U.S. President Joe Biden intends to run for re-election in 2024, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Monday. Biden has recently undergone comprehensive checkups – many accused him of being unable to perform his duties.
“Yes. That’s his intention,” said Psaki aboard Air Force One during Biden’s trip to the Thanksgiving celebration with US troops at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The spokesman was asked if President Biden intended to run for re-election.
On Friday, 79-year-old Biden crossed over for the first time since taking up his position comprehensive research. The health of the US president has been the subject of discussions and attacks by Republicans and former President Donald Trump from the beginning of his term of office. Republican congressmen, including former White House chief physician Ronny Jackson, have repeatedly called on Biden to undergo cognitive function tests, suggesting he has dementia.
US President Joe Biden remains healthy and fit to continue his function, the president’s doctor said on Friday in a letter published by the White House. The doctor admitted that the president still suffered from previously diagnosed cardiac arrhythmias and difficulties in walking.
O’Connor stressed that a detailed neurological examination did not reveal the president no disturbances of the central nervous system such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke. Routine colonoscopy – which was the reason handing over for 85 minutes of power to Vice President Kamala Harris – showed no disturbing changes.
The doctor revealed that Biden is taking medication anticoagulants (apixaban), statins (a cholesterol-lowering drug), as well as antiallergics and a medicine to relieve acid reflux.
According to a poll published last week for the Politico portal, 48 percent. Americans believe that the president is not mentally fit enoughto perform their function, and only 40 percent. believes that she is in good health.
