The New York Times calls on Joe Biden to withdraw from the race for the White House: The greatest public service he could perform

Steph Deschamps / June 29, 2024

 
On Friday, the editorial board of the prestigious New York Times newspaper called on President Joe Biden to withdraw from the race for the White House after his calamitous debate with Donald Trump the previous day.
 
In an editorial published Friday evening and entitled "To Serve the Country, President Biden Must Leave the Race" for the White House, the New York Times described Joe Biden as "the shadow of a leader", after the 81-year-old president "failed his own test".
 
Unrecognizable, Joe Biden swallowed words, didn't finish sentences and stared into space during Thursday's televised duel with his Republican predecessor.
 
"Mr. Biden has been an admirable president. Under his leadership, the nation has prospered and begun to address a series of long-term challenges, and the wounds opened by Mr. Trump have begun to heal. But the greatest public service Mr. Biden could perform today would be to announce that he will not seek re-election," wrote the New York Times.
 
Its editorial board is made up of renowned editorial writers and is supposed to reflect the values of the medium.
 
Members of the Democratic Party have also questioned Biden's ability to take on a new mandate, triggering a storm within the party, but Joe Biden assured them on Friday that he could "do the job", receiving in the process the support of two of his predecessors Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
