Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is the Democratic presidential nominee, said in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which was broadcast on Sunday, that people should compare his “physical and mental acuity” to those of President Donald Trump.

He made the remark after host Norah O’Donnell noted that “Donald Trump says you have dementia and it's getting worse.”

“Hey, the same guy who thought that the 9/11 attack was a 7-Eleven attack,” said Biden. “He's talking about dementia?

“All I can say to the American people is watch me, is see what I've done, is see what I'm gonna do,” said Biden. “Look at me. Compare our physical and mental acuity. I'm happy to have that comparison.”

Here is a transcript of the part of Joe Biden’s interview on “60 Minutes” where he tells people to compare his “physical and mental acuity” to President Trump’s: 

Norah O'Donnell: “If elected, you would be the oldest president in American history.”

Joe Biden: “I'm in good shape."

O'Donnell: “78 years old. 82 after four years. Donald Trump says you have dementia and it's getting worse.”

Biden: “Hey, the same guy who thought that the 9/11 attack was a 7-Eleven attack. He's talking about dementia? All I can say to the American people is watch me, is see what I've done, is see what I'm gonna do. Look at me. Compare our physical and mental acuity. I'm happy to have that comparison."
