Joe Biden angry speech

With the constantly growing pressure from Democrats for President Biden to step out of the race of president, we’ve reported on a number of different possibilities, from rumors that he would announce his withdrawal on Monday to even a scheme that would pave the way for former President Barack Obama to spend another four years in the White House. So far, however, the president has steadfastly refused to step down.

In fact, according to a number of media reports, on Monday, a day after prominent House Democrats joined calls for him to drop out, rather than stepping aside Biden doubled down, sending a defiant letter to congressional Democrats declaring that he has no plans to get out of the race.

“Now that you have returned from the July 4th recess, I want you to know that despite all the speculation in the press and elsewhere, I am firmly committed to staying in this race, to running this race to the end and to beating Donald Trump,” Biden wrote in the letter.

Biden further said in the letter that those wanting him to drop out of the race are going against the will of the party, since he easily won the Democratic primary.

“The voters of the Democratic Party have voted,” he wrote. “They have chosen me to be the nominee of the  party. Do we now just say this process didn’t matter? That the voters don’t have a say? I decline to do that. I feel a deep obligation to the faith and the trust the voters of the Democratic Party have placed in me to run this year.”

Additionally, Biden wrote that it is time for the conversation about who will run against Trump to be over.

“We have one job, and that is to beat Donald Trump,” he said. “We have 42 days to the Democratic Convention and 119 days to the general election. Any weakening of resolve or lack of clarity about the task ahead only helps Trump and hurts us. It is time to come together, move forward as a unified party, and defeat Donald Trump.”

Despite Biden’s defiance, some in Congress don’t seem ready to back down on their calls for him to drop out and let someone else run against Trump. According to media reports, Senate Democrats are set to discuss the matter at a breakfast Tuesday morning, and House Democrats are set to discuss it over lunch.

Of course, who runs on the Democrat side of the presidential race is of critical importance to American gun owners. While Trump has pledged his support for the Second Amendment and during his first term nominated dozens of conservative judges, none of the Democrats mentioned to possibly replace Biden are any less anti-gun than he is.
