President Joe Biden says he has been asked by former President Jimmy Carter, who is under hospice care, to give his eulogy when he dies.

Biden's comments came Monday at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser and were attributed to a White House pool report. His remarks were reported by multiple news outlets, including CNN.

"He asked me to do his eulogy – excuse me, I shouldn't say that," Biden said at the fundraiser in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

"I spent time with Jimmy Carter, and it's finally caught up with him. But they found a way to keep him going for a lot longer than they anticipated, because they found a breakthrough."

CNN reported that Biden was likely referring to Carter's cancer fight in 2015.

Last month, a statement by the Carter Center said that after a series of short hospital stays, the former president "decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention," according to the Associated Press.

The statement said the former president had entered home hospice care in Plains, Georgia.

CNN reported that Biden had been advised of Carter's failing health and his decision to seek hospice care. Biden reportedly was staying in contact with the Carter family.
