President Joe Biden Faces Crucial Week as Democrats Return to Washington Amid Calls for Him to Step Aside

This week could be pivotal for President Joe Biden as Democrats return to Washington.

After a disastrous debate, some are calling for him to step aside.

At 81, Biden faces tough questions about his capability to run and whether he can beat Donald Trump in November.

Over the weekend, four more House Democrats urged Biden to leave the race, while others believe time is running out for him to prove he’s the right candidate.

Meanwhile, Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who might step in if Biden exits, are campaigning fervently.

Despite the growing calls for his withdrawal, President Biden has made it clear that he’s staying in the race.

He insists that Democratic voters still support him, contrary to what polls suggest.

In a letter to Congressional Democrats, Biden stated, “I am firmly committed to staying in this race, to running this race to the end, and to beating Donald Trump.”

Mixed Reactions

Jen Psaki, Biden’s former press secretary, commented on his recent ABC interview, saying it was only “okay.”

While some thought Biden appeared more prepared, others saw moments that didn’t go well.

Psaki noted that even a good interview might not shift public perception, with 72% of voters doubting Biden’s mental and cognitive health.

In the Republican camp, Ivanka Trump has become a staunch defender of her father, Donald Trump, despite her decision to stay out of politics.

She plans to attend the Republican National Convention in a personal capacity to support her father’s nomination.

First Lady Jill Biden is actively campaigning in states like North Carolina, Florida, and Georgia, hoping to secure wins for Biden in November.

Her trip includes launching Veterans and Military Families for Biden. However, she has yet to address media questions about Biden’s condition or whether she collaborated with staff to keep it hidden.

There’s a memo circulating among Democrats proposing a plan to replace Biden with a “blitz primary” involving candidates like Taylor Swift and Oprah.

This plan, backed by influential Democrats, aims to have Biden step down by mid-July to allow other candidates to enter the race.

Democratic lawmakers recently held a call to discuss Biden’s viability.

Some, including Judiciary Ranking Member Jerry Nadler and others, believe Vice President Kamala Harris should take Biden’s place.

Despite Biden’s insistence on staying, there is significant concern within the party about his ability to lead.

Calls for Biden to Step Up

Senator Chris Murphy and others suggest that Biden needs to do more to prove his capability.

Murphy recommends that Biden participate in town halls and press conferences to show he’s still the skilled politician he once was.

Detailed Instructions for Biden

Reports have emerged that Biden receives detailed instructions with pictures and large fonts for his public appearances.

These memos, provided by his aides, are designed to guide him on how to navigate events, including how to enter and exit rooms.

While the White House defends this as standard procedure, some event staff find it surprising for a seasoned politician to need such guidance.
