In a recent ABC News interview on Friday, US President Joe Biden addressed concerns about his health and chances for re-election following a tough debate with Donald Trump. Biden, aged 81, admitted he had a “bad night,” citing exhaustion and illness as reasons for his poor performance in debate held on 27 June. Despite calls within his party to step down, Biden insisted only “Lord Almighty” could make him quit, affirming he’s the most qualified to lead.

During the interview, Biden rejected claims of cognitive decline, saying he takes daily tests and can handle his presidential duties. He blamed his debate performance on personal lapses in preparation, not health issues, explaining he was battling severe cold.

Biden stated that major Democratic leaders haven’t asked him to quit the race, emphasizing his commitment to beat Trump based on past wins, despite polls showing a tight contest. Concerns about Biden’s health and capability continue, with calls for more transparency. Congressman Ro Khanna highlighted the importance of Biden addressing these concerns from the media and voters.

Despite facing scrutiny, Biden remains determined to continue campaigning vigorously. At a rally in Wisconsin, a crucial swing state, he reiterated his commitment to staying in the race and defeating Trump. Biden highlighted his administration’s achievements and brushed off criticisms about his age.

Meanwhile, former US President Trump declined a similar interview offer from ABC News in response to Biden’s remarks. The ongoing debate about Biden’s fitness and electoral chances highlights the intense scrutiny presidential candidates face ahead of the November elections.

In his interview, Biden sought to reassure both supporters and critics about his ability and resolve to lead for another term, despite political hurdles and questions about his health.
