US President Joe Biden has said that he is more qualified to become US President or win the race than anyone else. He also called former US President Donald Trump a “pathological liar,” ABC News reported.

Speaking to ABC News, Biden called Trump a “congenital liar” and added that he lied over 20 times during the debate with him.

Asked about the close contest in the electoral college, Biden responded, “By 7 million votes.”

When asked about being behind in the popular vote now, the US President stated, “I don’t buy that.” He further said, “I don’t think anybody’s more qualified to be President or win this race than me.”

Dismissing any suggestion that he’s not the most qualified candidate to beat Trump, Biden said, “Oh, come on. Well, I don’t think those critics know what they’re talking about.”

On being asked whether the critics are wrong, the US President said, “They’re just wrong. Look, Trump is a pathological liar. Trump is, you ever seen anything Trump did that benefited somebody else and not him? You can’t answer, I know.”

He criticised Trump for his policies in the economy and healthcare sectors. Biden said that Trump asked the people of the US to put bleach in their arms to deal with COVID-19.

“Oh, I know you have. I’m not being critical. I’m not being critical, but look, I mean, the man is a congenital liar. As I said, they pointed out in that debate, he lied 27– 28 times– times, whatever number, over 20 times. Talk about how good his economy was, how he brought down inflation, how this is a guy who unlike only other President other than him is Hoover who lost more jobs than he created,” Biden told ABC News.

“This is a guy who told us to put bleach in our arms to deal with COVID, with a million– over a million people died. This is a guy who talks about wanting to get rid of the healthcare provision we put in place. This is a guy who wants to give the power back to big pharma to be able to charge exorbitant prices for drugs. This is a guy who wants to undo every single thing I’ve done, every single thing,” he added.

During the interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden reiterated that he is the most qualified person to beat Trump. He said, “I convinced myself of two things. I’m the most qualified person to beat him, and I know how to get things done.”

Reflecting on how he will feel if he loses to Trump, Biden said, “I’ll feel as long as I gave it my all and I did the goodest job as I know I can do, that’s what this is about.”

Biden said that the US and the world are at an “inflection point” when the things that happen in the next several years will determine what the next 60-70 years will be like.

He further said, “And who’s gonna be able to hold NATO together like me? Who’s gonna be able to be in a position where I’m able to keep the Pacific Basin in a position where we’re– we’re at least checkmating China now? Who’s gonna, who’s gonna do that? Who has that reach? Who has– who knows all these pe? We’re gonna have, I guess a good way to judge me, is you’re gonna have now the NATO conference here in the United States next week. Come listen. See what they say.”

Joe Biden candidly addressed his performance during the debate with Trump, describing it as a “bad episode” and taking full responsibility for what transpired. It was Biden’s first television interview since the CNN debate with Donald Trump. (ANI)

‘93% Republicans back Trump’

As clouds of uncertainty continue to gloom over US President Joe Biden’s campaign, a new Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report has stated that the incumbent leader has failed to consolidate support within his party as compared to his rival.

The report stated that unifying the party is the most important job for any presidential candidate, but Biden is “bleeding Democratic support” in the latest poll, conducted after his “rough debate” with Trump.

Biden has the votes of 86 per cent of Democrats on a test ballot against Trump, the new poll found, lower than his 9 per cent share in February and well below the 93 per cent of Republicans who say they would back Trump.

It added that the incumbent has allowed the race to become “referendum on his leadership” rather than a choice between him and an “unpopular challenger.”

Meanwhile, in his first television interview since the CNN debate with Donald Trump, President Joe Biden described candidly addressed his performance, describing it as a “bad episode” and taking full responsibility for what transpired.

“It was a bad episode,” Biden clarified. “No indication of any serious condition. I was exhausted. I didn’t listen to my instincts in terms of preparing and — and a bad night.”

Biden also claimed that he is more qualified to win the race than anyone else.

Speaking to ABC News, Biden called Trump a “congenital liar” and added that he lied over 20 times during the debate with him.

Earlier, White House too unequivocally denied any consideration of President Joe Biden stepping down, with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stating “absolutely not” when asked about the possibility.

Concerns are mounting about Biden’s viability as a candidate following the first presidential debate broadcasted on CNN, which has been described as a “devastating performance” in Atlanta, according to a New York Times (NYT) report.

The age disparity between the 81-year-old incumbent US president and his 78-year-old challenger was starkly apparent throughout the evening, with Biden notably hoarse and exhibiting limited vocal range, struggling at times to articulate clear differences from Trump.

Earlier, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed that several prominent Democrat leaders have suggested that US President Biden is “brain-damaged” and it is only a matter of time before they remove him from running for the post again.

After the debate, former US President Barack Obama voiced his support for Biden, acknowledging that “bad debate nights happen”. (ANI)
