WASHINGTON, DC: In a recent broadcast on NewsNation’s 'The Hill' on Wednesday, July 3, Democrat Wiley Nickel shared his thoughts on President Joe Biden's fitness for office, as reported by Breitbart.

While asserting his belief in Biden's capabilities to lead the nation, Nickel strongly emphasized the need for POTUS to directly confront public doubts and engage much more openly with the American people.

Nickel straightforwardly voiced his concerns, highlighting the growing need for Biden to address the American public head-on.

"I think what he needs to do is he needs to get out there in front of the American public, he needs to answer the tough questions, no holds barred from reporters," Nickel stated. This call for transparency comes in the wake of Biden's limited visibility post-debate, raising questions about his ability to manage the demands of his role.

Nickel urged Biden to make appearances in diverse districts, including his own in North Carolina's 13th district, to reassure Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike. Despite expressing confidence in Biden's capability, Nickel stressed that he needs to actively demonstrate his fitness for the job.

"He needs to get out there and make the case himself," Nickel reiterated, adding that Biden must prove his competence to the American public following what he described as a "bad debate."

Nickel's comments also touched on the broader political landscape, particularly the looming presence of former President Donald Trump. "We've got to do everything we can to stop Donald Trump," Nickel declared, indicating the high stakes of the upcoming election.

Despite the concerns, Nickel pointed out that these issues could detract from the real threat posed by "what a disaster Donald Trump would be."

In response to the growing scrutiny, Biden addressed the issue in a fundraising email, firmly stating his commitment to the race, according to CBS 17.

"I’m the Democratic Party’s nominee. No one is pushing me out. I’m not leaving, I’m in this race to the end," the email read. Biden's determination to remain in the race comes amid calls from three House Democrats for him to step down.

Biden's recent engagement with Democratic governors, including a virtual meeting attended by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, further demonstrated his resolve. Cooper, a significant ally for Biden, released a statement following the meeting, describing it as a "good meeting" and affirming Biden's intention to run for reelection.

"President Biden told us he is definitely running for reelection, he is our nominee and we’ll continue doing everything we can to deliver North Carolina for him," Cooper remarked.
