Washington, Jul 5 (EFE).- US President Joe Biden on Friday took the blame for his poor debate with former President Donald Trump (2017-2021), saying it was not a reflection of “something serious” happening to him and saying he did not remember whether he had seen that dialectical face-to-face afterwards.

“It was my fault alone, not anyone else’s. It was a bad episode, nothing serious. I was exhausted. I didn’t listen to my instincts,” he said in an excerpt from the interview given to ABC, which will broadcast the entire interview on Friday.

In his June 27 debate with Trump, he was seen to be hesitant and unable to finish some sentences or to refute the lies of the former Republican president, who at one point in that encounter went so far as to say that not even Biden knew what he was saying.

The Biden family has privately expressed exasperation in recent days over how the president was prepared for the debate by his advisers, criticizing them for making him practice excessively, which is why he was exhausted by the time the debate took place.

The current White House resident repeated on Friday that he had a bad cold and that his doctors had tested him for any infection, which came back negative.

Biden insisted that it was a “bad night” in which he felt “terrible.” A bad night that has set off alarm bells in the Democratic ranks, among whom there are already those who have loudly expressed their desire for him to withdraw and for the party to put forward another candidate.

Asked if he saw his speech afterwards, the president said he did not remember: “I don’t think so.”
