Biden Told ‘Joe GET OUT of the RACE’

On Sunday, Democrats convened in private as pressure built on President Biden to withdraw from the race.


On Sunday afternoon, leading Democrats on House panels participated in a virtual meeting led by House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.


Fox News has heard that a number of Democrats serving on House committees have voiced doubts over Biden’s potential to successfully seek reelection against the outgoing President Trump. According to Fox, the majority of Democrats on the call who recommended Biden drop out of the race agreed that the party should concentrate on Vice President Kamala Harris as a possible replacement.


On Sunday, Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Mark Takano (D-Calif.), Don Beyer (D-Va.), and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) all quietly stated that they thought Joe Biden ought to withdraw from the presidential contest as the Democratic nominee. According to two persons familiar with the meeting, the majority of them likewise stated that Harris ought to be the nominee, as reported by The Associated Press.


Beyer released a statement after learning of the meeting and its reporting.

“Governor Biden has my backing.” The congressman declared, “I am in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket and am looking forward to helping defeat Donald Trump in November.” “I was proud to host an event this week in Northern Virginia with the President, and will continue doing all I can to support the Biden-Harris campaign in Virginia and across the country.”


Following Biden’s 22-minute interview with ABC News on Friday, which the Biden team believed would allay concerns that the president lacks the necessary skills to carry on the campaign and unseat former President Donald Trump, a meeting was suggested.


Rather, the interview stoked fresh concerns among Democrats already unsettled by Biden’s appalling performance in the debate.


After the interview, chief Washington correspondent for ABC News Jonathan Karl said, “Look, Biden looked better and certainly more coherent than he looked during the debate, but there’s nothing in this interview that is calming the nerves of jittery Democrats who fear that Joe Biden is on a trajectory to lose this race, to lose to Donald Trump.”


At one point, Biden, nevertheless, declared that he would not withdraw unless “the Lord Almighty were to come down and say, ‘Joe, get outta the race.'” This was a combative tone.
