Presidential candidate’s health comes into question again
Presidential candidate Joe Biden admitted he would not seek a second term as president if his health declines while in office.
A voter asked Biden at a CNN town hall in Las Vegas, Nevada, if he would commit to serving only one term.
“No, I wouldn’t do that, but, I tell you what, you’re going to be able to make a judgment,” Biden said.
“And, by the way, the two youngest people on the stage now are me and Buttigieg,” he added.
But Biden admitted he would not seek a second term if his health deteriorated.
“I’m in pretty good health, but, look, I guarantee you this: If anything changed in my health, making it incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done, then I give you my word: I would not run again,” Biden said.
If Biden were elected, he would become the oldest president in history.
Biden argued that his reasoning for not committing to one term as it could make it more challenging to accomplish policy goals.
“Look, anybody who starts off saying, ‘I’m only going to serve one term,’ is already behind the eight ball because then you’re a one-term president, and no one worries about what the hell’s going to happen after that,” Biden said.
In December, Biden released his medical records, but details of his cognitive health were suspiciously absent.
The records made no mention of mental fitness, despite it being regularly called into question due to his numerous instances of public confusion.

Recently, the former vice president even admitted that he struggles to formulate words when he’s tired.
But Biden’s frequent blunders have not gone unnoticed.
The former Vice president’s doctor last year insisted he has not suffered brain damage and is in good health, despite mounting concerns about his mental condition.
President Donald Trump said publically stated Biden was not fit to be president last year.
“Joe Biden just said, ‘We believe in facts, not truth.’ Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president?”
“We are ‘playing’ in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!”
