Dr. Ronny Jackson says Biden must undergo cognitive test
Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson sent a letter Thursday requesting that President Biden undergo a cognitive test “so the American people know the full mental and intellectual health of their President.” Thirteen Republican congressional members signed onto the letter with Jackson, asking Biden to make the results available to the American people.
“The American people should have absolute confidence in their President,” Jackson’s letter reads. “They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties of Head of State and Commander in Chief. They deserve full transparency on the mental capabilities of their highest elected leader.”
On Thursday night Jackson told Fox News host Sean Hannity that “after this most recent embarrassing performance overseas, I thought it was time to come out (with the letter).”
“We can’t sit on this any longer,” Jackson told Hannity.
The letter was copied to chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and current White House Physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor.
Jackson said Biden’s “mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past eighteen months.”
