Fact Check: 2020 Video Of President Biden Falsely Shared As He May Resign Due To Medical Reasons


Amidst the ongoing debates on US President Joe Biden’s candidacy for the 2024 elections, a video featuring President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris is extensively circulating on social media. Many users claim that President Biden is discussing about his resignation due to medical reasons.

A Facebook user posted the video with a caption: Biden Says He May Resign The Presidency For Medical Reasons. 🤣

NewsMobile fact-checked the claim, and found it to be misleading.

Putting the video keyframes through Reverse Image Search, the NM team found the same video posted on YouTube, dated December 6, 2020, and titled: “Biden’s bizarre statement on ‘develop mystery disease’ to resign if he ever argues with VP Harris.”

In the video Biden can be heard saying, “But, all kidding aside, it’s a matter of thing, we are simpatico on our philosophy of government and simpatico on how we want to approach these issues that we’re facing. And so I don’t have… and when we disagree, it will be just like… so far, it has been just like when Barack and I did. It’s in private. She’ll say, I think we should do A, B, C, or D, and I will say, I like A, don’t like B and C. And let’s go, OK. And like I told Barack, if I reach something where there’s a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I will develop some disease and say I have to resign.”

We also found a transcript of the video interview by CNN, posted on December 3, 2020, titled: “Interview with President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.”

According to the transcript, the clip originally dates back to December 2020 and shows Biden responding to a reporter’s inquiry about the biggest surprise in working with Kamala Harris.

Thus, it is confirmed that the video is old and fake, as it does not show President Biden saying he may resign due to medical reasons ahead of the 2024 presidential elections.
