White House Pushes Back On Report That Joe Biden Plans To Discuss Campaign’s Future With Family

The White House is pushing back on an NBC News report that Joe Biden is planning to discuss the future of his campaign with family members at Camp David on Sunday, following the fallout from the president’s debate performance against Donald Trump.

The network, quoting five unnamed sources, reported that Biden was scheduled to join his children and grandchildren and First Lady Jill Biden at the presidential retreat, where he had been in a prep session for nearly a week.

But Andrew Bates, a White House official, wrote on X/Twitter that the Camp David trip was publicly announced on June 23. In their story, NBC News did note that the trip to Camp David as planned before the debate.

Bates wrote that NBC News “never came to us for comment about it at all. I hope standards are not in decline.” A Biden official also told pool reporters that “the premise of the story is not accurate.” Officials also said that the Biden family was planning to take a group photo at Camp David.

Jen O’Malley Dillon, chair of the campaign, sent a memo to supporters today in which she noted post-debate polls showed “what we expected: The debate did not change the horse race.”

“If we do see changes in polling in the coming weeks, it will not be the first time that overblown media narratives have driven temporary dips in the polls,” she wrote.
