The US President Joe Biden has informed a group of Democratic governors that he needs more sleep and will from now work fewer hours, including avoiding events scheduled after 8 PM.

According to the New York Times, this occurred during a meeting intended to reassure over two dozen key supporters of his ongoing dedication to his role and his readiness to undertake a vigorous campaign against Republican Donald Trump.


The 81-year-old President’s comments about needing more rest suggested his awareness of growing concerns over his increasing and more noticeable slips in recent months. His faltering performance at last month’s presidential debate was heavily criticized and has so far caused panic among Democrats.

Joe Biden’s Determination

Despite these concerns, Joe Biden has affirmed his determination to remain in the presidential race during his meeting with governors, some of whom were physically present at the White House while others joined virtually.


According to several sources, the report stated that Biden attributed his recent performance issues to his extensive international travels leading up to the debate. Both the White House and his allies have pointed to this as the reason for his halting performance.


Joe Biden’s Performance

Initially, his campaign attributed his performance to a cold. However, the President later admitted to pushing himself too hard and ignoring advice about his schedule. He acknowledged the need for a lighter workload and more rest, especially avoiding late-night events.

Biden’s Health Joke

During the meeting, Joe Biden joked about his health, saying, “I’m fine — I don’t know about my brain, though.” His campaign chair, Jen O’Malley Dillon, later clarified that he was “clearly making a joke.”


While some governors privately expressed concerns about Biden continuing his campaign, none explicitly recommended that he withdraw from the race, according to the report.

However, on a separate occasion, Biden reportedly confided in allies that he understands he may not be able to secure a second term if he cannot effectively demonstrate his abilities to voters following the debate.
