President Donald Trump snapped back at one of President Joe Biden’s recent gaffes, questioning the reaction he would get if he made the same slip-up.

Trump took to Truth Social on Monday to post a response video to Biden reading out the word “pause” from the teleprompter during a trade union conference in April. During the conference held in Washington D.C., Biden had been reading off a teleprompter for his speech, however, he appeared to include script instructions as well, according to Fox News.

“Imagine what we could do next. Four more years, pause,” Biden stated before the crowd started to chant “four more years.”

Trump’s response to the video was clipped from a Wisconsin rally, where he questioned the mistake as the crowd laughed at his impression of Biden.

“Now, think if I read my teleprompter and I’m going, ‘Well let’s see now because of the weakness in the economy I’d like to apologize, pause,'” Trump stated as the crowd erupted with laughter.

“‘Pause! What was that? That’s unbelievable — ‘pause.’ You know I was watching it and I said, ‘That was weird,'” Trump continued.

Biden has continually made various gaffes and verbal mistakes while on stage, with his most recent one occurring over the weekend as he delivered the commencement speech to Morehouse College graduates, according to the New York Post.

During the speech to the HBCU graduating class Sunday, Biden began to reflect on the COVID-19 pandemic, as many of the students were unable to have high school graduations.

However, as Biden was reflecting he stated that things got “kind of bad” while he was vice president during the pandemic, leading many to call out how the pandemic was during the Trump administration.

“When I was vice president, things were kind of bad during the pandemic and what happened was, Barack said to me, ‘Go to Detroit! Help fix it,’” Biden stated.
