WASHINGTON, DC: Alyssa Farah Griffin, who served as the White House director of strategic communications during Donald Trump's presidency, discussed why the former president hasn't seized upon Joe Biden's poor debate performance for political gain on the Monday, July 8 episode of 'The View'. 

She remarked, "There’s a reason Donald Trump isn’t out there shouting about the debate," as the panelists were engaged in a conversation about whether the incumbent should consider ending his 2024 reelection campaign.

Biden has faced increased scrutiny following the June 27 debate, during which he appeared dazed and struggled with several responses.

She conceded, "Not in policy terms and what he has gotten done, but when he speaks and his appearances. That concerns me." Hostin then said, "Behind every great man is a great woman," describing Harris as "prepared," "ready," and "presidential."

She voiced concern over Biden dropping out of the race, questioning whether Americans would elect a Black woman, pointing out Hillary Clinton's 2016 loss. Nevertheless, a hopeful Hostin remarked, "If he [Biden] cannot complete a four-year term, we know we are protected."
