President Trump slammed Joe Biden during a rally in Arizona, accusing Biden of “going lid,” according to the Western Journal.

“Can you believe it? He’s going lid,” Trump began.

“You know what lid means?”

“Lid means a politician goes into, I guess, a garbage can or something. The lid. They put the lid on it. Right? I guess, I don’t know, maybe it’s something else,” the president added.

“That means he’s going to stay in the basement all day.”

“We’re in second place in Arizona?” Trump asked.

“No, we’re in first place in Arizona.”

“Same thing happened last time, only worse. It was crazy. And last time, I never did it before. So, I believed them. Then what happened is we had the day and I was down in nine states that I had to win. Right? I was down in all nine on Election Day and we won all nine, right?” Trump continued.

“They said, ‘This will be a very poor day for Donald Trump. This is going to be a rough day for Donald Trump, down in nine states … Oh, my God! He just won Wisconsin. He just won Michigan. He just won Arizona. He just won Pennsylvania. What’s going on?’

“They were not having a good day,” the president added.

From The Western Journal:

With little more than two weeks remaining until Election Day, Biden on Monday morning called a lid scheduled to last until Thursday, when he will face off with Trump in the second and final presidential debate.

It was not the first time the former vice president has officially put on hold all travel and event operations this cycle, with the Biden campaign reportedly calling at least nine such stoppages last month, according to The Federalist.

Polling aggregates from RealClearPolitics indicate the frequent lids have done little to move the dial against Biden, however, as Trump trails by roughly 9 percentage points nationally.

Biden also leads the most recent polling in each of the must-win battleground states — but the president has gained no shortage of ground in recent weeks, with margins under 4 percent in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

Trump was quick to dismiss such polling Monday, reminding the Northern Arizona crowd he had similarly trailed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, by every metric, throughout the course of the 2016 presidential election.
