After polls show him losing some of his early lead following his first debate performance, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is addressing some of the criticism against him.

“I know I get criticized, ‘Biden says he can bring the country together,'” the former vice president said at a fundraiser this weekend. “Well, guess what? I refuse to accept, ‘He’s the old guy.’ I refuse to accept the status quo.”

Biden reportedly said that the “status quo will not sustain us,” adding that if America is united, “there’s not a damn thing we can’t do.”
