President Joe Biden has stated unequivocally to his fellow Democratic Party lawmakers that he has no intention of stepping down as the party’s candidate for the upcoming presidential election in November. Despite facing pressure following several verbal missteps during a televised debate with his Republican opponent, Donald Trump, Biden made it clear on Monday that now is not the time to discuss his withdrawal.

Speculation has arisen that if Biden were to decline to run again, Vice President Kamala Harris might be nominated to take his place on the Democratic Party’s presidential ticket for the November 5 election.

In a letter addressed to congressional Democrats on Monday, Biden stood firm on his candidacy, urging an end to the internal party conflicts that have divided Democrats since his widely publicized debate.

“The discussion on how to move forward has been thoroughly aired for over a week now, and it’s time to bring it to a close,” Biden emphasized in his letter.

Biden’s letter emerged as lawmakers returned to Washington, where they will decide whether to support him or encourage him to withdraw from the 2024 presidential race. This decision is seen as critical to Biden’s reelection prospects and the future of the Democratic Party.

Despite acknowledging the scrutiny of his performance in the debate, Biden underscored that the Democratic Party’s primary objective remains defeating Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee.

“We have 42 days until the Democratic Convention and 119 days until the general election. Any wavering in resolve or lack of clarity about our mission ahead only serves to benefit Trump and harm our cause. It’s time to unite as a cohesive party, move forward, and defeat Donald Trump,” Biden concluded in his letter, which was disseminated by his reelection campaign officials.
