Greg Swenson has highlighted the 'decline' in US President Joe Biden's cognitive abilities, as the American leader meets the Brazilian President in New York.

Speaking on Britain's Newsroom, the Chairman of Republicans Overseas UK discussed new polling from America, suggesting that voters do not want Biden to run again in 2024.

Swenson said: “He's not exactly a great orator and I think we’ve seen such a change in his cognitive abilities. And this is one of the reasons why he's never actually made the case to the Congress or to the people in America. He's just done this in a very incremental way, and that's not good for support from Americans and from the Senate and the House.

“But it's also not good for Zelensky and Ukraine. You know, this this incrementalism where at first it was non-lethal and then it was lethal, but not tanks and not planes and not long-range missiles. So, you know, this long process that he's engaged in has not really been successful. And now both Zelensky and Biden are going to run into some pushback, both in the House and the Senate.

Swenson continued: “I think they'll be okay, I think they'll be successful, but the timing's not good. You've got a $2 trillion deficit thanks to Biden's reckless spending. You've got bad timing with the potential government shutdown next week. And then also the context, you know, is right now, you know, Biden released $6 billion to Iran last week. And where do you think that's going to go? Humanitarian aid? I doubt it. It's going to go to fund missiles for the Russians."

Britain's Newsroom host Andrew Pierce asked: "Are Americans talking openly about the decline in his cognitive ability?"

Swenson replied: "Yes, they are. Yes, 61% think that he committed some sort of bribery or influence peddling. 75% think that he should not run for president. Again, 2/3 of Democrats think he's they they're a little more polite about it. They say he's too old, but what they're really saying is he's got cognitive challenges."

Watch the discussion in full above.
