President Joe Biden remains healthy and fit to successfully execute his duties, according to the doctors who gave the 80-year-old a three-hour physical examination on Thursday at a hospital in the Washington area. It marked
Mr Biden’s second extensive physical exam since he took office in January 2021. America’s oldest-ever president, he is widely expected soon to announce he will seek a second term in office. Thursday’s physical provides a detailed insight into Mr Biden’s medical history and his current health and fitness. It did not include a cognitive test.
“The President remains fit for duty, and fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations,”
Dr Kevin O’Connor wrote on Thursday in a memo.
As President Biden gears up for a potential re-election campaign, opinion polls have shown a majority of Democrats do not support him going for four more years in the White House. Many survey respondents cite Mr Biden’s advanced age as a primary concern. He would be 86 years old when he left office if he served a full second term.
