Is He Fit To Carry Out The Duties of President?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing a new bill that would give Congress a role in determining whether the US President must be forced out of office if he or she is incapable of doing the job. The measure stands virtually no chance of becoming law. But President Trump’s erratic behavior following his coronavirus diagnosis and the secrecy surrounding his recovery have led to increased discussion among his opponents about whether he is fit to carry out his duties. Meanwhile, Trump has said he will not participate in the next debate after the Commission on Presidential Debates changed next Thursday’s debate to a virtual format due to the President’s Covid-19 diagnosis. It’s not clear what happens next. An in-person debate could be scheduled after Trump’s required quarantine period is over, or Joe Biden could end up doing the next debate solo, in a town hall format
