President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, has temporarily delegated power to Vice President of the United States of America, Kamala Haris, while he undergoes a colonoscopy.
He transferred his power to her yesterday, on the 20th of November, 2021.
The short-period transfer made the Bice President the first woman to hold presidential control in the United States of America’s history.
At 4 pm (GMT), Joe Biden, who is a Democrat, alerted leaders and officials of the United States in Congress of the power transfer and took back control at 5 pm (GMT). This was revealed by media reports from Reuters, who said these facts were revealed by the United States White House.
The United States president underwent a normal physical examination at Walter Reed military hospital outside Washington.
The spokesperson of the United States White House, Jen Psaki, said Joe Biden spoke to Kamala Haris and the White House’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, after the procedure and they were in good spirits.
The president’s power transfer occurred while he was under anesthesia for the colonoscopy. Kamala Haris worked from her office in the West Wing of the White House at that time.
Kamala Haris was the first woman to serve as vice president of the United States, and now she has become the first woman to ever be President of the United States of America in its nearly 250-year history.
Kamala Harris, the Vice President of the United States of America, addressed Congress while US President Joe Biden stood behind her.
The U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment sets out a process for Joe Biden to transfer power when he is unable to discharge his duties.
Presidential power has been transferred to a United States of America vice president before when former US President George W. Bush had colonoscopies in the years 2002 and 2007.
Joe Biden, who turned 79 today, on November 20th, 2021, is the oldest person to take office as a United States of America president, leading to a high interest in his health and well-being.
But Joe Biden had promised to be more transparent about his health than the former president of the United States of America, Donald Trump.
