(ConservativeSense.com) – A letter compiled by Republican lawmakers is calling for President Joe Biden to be cognitively tested in order to continue running for re-election in 2024.
The letter, which was spearheaded by Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, was signed by 61 Republicans. It states concerns with the “current cognitive state” of Biden and doubts about his “ability to serve another term.”
The standards being called for in the letter do not just apply to Biden, but to all presidents, who the signers believe should “document and demonstrate sound mental abilities” in order to hold office. The letter acknowledges that although Biden already underwent two exams, these were physical examinations and not cognitive assessments.
Jackson and his GOP colleagues noted past letters raising these concerns, and stating that American citizens should have “absolute confidence” in the Commander in Chief’s ability to perform their duties in office.
The letter addressing Biden said that when he first announced his bid for the White House in 2020, “questions and concerns were raised” about his mental aptitude, and that such concerns “have only increased” since Biden was elected. They noted the various “Biden gaffes” throughout the president’s first term, all of which can be found by a simple Google search.
These criticisms of Biden were also made by Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, former governor of South Carolina and former UN Ambassador under Trump. Haley took some jabs at the age of both Biden and her former boss, and she’s also called for cognitive assessments of candidates as something that should be mandatory. In 2020, Trump also suggested Biden, his opponent at the time, should take a cognitive ability test.
Biden recently announced his re-election campaign for 2024 and many have doubts about whether or not he will be able to handle another election cycle let alone another term in office.
