Trump and Obama's former doctor: Biden 'not fit mentally or physically to be ... trends now
Texas congressman Ronny Jackson has claimed he is 'not fit mentally or physically' to lead the country and 'it's a bad situation for us'.
The now-Republican politician slammed White House officials for allowing Biden, 80, to run for a second term and said those close to him like his wife Jill should be stopping him.
His comments come after Biden fell on stage during a graduation ceremony at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado on Thursday.
The recent stumble marks the fourth time he has fallen in public since taking office in January 2021.
Ronny Jackson, former White House doctor for presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, has raised concerns over Joe Biden's health and said it is 'malpractice' to allow him to seek re-election

Jackson insisted that Biden's health is becoming a national security issue and said something has to be done.
'This man's not fit mentally or physically to be our president, and it's a bad situation for us,' he told Fox News Channel's Hannity on Friday.
'Part of the job of the President of the United States is to inspire confidence and project power, and he's not doing that. He can't do that, he's too old to do that, and I think it's a shame.
'I think his lack of physical ability and his physical decline is now starting to highlight the cognitive decline that we've been watching for so long now.
'It's a package that just doesn't sell around the world, and it's becoming a national security issue for us. We have to do something about.'
Jackson added: 'To think that this man thinks he can be president at the age of 86 when he's 80 right now [and] could be in office for another six years is just malpractice on part of the White House in the West Wing to allow this to be happening, for him to even be talking about running for another term.
'Somebody needs to be held accountable. People like Jill Biden and people that surround him and are supposed to love him and care about him, they should be doing something about this, and they should be stopping this because it's a shame.'
He said it has reached a stage where 'our commander in chief needs a walker' during events.
'Could you imagine? It would be a better image than what we're seeing right now — seeing him creep around in a walker,' Jackson added.
'At least he wouldn't be falling flat on his face in front of the entire world.… It's embarrassing for him, and it's embarrassing for our country.'
