On Wednesday, President Joe Biden made a stunning admission that he has suffered from cancer.
Biden made the admission to reporters while describing the health effects of emissions from oil refineries near his childhood home in Claymont, Del.
“That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer and why for the longest time Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation,” Biden said to reporters.

The White House has yet to release any additional information on President Biden’s remarks.
Did Biden just give shocking insight into his much-talked-about health journey or is this yet another gaffe?
Biden spent "a good deal of time in the Sun in his youth," White House doc noted and "he has had several non-melanoma skin cancers removed."
