'Let Biden sit through an interview like this, he'll be on the ground crying for mommy,' Trump said. 'He'll say, 'Mommy, mommy, please take me home.''

'Well we've asked him for an interview, sir,' Wallace revealed.
'He can't do an interview. He's incompetent' the president clapped back.
'I'm going to ask you a direct question about Joe Biden. Is Joe Biden senile?' Wallace, a Democrat, asked of the president.
'I don't want to say that,' Trump conceded. 'I'd say he's not competent to be president.'
'To be president, you have to be sharp and tough and so many other things. He doesn't even come out of his basement,' he said of the man he calls 'Sleepy Joe.'
Trump is referencing Biden's basement in Delaware, which he turned into a makeshift studio to show up for remote interviews and other virtual events as the coronavirus pandemic has sidelined the candidates to virtual campaigning.
The president finally held his first tele-rally on Friday after attempting to hold two in-person rallies in the post-coronavirus era – the first in Tulsa, Oklahoma yielding a dismal crowd of around 6,200 of the more than 19,000 stadium seats.
The other was an outdoor rally scheduled for earlier this month in New Hampshire, but it was postponed.
'I called Michigan, I want to have a big rally in Michigan. Do you know we're not allowed to have a rally in Michigan?' Trump scoffed. 'Do you know we're not allowed to have a rally in Minnesota? Do you know we're not allowed to have a rally in Nevada? We're not allowed to have rallies.'
Rallies have come to a stop as states are experiencing a surge in the amount of coronavirus infections as massive nationwide Black Lives Matter protests ensued and lockdown orders began to loosen.
There are more than 3.7 million confirmed cases in the U.S., far more than any other country has reported, and the death toll has surpassed 140,000.
The death toll is only higher than other countries, Trump claims, because of the amount of testing available in the U.S.
A new Fox News poll released Sunday morning shows that 47 per cent of registered voters feel that Biden is mentally sound enough to serve as president.
On the other hand, only 43 per cent of the 1,104 respondents say Trump has the mental soundness to serve effectively in the White House. 
Trump made a surprise visit to Walter Reed Medical Center in November, sparking speculation over if he was experiencing medical issues.
Earlier this month, the president bragged to Fox News host Sean Hannity that he 'aced' a 'cognitive test' that was administered 'very recently' and insisted that doctors at Walter Reed were 'very surprised' that he passed.
During that interview with Hannity, the president said that Biden 'didn't take a cognitive test because he couldn't pass one.'
He added: 'I actually took one very recently when I was - when the radical left was saying, is he all there, is he all there?'

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment is a 10-minute test, which was created in 1996 so medical professionals could more easily identify mild cognitive dysfunction related to concentration, attention, memory, language, calculations, orientation, executive functions and visual skills.
The poll also shows Trump behind Biden by 8 percentage points.
'I'm not losing, because those are fake polls,' the president insisted. 'They were fake in 2016 and now they're even more fake.'
Trump acknowledged to Wallace that he is a sore loser.
'And you know why I won't lose, because the country in the end, they're not going to have a man who's shot,' he said of Biden.
'He's shot, he's mentally shot,' Trump continued. 'Let him come out of his basement, go around, I'll make four or five speeches a day, I'll be interviewed by you, I'll be interviewed by the worst killers that hate my guts. They hate my guts. There's nothing they can ask me that I won't give them a proper answer to. Some people will like it, some people won't like it.'
Trump also lamented that outlets are not touting the amount of 'enthusiasm' his supporters have for his reelection.
'There's a number you don't mention. It's called the enthusiasm number,' Trump said. 'The enthusiasm for Trump is through the roof even higher than last time.'
'The enthusiasm for Biden is nonexistent. Everyone knows he's shot.'
'Those people know I'm doing a good job, but there's something in my personality that they don't like because look, nobody's done what I've done,' he said before launching into a list of his presidential accomplishments.
