US President Joe Biden celebrated his 79th birthday this Saturday (20th), the day after he was declared “healthy” and “fit” to fulfill his presidential duties after an extensive but routine medical check-up.

The head of state, who spent the day in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, had no public events scheduled.

This has not stopped a number of Democratic leaders from sending their congratulations.

Vice President Kamala Harris wished him “a happy and joyful day” on Twitter.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also wrote on Twitter that “the United States is grateful for your heart, your decency, your love for the country, your love for the people, and your principled leadership and vision to #RebuildBetter ”.

Biden received an early birthday present this week when House Democrats managed to pass his giant welfare bill, known as ‘Build Back Better’, which will now be considered by the Senate.

Former President Barack Obama, to whom Biden was vice-president, said: “Happy birthday to my friend and brother…Thank you for giving us all the gift of a better infrastructure.”

After Biden’s checkup, White House doctor Kevin O’Connor said the president is a “healthy and vigorous man” who is “apt to successfully carry out his duties in the presidency, which include those of boss. of the Executive, Head of State and Commander-in-Chief”.

Biden is the oldest president in US history.
