Elections in the USA – Biden passed a medical examination for fitness for duty – UNIAN


The president passed specialists in optometry, dentistry, orthopedics, physiotherapy, neurology, medical sleep, cardiology, radiology and dermatology.

US President Joe Biden passed the annual medical examination, which confirmed that he is able to perform his duties.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor stated in his report that the American leader has “no new problems” with health. As CNN clarifies, this report will be the last information on Biden’s health before the presidential election in November.

“The President is doing well and the current medical examination revealed no new problems. He continues to be able to perform his duties and is fully performing all of his duties without any exceptions or accommodations. President Biden is a healthy, active, robust 81-year-old man who remains capable of successfully carrying out the duties of the President, including the duties of Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander-in-Chief,” O’Connor wrote.

As you know, at 81, Biden is already the oldest of all American presidents. If he is re-elected, he will be 86 years old at the end of his second term. White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre announced at the daily briefing that, according to the president’s doctor, he “does not need a cognitive test.”

In his report, O’Connor describes in detail the specialties of the doctors involved in the medical examination: optometry, dentistry, orthopedics (foot and ankle joint), orthopedics (spine), physiotherapy, neurology, sleep medicine, cardiology, radiology and dermatology. The document was also reviewed by other doctors of the White House Medical Service.

“Each of these specialists independently reviewed the map, examined the president and agreed with my conclusions and recommendations,” O’Connor noted.

According to the examination, Biden weighs 80.7 kg and has a height of 182.8 cm, which corresponds to the height and weight recorded during his last physical examination in February 2023. The doctor claims that the politician “continues to train at least five days a week.”

In previous examinations, it was indicated that Biden had a stiff gait caused by “wear and tear” of the spine. However, according to the latest conclusions, “arthritic changes in Biden remain from moderate to severe, but still do not lead to compression of the nerve roots so significant as to require any special treatment.”

As the report says, the American leader recently complained of pain in his left thigh, “which, undoubtedly, also affects his stiff gait.” While Biden’s gait remains stiff, it hasn’t gotten any worse since last year.

Elections in the USA

As reported by UNIAN, the next presidential election will be held in the USA in November 2024. In front of them are the primaries – primaries, the winners of which will fight for the presidential seat.

The Toronto Star wrote that the current presidential election in the USA will be a “referendum on the future of Ukraine.” For the Republican Party under the leadership of Donald Trump, support for Ukraine “has become an unnecessary matter.” At the same time, without the support of the USA, Ukraine will lose the war against the Russian Federation.

At the same time, according to the WSJ, Americans do not want to see either Biden or Trump in the White House.

An Economist/YouGov poll on June 13 showed that only 33% of voters want Donald Trump to run, and 26% want Joe Biden to do it.
