On Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time, Joe Biden will hold a press conference as part of this year’s NATO summit, as the political world continues to examine whether he is fit for office since his botched performance in the debate against Donald Trump.

Since his dismal performance at the debate two weeks ago, some Democrats have openly questioned whether he should still represent the party, while others have outright called for him to drop out of the race altogether.

Senator Michael Bennett (D-Colorado) delivered a scathing assessment of Biden’s re-election campaign in a CNN interview Tuesday night, warning that Trump could “overwhelmingly defeat the incumbent Democrat and take the Senate and the House with him.” And on Wednesday morning, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) appeared to question whether Biden should remain the Democratic nominee during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

This change of course comes after most Democrats in Congress, which reconvened this week, have so far refrained from publicly calling on Biden to withdraw after his disastrous performance in the US debate last month – even though many have expressed serious concerns about whether Biden can win against Trump.

All eyes are on Biden, who is reaffirming the US commitment to the intergovernmental alliance at the summit in Washington marking NATO’s 75th anniversary. Biden’s responses to reporters’ questions and the manner in which he delivers the answers are a key test at this stage of the election cycle.
