On Saturday, Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who served as the White House physician under President Barack Obama, stated that he worries that Biden’s “cognitive decline” could lead to an all-out war with Russia and China.
“It’s TERRIFYING for our country that Biden is our commander-in-chief,” Jackson wrote. “He doesn’t know where he’s at half the time, and every day he brings us closer to an all-out war with Russia & China.”
“His cognitive decline is going to get people KILLED!!” the congressman added.
Under President Biden, the United States has seen rising tensions between both geopolitical adversaries as Russia invades Ukraine and China flies a spy balloon over the continental U.S.
Over the past year, President Biden has sent over $113 billion in aid to Ukraine, both military armaments and civilian assistance. The effort has been criticized by some Republican lawmakers as a blank check for the Zelensky-led government in Kyiv due to the money’s lack of oversight and rampant corruption in the country.
Additionally, the U.S. and its European allies have regularly increased the lethality of the arms sent to Ukraine the most recent of which being tanks with speculation that fighter jets are potential shipments in the future.
Meanwhile, the US recently announced an increase of troops in Taiwan as a potential invasion of the island nation could be in the coming years. All of this is while a Chinese spy balloon was allowed to enter U.S. airspace and stay there for over a week under President Biden’s watch before being shot down off the coast of South Carolina.
Biden has overseen some of the worst foreign policy catastrophes in modern American history, the withdrawal from Afghanistan being the most notable. The 80-year-old’s cognitive ability is certainly not helping his or America’s interests abroad. The fact that Biden is likely to run for a second term in 2024 when he would be 82, is frightening and one can only hope that he would not be elected to another four years in office. His cognitive ability would likely decline precipitously until he would potentially leave the presidency at the age of 86 in 2029.
