White House has heard no concerns from NATO allies about Biden's candidacy

Jul 9, 2024

On the eve of the NATO summit in Washington, the White House has assured that US allies do not need to be reassured about President Joe Biden's candidacy after his poor performance in the debate.

This was reported by CNN, according to Yevropeiska Pravda.


On Monday, the White House rejected the idea that Biden would have to reassure US allies of his fitness for office on the eve of the Alliance summit, the first major international event since his widely criticized debate performance.

"I think your question implies that they need to be reassured of American leadership and President Biden's commitment," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said in response to questions from the press on Monday.

Kirby added that the administration "sees no indication of that (concern) from our allies."

"Quite the opposite. The conversations we're having with them in advance indicate that they're excited about this summit," Kirby said.

He added that he was "not aware" of any conversations between allies expressing concern about the president's health, and that there were "certainly no such conversations with us."
