Joe Biden’s inner circle: who else does the US president listen to?

Stubbornness in old age is cute with strangers, exhausting in the family and dangerous in the White House. Joe Biden, it seems at the moment, is increasingly confusing his interests with those of his party. Maybe even with those of his country. He is the only one who can prevent the Trumpocalypse, after all, he is the only one who has ever beaten the Republican, the 81-year-old US President repeatedly emphasizes.

Many had hoped – not without reason – that Biden would see himself as an interim president. As the man of the middle and of reason who would initiate the healing process after four years of Trump and then pass the baton to a new generation. Four years later, successful on paper but pale in everyday life, the oldest man in the world these days has no intention of retiring.

Biden’s kitchen cabinet holds the fate of the USA in its hands

The catastrophic exchange of blows with his challenger, Donald Trump, who is almost the same age, had made it all too clear how much a breath of fresh air from the left was needed. But Biden still shows no sign of insight. Instead, the embattled incumbent is trying to nip a looming mutiny in the bud. But the genie is long out of the bottle. Biden’s poll numbers are plummeting, there is a lot of unrest in the party, and influential donors are threatening to jump ship.

But no matter how many party colleagues, supporters and commentators beg Biden to step down, the US president only listens to his inner circle – and has done so for decades. This “kitchen cabinet” may now decide the fate of the USA.
