“I think it is legitimate to ask whether this is a simple episode or a lasting state,” said the former speaker of the House of Representatives, who is still very influential within her party.

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi assured Tuesday that it was “legitimate” to question the state of health of President Joe Biden, who has been under scrutiny since his catastrophic performance during a debate Thursday against Donald Trump. “I think it is legitimate to ask whether this is just an episode or a state.” sustainable, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is still very influential within her party, said on MSNBC. The California representative, herself 84, praised the «vision» of the democratic leader for the country.

“I’m not a doctor. I can’t say what’s going to happen in three or four years, but I think from my experience, and this is what you asked me, I think he’s going to continue to be a great president of the United States.”she said. Calls from Democratic elected officials urging the president and his entourage to be transparent about the 81-year-old leader’s form have been increasing in recent hours. Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse said Monday that Americans wanted to be “safe” that Joe Biden was “honest about his condition”in an interview broadcast Monday by a local television channel.

Physical and verbal ease has declined

For months, the White House has been brushing aside, sometimes with a certain irritation, any questions about the physical and mental faculties of the American president, whose physical and verbal ease has declined. While until now the party’s heavyweights have publicly affirmed their support for him, since last Thursday’s debate nervousness has been growing among supporters and donors, some of whom accuse the president’s inner circle of a lack of transparency about his faculties.

Others are calling on Biden to respond concretely to concerns, with more press conferences or open exchanges with journalists or supporters. On Monday, a journalist asked the president out of the blue whether he would withdraw from the race, at the end of a short speech he had just given at the White House about a Supreme Court decision. Biden turned on his heel and left the room without answering.
