Mediaite editor in chief Aidan McLaughlin speaks with Nicholas Kristof, the veteran foreign correspondent and New York Times columnist, about his call for President Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 race. Kristof has been supportive of the Biden administration, but argued in a piece published the night of the president's disastrous debate against Donald Trump that he should bow out and let another (younger) candidate take his place. Kristof discusses how that would all play out and more. He also talks about his recent trip to the West Bank, Biden's approach to Israel, and his career as a foreign correspondent. This episode was produced by Brandon Reschke and Kathryn Wilkens.
