Rep. Crockett Urges Democrats to Unite Behind Biden, Citing Fear of Trump’s Return

0:00

Freshman Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) spoke out on MSNBC’s The Katie Phang Show, defending President Joe Biden against calls for him to withdraw from the race. Crockett attributed the discontent among some Democrats to fear of a second Trump administration, saying that even though the party is divided, this shared fear unites them.

Crockett argued that voters have already spoken through the Democratic primaries, and that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are the ticket. She emphasized the importance of respecting the democratic process and not subverting the will of the people based on polls.

The representative from Dallas also pushed back against the notion that Biden’s mental acuity is a concern, citing his ability to perform his duties as president. She suggested that if polling were indicative of election outcomes, Trump “never would have” been president, and that Democrats would not have overperformed in recent elections.

Crockett also addressed the motivations behind Democratic calls for Biden to step aside, suggesting that they are driven by fear rather than a desire to replace him with someone else. She pleaded with Democrats to unite around the ticket and stay the course, warning that infighting would only benefit Republicans in November.

The comments come as Biden’s mental acuity has been scrutinized following his performance at the first presidential debate. Despite the doubts surrounding his candidacy, a new poll released Saturday showed him gaining ground against Trump in swing states.
