Hastings and his wife, Patty Quillin, have long been among the Democratic Party’s largest donors.

The co-founder and CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastingshas joined the growing number of Democrats publicly urging Joe Biden to resign as the party’s candidate for the presidency of the United States in 2024. Biden is seeking re-election, but his disastrous performance in the first presidential debate against Donald Trump has led some Democrats to insist that he resign, as they believe that is the only way the party can defeat Trump.

Biden must step aside to allow a vigorous Democratic leader to defeat Trump and keep us safe and prosperous,” Hastings said in an email to The New York Times.

According to The Times, Hastings and his wife, Patty Quillinhave long been among the largest donors to the Democratic Party. The couple has donated more than $20 million to the party in recent years, including $1.5 million to Biden’s 2020 campaign against Trump. The two donated $100,000 to support Biden’s 2024 campaign.

A Democratic sector asks Biden to withdraw his candidacy

Biden’s lackluster performance in the first presidential debate of 2024 has seemingly divided Democrats. “The View” co-host Sara Hainesproclaimed the morning after the debate that Biden needed to get out of the way if Democrats want to prevent Trump from becoming president again.

“I believe President Biden should resign and be replaced”“If we want to defeat Donald Trump in November, then I absolutely believe that … they have to act quickly, and I implore those closest to the president to have the very difficult conversations that they’re going to have to have and not just because of the political ramifications, but because of humanity, his integrity and his legacy. All of that is at stake right now.”

Alyssa Farah GriffinHaines’ co-host on “The View” agreed, saying, “Donald Trump is a threat to our democracy. We need someone who can defeat him… [Joe] He needs to put his country before his own ambition and he needs to step aside and pass the baton. Mark my words: if it’s Trump vs. Biden, it’s going to be Trump.”.

While reports have emerged that Biden is now considering withdrawing as the Democratic nominee amid criticism of his debate performance, White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierrehas assured the press that this is not the case.

“Absolutely not”Jean-Pierre said. “And I think you heard that directly from the campaign as well.”
