President Biden Addresses Debate Concerns with Black Radio Hosts: ‘I Made a Mistake’


In an effort to quell concerns over his performance at the first 2024 presidential debate, President Joe Biden engaged in candid conversations with two black radio hosts, acknowledging his regret and desire to move forward.

The president’s interviews with WMCS in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and WURD in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, aired on Independence Day, offering a glimpse into his state of mind following the debate. Biden told host Andrea Lawful-Sanders on WURD that voters should not be concerned about his age or mental faculties, citing his three and a half years of accomplishments in the White House.

“I had a bad debate, but 90 minutes onstage does not erase what I’ve done for three and a half years,” Biden emphasized. “I led our economy back from the brink. It’s improving and lowered prescription drug costs. I worked with Republicans to expand veterans healthcare, rallied 50 nations to stand against Putin. I’m proud of the record, and we just got to keep moving.”

In a separate interview with WMCS, Biden described his debate performance as a “bad night” and acknowledged his mistake. “The fact of the matter is that I screwed up. I made a mistake,” he said. “That’s 90 minutes onstage. Look at what I’ve done in 3.5 years.”

The president’s campaign is scheduled to continue in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in the coming days, with a focus on addressing concerns within his own party.
