New York Times editorial board calls on Biden to drop out of 2024 presidential race | 28 June 2024 | The New York Times editorial board called on Joe Biden to suspend his campaign after his shaky debate performance against former President Trump on Thursday. The 81-year-old Biden appeared on the Atlanta, Ga., debate stage with a hoarse voice and a slight cough. The issue of his age and mental competency has been a sore point for his campaign and the debate was seen as an opportunity to show the country he is still fit to serve. His performance sparked widespread fear among Democrats and reignited the conversation about whether Biden should step down and allow someone else to take on Trump. Biden's campaign and the White House have said he's not going anywhere. "He struggled to explain what he would accomplish in a second term. He struggled to respond to Mr. Trump's provocations..." the Times said. “More than once, he struggled to make it to the end of a sentence."
