Pelosi dodges on Biden reelection bid: 'I want him to do whatever he decides to do'

2 days ago 2

Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi was non-committal when asked if she supported President Joe Biden continuing his reelection bid — something the incumbent has told Hill Democrats he would do.

Asked directly following Biden’s letter pledging to stay in the race, Pelosi told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”: “I want him to do whatever he decides to do.”

The morning appearance highlights the simmering Capitol Hill concerns about Biden’s viability against former President Donald Trump.

Pelosi, for her part, urged a hold on such discussions until after the president finishes hosting the NATO summit this week. Biden will have a press conference on Thursday.

“It's up to the president to decide if he is going to run,” she said. “We're all encouraging him to make that decision. Because time is running short."

Pelosi is one of the most visible and respected senior figures in the party — and her words carry great weight among rank-and-file members. She previously expressed “full confidence” in Biden and spoke glowingly of his record in office on Wednesday morning.
