Stephanopoulos: Biden Can't Make Another Four Years

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos revealed he doesn't think President Biden can serve four more years in office just days after their high-stakes interview. 

TMZ obtained video of Stephanopoulos on the streets of New York City on Tuesday where he was asked whether he thought Biden should step down. 

"I don't think he can serve four more years," Stephanopoulos responded. 

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates pointed Fox News Digital to comments made at Tuesday's press briefing by White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who told Fox News' Peter Doocy that the president is committing to serve a full second term in office. The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment.

A spokesperson for ABC News told Fox News Digital "George expressed his own point of view and not the position of ABC News." 

"Earlier today I responded to a question from a passerby. I shouldn’t have," Stephanopoulous said through a spokesperson.

Stephanopoulos sat down with Biden for the president's first national interview since his disastrous debate performance last month, which has sparked unprecedented calls from members of the media and even a growing number of Democrats for him to withdraw from the 2024 race.

The ABC interview was widely seen as a test for Biden to show he has the mental capacity to continue his reelection bid. However, the 22-minute sit-down has not eased tensions within his party.
