Biden not being treated for Parkinson’s: White House

Following allegations that a Parkinson’s disease expert had visited the White House eight times, US President Joe Biden’s spokesman stated on Monday that the president is not receiving treatment for the illness.

“Has the President been treated for Parkinson’s? No. Is he being treated for Parkinson’s? No, he’s not. Is he taking medication for Parkinson’s? No,” Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told a briefing.

The White House announced on Monday that US President Joe Biden is not receiving treatment for Parkinson’s disease. This came after the New York Times revealed that visitor logs from August through March revealed at least eight visits from a physician who specializes in the illness to the White House.

Since Joe Biden stammered during his June 27 debate against Republican Donald Trump, seeming weak and occasionally losing his line of thought, worries about the president’s potential undiagnosed sickness have grown.

Biden is battling criticism from some Democrats that he lacks the mental acuity to stand as their nominee against Trump in the Nov. 5 presidential election.
