The White House indicated on Monday that President Joe Biden is not expected to undergo a cognitive assessment during his annual physical examination, amid widespread public doubt regarding his mental capability to pursue a second term in office.

This announcement follows the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Hur's criminal investigation into Biden's mishandling of classified documents. Hur's report, released last week, found that Biden had "willfully retained and disclosed classified materials" but deemed that criminal charges were not necessary.

The report suggested that in a potential trial, Biden might portray himself as "a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory."

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, when queried about Biden's annual physical and the possibility of a cognitive test, conveyed that Dr. Kevin O'Connor, the President's physician, assesses Biden's mental acuity based on his daily performance.

Jean-Pierre highlighted Biden's interactions with world leaders and his decision-making on critical issues as evidence of his mental sharpness, stating, "And so, he shows it every day on how he thinks, how he operates. And that is how Dr. O'Connor sees it. And that's how I'm going to leave it," the Daily Wire reported.

Recent polls reveal that 86% of Americans question Biden's suitability for the presidency due to his age, and 76% express concerns over his mental fitness. Biden has not undergone a cognitive test during his tenure as President, per ABC News.
