Former White House doctor concerned about Biden's health: "This is going to get worse"

Ronny Jackson, who treated Bush, Obama and Trump, noted that "the decline is occurring rapidly."

Joe Biden's health promises to be one of the central issues of the 2024 presidential elections. In April, the current president announced his intentions to seek a second term, which, if achieved, would end at the age of 85. The issue was raised by Republicans and Democrats, but particularly by Congressman Dean Phillips, the president's challenger in the Democratic primaries. Ronny Jackson, former White House doctor, was added to the list of those concerned about the president's health.

Jackson joined the presidential medical team in 2000 and treated George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, the latter two as their lead physician. He left his position in 2019 when he decided to run successfully for the House of Representatives, where he arrived in 2020 after going through a difficult primary and then easily defeating his Democratic opponent.

"This man can't do the job"

The now Texas congressman appeared on "Sunday Morning Futures" to discuss his time as a doctor and analyze Biden's health, which has him worried ahead of the presidential elections.

"[The decline is] occurring rapidly. Like you said, I've taken care of three presidents… so I know firsthand what it takes to be the commander-in-chief and the head of state. It's a grueling job, both mentally and physically. This man can't do the job. He's proven to us every single day that he can't do the job, but this is going to get worse," he expressed when asked by Sean Duffy.

"It's just unbelievable how much he's degenerated just during his time in office. We cannot afford to have this man in office for the remainder of this term and then [for] another four years after that. He's already putting us at great risk right now," he added.

The congressman also took the opportunity to criticize the president for his management as head of the White House, mentioning the immigration crisis, the international conflicts that have broken out in recent years and the lack of leadership.

"It's because this man, even if he wanted to, he cannot provide that leadership. He is not physically and cognitively fit for office anymore, and somebody in his inner circle needs to step up to the plate and make him aware of this, and he needs to move on for the safety and security of this country," Jackson said.
