A woman assumed the powers of the presidency for the first time in US history after President Joe Biden temporarily transferred power to Vice President Kamala Harris.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Joe Biden resumed his presidential duties at 11.35 a.m. (4.35 p.m. Irish time) on Friday, after being sedated for a colonoscopy.
Mrs. Harris, the first female Vice President, made history during her short tenure as Acting President.
The White House previously said Biden underwent a «routine colonoscopy» at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
He drove early today to the Washington Suburbs Medical Center for his first routine physical exam as president.
“As was the case when President George W. Bush performed the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, following the process stipulated in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for a brief period of time while he is under sedation,” Ms. Psaki said before the colonoscopy.
«The Vice President will be working from her office in the West Wing during this time.»
Mr. Biden, 78, is the oldest person to hold the office of President of the United States, and interest in his health has been high since he announced his candidacy for the White House in 2019.
