“I don’t think she could pass basic aptitude tests, personally,” Trump told Fox.
He added: "I really don’t. I don’t believe it."
The president's comments came after House Speaker Pelosi last week announced a committee that would allow the 25th Amendment to be invoked if a president were deemed mentally unfit for office.
Pelosi had previously questioned Trump's mental state, as she said of drugs the president was taking for coronavirus: "medical professionals say this could have an impact on judgment."
She told Bloomberg TV Trump "is, shall we say, in an altered state right now."
Speaking with Fox News on Sunday, however, Trump claimed Pelosi's move is so she could potentially oust Joe Biden if he were to win the 2020 presidential election.
Batrimono questioned Trump, telling him that "sources" told her Biden had two brain aneurysms – despite Biden undergoing surgery in 1988 to fix them and him speaking publicly about recovering.
Trump has previously made unbacked claims over Biden's mental fitness.
"I think she's talking about Joe Biden. Because to be honest, he's the one that's got the problem and obviously it's obvious to anyone that watches him speak," Trump told Fox of Pelosi's amendment move.
"He's the one that has the problem and they want to put a super radical left person in like Kamala who's further left than Bernie Sanders," Trump claimed.
He alleged Democrats would plan to use the Amendment to pull Biden out of power, and put his running mate Harris, in as acting president.
"A lot of people think she's talking about Joe Biden, getting him out. and frankly that's the way I view it," Trump claimed.
Also during his interview with Fox, Trump claimed he is now "immune to coronavirus."
He said it "looks like I'm immune for maybe a long time, maybe a short time, maybe a lifetime," after his doctor the night before released a statement saying he is no longer able to transmit the virus to others.
Doctors remain unsure exactly how long coronavirus antibodies would last, and the level of immunity they would provide.
