Joe Biden has been notably struggling with his health in recent weeks. The 81-year-old President of the USA is seeking re-election, but instead of focusing on his successes, the media is increasingly reporting on his health issues. The Daily Mail claims to have sensational information. Some former U.S. presidents may force him to withdraw from the race for another term.

Questions about President Joe Biden's condition and health are becoming more common. At a ceremony in Los Angeles, the head of state suddenly freezes, staring at the crowd below the stage. He is aided by former President of the United States, Barack Obama. Obama grabs Biden's hand and leads him off the stage.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on a decline in the cognitive functions of the 81-year-old president. The journal cites sources close to Biden, who claimed that the president speaks too quietly during meetings and takes long pauses during monologues.

The White House spokesperson denies these reports and assures that Biden feels excellent. The Daily Mail emphasizes that the current President of the United States has decreasing approval ratings, currently around 37%. Voters fear that health issues may impact Joe Biden's ability to govern the United States. As a result, there are increasing calls to replace the Democratic candidate in the November presidential elections.

Who will force Joe Biden to step down? In the background: Obama and Clinton

The Daily Mail reports that a televised debate between Biden and Trump is scheduled for the end of June on CNN. The current president wants to prove that he is in excellent condition. However, journalists highlight that the debate could completely undermine him.

If Biden loses, a "unified Democratic front" will be needed to dissuade him from seeking re-election. - The only people who could force him out would be Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. It would have to be the four of them collectively - the Daily Mail writes, citing information from Democratic strategists.

A potential new candidate would have to deliver a speech at the convention in August in the style of Barack Obama's 2004 speech, which allowed him to attract undecided voters. However, this could be a very risky move. A new candidate who fails in the November elections might never return to politics.

According to the Daily Mail, Biden may not be willing to step aside and might fight for victory until the end because "he is proud of his achievements," which are "more significant than the triumphs of other contemporary presidents."
