Incumbent US President Joe Biden will not drop out of the election race after the debate with his rival Donald Trump. Commenting on his performance, he said that it was "hard to debate a liar."

In particular, Biden's campaign staff has rejected the possibility that Biden will withdraw his candidacy for the US presidential election in favor of another Democratic candidate. This was reported by the American newspaper The Hill.

"Of course, he (Biden – Ed.) will not refuse to participate," Biden's campaign spokesman Seth Shuster wrote in a text message.

Commenting on the debate, Biden himself, stopping at a Waffle House diner, deflected talk of whether he should withdraw.

"No. It's hard to argue with a liar. The New York Times said he lied 26 times," he said, referring to Trump.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, on the evening of June 27, a debate took place in Atlanta, during which Biden and Trump clashed over many hot topics. Both politicians did not greet each other either before or after the meeting.

Biden's performance with "stumbling, repeated lines, coughing, misstatements" raised concerns about his "physical fitness and visual acuity" and caused panic among Democrats. The party has resumed discussions about whether the 81-year-old politician should be a candidate at all, according to the American media.

During the debate, Biden and Trump, among other things, touched on the war in Ukraine. Trump once again accused Biden of launching Russia's full-scale aggression and promised to end the war "before he is elected," allegedly by making sure that "Zelensky and Putin get along."

Trump also lied again about President Volodymyr Zelenskyy allegedly bringing $60 billion to Ukraine after every trip to the United States, which, according to Trump, "has to stop."

Biden, for his part, called Russian dictator Vladimir Putin a war criminal and warned that Moscow could expand its aggression, in particular to Poland.
