During Biden’s latest speech in his home state of Delaware, he announced he has cancer.
When talking about the oil refineries in Delaware causing pollution Biden was directly quoted saying ‘that’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer”.
Watch him say it here:

Is it true?
Or is the Commander in Chief confused?

The White House immediately released a statement saying Biden previously had skin cancer but has since been cleared of any cancer.
The only problem is Biden didn’t say he HAD cancer but rather he said many people in Delaware including “me” HAVE cancer.
The Daily Mail added these details:
President Joe Biden on Wednesday recalled how pollution in Delaware gave him and several others cancer as he stopped short of declaring a national emergency on climate change during a major speech on the issue.
Biden noted he grew up in Claymont, Delaware, which is the site of many oil refineries.
‘You’d have to put on your windshield wipers to get literally the oil slick off the window,’ he said of the pollution.
‘That’s why I — and so damn many other people I grew up with — have cancer,’ he said.
Biden had several non-melanoma skin cancers removed before he became president. In his report on Biden’s November 2021 physical, Dr. Kevin O’Connor noted the president is still monitored for lesions.
‘There are no areas for suspicious for skin cancer at this time,’ O’Connor wrote, adding no biopsies were required.

The New York Post added these details to the story:
Biden said Wednesday that he has cancer, forcing the White House press office to quickly clarify that he was referring to skin cancer treatment that he had before taking office last year.
The remark initially appeared to be a stunningly casual health announcement during a speech about global warming in which the president described 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.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates referred The Post to a tweet from Washington Post columnist Glenn Kessler, who noted that Biden had “non-melanoma skin cancers” removed before he took office.
It’s unclear why Biden chose to use the present verb tense to describe his experience with cancer.
