“National security issue”: Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson warns the president is unfit to govern and to be commander-in-chief

Date:

With less than five months to the November general election, the frequency of attacks on the potential presidential candidates has become an everyday occurrence from their opponents. The political climate has intensified, especially after last week’s verdict in New York where the former president was convicted on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in a trial related to hush money. Following this, he resumed his campaign efforts with a fundraising tour in California.

As the presidential race likely narrows down to Trump and Biden, many voters are expressing dissatisfaction with these options. Biden’s major concerns include his age, capacity to govern for another term, and the economy. Widespread financial difficulties due to soaring inflation could jeopardize his chances, with key battleground states showing a trend of voters leaning toward Trump, hoping for economic recovery under his leadership. Biden’s support is waning among critical voter segments like Black Americans, Hispanics, and the youth.

Despite the conviction potentially harming his campaign, Trump’s team remains optimistic. They believe he might reclaim some swing states lost in 2020 and secure a victory. A significant boost could come from Nikki Haley, a prominent primary challenger, if she endorses him. Should Haley decide to support Trump and possibly join him as a running mate. One should not be surprised if Trump decides to choose Haley as a running mate too.

President’s mental fitness raises concerns

Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal published an article that sparked considerable debate and prompted a reaction from the White House. The piece, entitled “Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping,” alleges that President Biden has exhibited noticeable signs of decline in recent private meetings. Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy commented on the change, noting a difference from Biden’s tenure as Vice President. “He’s not the same person,” McCarthy stated during an interview.

Texas Representative Ronny Jackson slams President Joe Biden

Representative Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who previously served as a White House physician under Presidents Obama and Trump, commented on President Biden’s mental capabilities following the release of The Wall Street Journal’s article. Speaking to Fox News Digital, Jackson highlighted concerns about what he described as “significant issues” with Biden’s mental fitness. His remarks came in the wake of the article’s critical assessment of the president’s performance.

“The article’s just documenting what I’ve been saying all along: he’s not fit to be the commander in chief,” Jackson said. “He’s got significant issues, he shouldn’t have the job. You know, it’s a national security issue for us.”

White House and Biden allies fired back

White House officials and Biden’s allies have blasted the report, pointing out past comments from Republicans about Biden’s mental sharpness.

“It’s a little surprising that The Wall Street Journal thought it was breaking news when congressional Republicans told them the same false claims they’ve spouted on Fox News for years, but it’s also telling that the only individuals willing to smear the President in this story are political opponents afraid to use their names — plus one proven liar,” White House spokesperson Andrew Bates responded to the story.

“Surprise, surprise—everyone attacking @POTUS is a Republican with an agenda,” Senator Patty Murray posted on X, the social network previously known as Twitter. “I made clear to the @WSJ regarding the January meeting on Ukraine that the President was absolutely engaged & ran that meeting in a way that brought everyone together. I’m not quoted—I wonder why.,” she added.

The controversial article

The Wall Street Journal recently featured a detailed 3,000-word article entitled “Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping.” This report describes observations from meetings with congressional leaders, noting that President Biden “appears slower” and has “both good moments and bad ones.” Frequent GOP criticisms focus on questions about Biden’s age and mental sharpness. Numerous polls show that Biden’s age, 81, is a major concern for voters. On the other hand, Donald Trump, approaching 78, has also had his share of public gaffes. However, these polls indicate that concerns about Trump’s mental fitness are significantly less prevalent among voters.
