Joe Biden says only ‘Lord Almighty’ could convince him to quit White House race

US President Joe Biden insisted that his goal was to defeat his Republican rival and former President Donald Trump, adding that only “Lord Almighty” could persuade him to withdraw himself from the race, The Guardian reported.

His remarks came amid a section of Democrats calling on the 81-year-old president to pull himself out of the race following a shaky performance at the June 27 presidential debate, which saw slip-ups, stammering and perceived loss of train of thought.

Biden, who is the oldest US President, has been under the scanner over his mental health and age concerns and whether he is fit to serve another four-year term. The Democrat leader has repeatedly insisted he was fine.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, Biden said, “Look. I mean, if the Lord Almighty came down and said, ‘Joe, get outta the race’, I’d get out of the race,” he said, adding, “The Lord Almighty’s not coming down.”
