Report: Biden skipped meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at 2022 G7 summit, went to bed early

President Biden skips meeting with German chancellor at G7 event, heads to bed instead

President Biden’s decision to skip out on a meeting with the German chancellor during a G7 event has raised eyebrows and sparked controversy. According to reports, Biden opted to head to bed early instead of attending the scheduled evening meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

The meeting, which was supposed to be a secret discussion about Ukraine, ended up taking place between Chancellor Scholz and Secretary of State Antony Blinken after Biden decided to call it a night. While German officials reportedly knew about Biden’s preference to retire early, a State Department spokesperson denied claims that the president needed to rest.

Despite pushback from the White House, reports suggest that Biden’s absence from the meeting was a deliberate choice, with the president focusing on both international and domestic matters during the summit. However, concerns about Biden’s stamina and fitness for office have been amplified, especially after a lackluster debate performance last month.

As Biden gears up to face off against former President Donald Trump in the upcoming election, the scrutiny surrounding his health and ability to fulfill his duties as president continues to grow. With his closest aides taking steps to limit his exposure to travel, media interactions, and congressional engagements, the question remains: Is President Biden up for the task ahead?
