Donald Trump's controversial statement supporting an attack on NATO allies inadvertently helps President Biden by shifting focus from questions about Biden's age to Trump's recklessness.

In an unexpected move, Donald Trump issued a controversial statement encouraging Russia to attack "delinquent" NATO allies, diverting attention from President Biden's age-related concerns. This provided Biden's campaign with a contrast, emphasizing Trump's recklessness over Biden's age issues. Trump's pattern of making ill-timed comments that backfire may play a crucial role in this year's presidential campaign, offering Biden an unusual form of assistance against the backdrop of age and leadership debates.
