Former White House physician Ronny Jackson alleges the current government is withholding information concerning President Biden’s mental health.
Biden was recently deemed fit for duty after his annual physical check, which Jackson says did not address his “deteriorating mental state”.
“Yesterday’s written physical exam report published by Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, further indicates that this administration is still intent about concealing the truth,” Mr. Jackson said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
Jackson claims that he has written three letters to the White House requesting that Biden take a cognitive test and that the findings be made public, but that they have all been ignored.
“There was no mention of Biden’s deteriorating mental state in the report,” Mr. Jackson said. “This is frightening, because I have previously filed three letters to the White House demanding that Biden receive a cognitive test and that the results be made public, all of which have been disregarded. Everyone can tell that something is amiss, and the cover-up must end.”

The White House did not reply quickly to a request for comment.
Mr. Biden, 80, finished a three-hour session with his doctors on Thursday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
