Inside a despondent White House: Aides gripped by unease as Biden's political future remains uncertain

·1 min

As concerns mount over President Joe Biden’s political future, anxiety and unease grip the White House following his disastrous debate performance last month. Staffers at all levels, both young and seasoned, have been trying to make sense of Biden’s shaky 90-plus minutes on the debate stage. The White House has been inundated with devastating headlines casting doubt on Biden’s ability to continue his reelection campaign.
