Nancy Pelosi Refuses to Endorse Joe Biden in Awkward MSNBC Interview

Any opinions expressed by authors in this article do not necessarily represent the views of

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to endorse President Joe Biden as the Democratic presidential nominee during a recent interview on MSNBC, adding to the growing damage against the Biden campaign as top Democrats jump ship.

Host Jonathan Lemire asked Pelosi, “Does Joe Biden have your support to head the Democratic ticket?”

Pelosi responded:

“It’s up to the president to decide if he is going to run.”

“We’re all encouraging him to make that decision. Because time is running short.”

When Lemire pushed further before, it became apparent that Pelosi was refusing to support Biden.

“I want him to do whatever he decides to do. And that’s the way it is. Whatever he decides, we go with.”

Pelosi’s lack of support is a sign that the Democratic Party is in for a rough ride, especially given that Biden is refusing to step down.

CNBC reported:

Former Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday refused to explicitly endorse President Joe Biden as the party’s presidential nominee, and encouraged her colleagues in Congress to pause from making public statements either for or against Biden.

“Let’s just hold off. Whatever you’re thinking, either tell somebody privately, but you don’t have to put that out on the table until we see how we go this week,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The comments were notable because Biden has repeatedly insisted he will not drop out of the race against former President Donald Trump, and said that his decision is final.

Pelosi’s carefully worded comments suggested that she believes Biden is still deciding whether or not to remain atop the ticket.
