Who has more to prove in the first 2024 debate between Biden and Trump

Season 2024 Episode 25 | 13m 18s

President Biden and the man he defeated in 2020, Donald Trump, will make their respective cases to the American people in a debate next week. Both are unpopular, they are more or less tied in recent polls, and both men are older than our previous oldest president. Only one is a convicted felon, yet the pressure is on Biden to prove that he has what it takes to continue in office.

Major funding for “Washington Week with The Atlantic” is provided by Consumer Cellular, Otsuka, Kaiser Permanente, the Yuen Foundation, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
