US House of representatives member Ronny Jackson tweeted on Tuesday that, “something is seriously wrong with Biden, and it’s only going to get worse”. The Republican congressman from Texas added in another tweet that, “it’s past the point of embarrassment. He’s lost, he can barely put a coherent sentence together.
“He must have a cognitive exam and release the results!”
Mr Jackson then appeared on Fox News to claim that Mr Biden and lost his footing on the stairwell of Air Force One.
He now maintains that because of the president’s “difficulty speaking coherently”, he will have to be either forced from office with the invocation of 25th Amendment or he will resign.
The former physician to Donald Trump then said: “If members of Biden’s cabinet aren’t looking into invoking the 25th Amendment, then this is a national security issue at this point it really is.”

Mr Jackson then appeared on The Sean Hannity Fox News programme on Thursday, and repeated his concerns that with regards to Mr Biden’s cognition, “something’s going on here”.
He added: “And I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what?
“We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now.
“And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?
“Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test, where are these people?
“There’s something serious going on with this man right now.
“And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now.
“There’s some serious stuff going on right now.”
Mr Jackson was subject to an Inspector General’s report in March of this year that found he engaged in “inappropriate conduct” involving alcohol.
It was also found that he “disparaged” and “belittled” his subordinates.
