Biden has steadfastly refused to step aside, saying he is the most qualified candidate to beat Republican nominee Donald Trump despite his dismal performance in last month's presidential debate. But in an interview with BET conducted Tuesday, Biden said that he might reconsider his decision if a "medical condition" emerged.

Read previewJoe Biden is facing mounting pressure to prove he's medically fit to run for a second term, but experts say a cognitive test could set a dangerous precedent. Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," Sen. Lindsey Graham said all presidential nominees, including Biden and Trump, should take a cognitive test. Cognitive tests are usually quick and simple and can check for functions such as concentration, abstract thinking, language, and memory. He told ABC's Stephanopoulos on Friday: "I have a cognitive test every single day." According to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, after Biden's physical in February, his doctors decided he didn't need a cognitive test.

"Look, I have a cognitive test every day," he said in an interview on Friday with ABC News. Samuel Corum/Getty ImagesCompared to Trump, Biden has released far more comprehensive medical information, with the most recent update coming in February of 2024. One cognitive test is not sufficient to detect issues, doctors told the Wall Street Journal. In it, Dr. Bruce Aronwald said that he has conducted "several comprehensive examinations" and called Trump's cognitive exams "exceptional." Like Biden, though, Trump has made significant public gaffes, such as when he called the president of Egypt the "president of Mexico."

U.S. President Joe Biden departs the White House in Washington, D.C., for the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his routine annual physical on Feb. 28, 2024. President Joe Biden arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Wednesday morning for his annual physical, with a formal summary of his results expected later in the afternoon. After last year's physical, White House physician Dr. Kevin O'Connor said that Biden "remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency." Despite their closeness in age, polls show voters are less concerned about Trump's fitness than Biden's. Biden angrily pushed back on that report, acknowledging his age but declaring, "I know what the hell I'm doing."

"He continues to be fit for duty and fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations," Kevin O'Connor, the president's physician, wrote in a summary released by the White House. Biden spent most of the afternoon at Walter Reed Medical Center completing his third annual physical since his election. The White House and Biden's lawyers have vigorously disputed Hur's conclusion about the president's memory, arguing that the special counsel crossed the line in putting such conjecture into his lengthy report. While some tried to argue that Trump forgot the name of former first lady Melania Trump, the context suggests he was instead shouting out a former Trump White House official.

"As expected, the biopsy confirmed that the small lesion was basal cell carcinoma. All cancerous tissue was successfully removed," O'Connor wrote.

WASHINGTON, March 3 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden's February biopsy confirmed a skin lesion removed from his chest was a basal cell carcinoma - a common form of skin cancer - and all cancerous tissue was successfully removed, White House physician Kevin O'Connor said on Friday. Biden will continue dermatologic surveillance as part of his ongoing healthcare but the site of the biopsy has healed and no further treatment is needed, the White House physician added. O'Connor said in a letter released by the White House that basal cell carcinoma lesions do not tend to spread or metastasize. The site of the biopsy has healed well, he said.

President Joe Biden jogs across the South Lawn of the White House to speak with visitors before boarding Marine One, Friday, March 18, 2022, in Washington. President Joe Biden remains "fit" to conduct his duties as president, according to a medical memo released by the White House following a routine physical exam on Thursday. "President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency," White House physician Kevin O'Connor said in a five-page memo. Biden was expected to have his exam in January, but it was postponed due to schedule conflicts, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said earlier this month. In 2021, Biden's exam included a colonoscopy, which required sedation.

"President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency..." O'Connor wrote. Biden's medical report comes a day after Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley called for "mandatory mental competency tests" for politicians older than 75, a dig at both Biden and former President Donald Trump. Biden's last medical report in November 2021 also described him as "healthy" and "vigorous" and said he was "fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency."
