Donald Trump has taken to his Truth Social account to launch a scathing retort t0 President Joe Biden, branding him "awkward" and "insane".

Trump's seething words come after a recent speech given by Biden at the Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where the POTUS mentioned Trump by name and accused him and his supporters of promoting extreme ideologies and "destroying American democracy," per the Daily Mail.

The eyebrow-raising comments were made in anticipation of the November mid-term elections.

"Too much of what's happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic," the President stated.

He zeroed in on "MAGA Republicans" - referencing Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan from 2016 - accusing them of thriving on chaos, not respecting the constitution, not being respectful of the law, and living "in the shadow of lies," the Guardian reports.

The 79-year-old added that "MAGA Republicans" seem to "promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence," - adding that Trump's supporters believe "there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win, or they were cheated," per NBC.

"But there’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country," Biden said.

Biden's 24-minute speech seems to have struck a nerve with Trump.

Taking to Truth Social, Trump's alternative social media platform, the 45th President of the US wrote: "If you look at the words and meaning of the awkward and angry Biden speech tonight, he threatened America, including with the possible use of military force."

He continued: "He must be insane or suffering from late stage dementia!"

Evidently, the New York native had more to say - even suggesting that Biden should not be in office - writing: "Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

"If he doesn't want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn't, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America," Trump added.

The businessman also shared an image that depicted Biden during his speech (with a red background behind him) next to an image of Trump kissing the American flag.

Protestors near the event shared their distaste for Biden's words - shouting: "F*** Joe Biden," and "Let's go, Brandon!" Addressing the hecklers, Biden said: "Notwithstanding the folks you hear on the other side - They're entitled to be outrageous. This is a democracy," the Daily Mail detailed.

Other politicians have spoken out ahead of Biden's speech, with Republican House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, stating: "Instead of trying to bring our country together to solve these challenges, President Biden has chosen to divide, demean and disparage his fellow Americans - simply because they disagree with his policies. That's not leadership."

"When the president speaks tonight at Independence Hall, the first lines out of his mouth should be to apologize for slandering tens of millions of Americans as 'fascists,'" he added.

Speaking to FOX News after the speech, McCarthy even accused Biden of not understanding the "soul of America."

Biden's speech certainly has viewers divided and - with Trump currently under investigation by the FBI for alleged mishandling of classified documents - it should make for an interesting mid-term election, especially as they can have a significant impact on the direction of America.
