The former White House physician for Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump says that a new report this week about how President Joe Biden is struggling to function behind closed doors represents a serious threat to the U.S.

The remarks from Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) come after The Wall Street Journal reported that Biden has struggled so greatly at times that officials in private meetings with him have wondered if he is even awake.

The report said that Biden did not know details about his own policies or the fact that the policies had been implemented in addition to forgetting negotiations that had already been solidified and making bizarre remarks to lawmakers.

“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.”

The Journal spoke with nearly four dozen individuals for its report, including Democrats and Republicans, leading Jackson to believe that the Left might be laying the groundwork to try to get rid of Biden.

“I think that the fact that it came out like this, and is so well sourced, tells me that this might be the left’s first attempt to start laying the groundwork to get rid of him,” he said.


Jackson reported to the White House Medical Unit (WHMU) during the Bush era in 2006, but he did not start as physician to the president until July 2013, a position that he served in until March 28, 2018. Jackson served as WHMU director from March 2010 through December 2014. Jackson also served as the first chief medical advisor to the president from February 2019 until December 2019. Jackson now serves as the U.S. Representative for Texas’ 13th Congressional District.
