( – West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D) expressed hesitation on Friday about fully supporting President Biden in the upcoming election, citing concerns over the administration’s shift to the left. During an interview with MSNBC’s Katy Tur, Manchin reminisced about the Biden he knew, who was keen on forging deals and uniting people, aligning with his 2020 campaign promises.

“I think his staff is pushing him too far to the left,” Manchin remarked. “That’s not where he belongs. That’s not who he is at his core, and I would love to see him return to that form.”

When Tur questioned whether Manchin is waiting for Biden to distance himself from the left wing to secure his endorsement, Manchin shifted the conversation to current national issues, including the situation at the southern border.

“I’m pleading with him to address the border crisis more assertively, perhaps even by declaring a national emergency, as it’s a matter of national concern,” Manchin stated.

Despite his criticisms of Biden’s current direction, Manchin was clear about his inability to support former President Trump, citing a fundamental concern for his country. However, when pressed on whether he might abstain from endorsing any candidate in November, he insisted that staying out of the electoral process is not an option for him.

“We’ll have to see how things unfold,” Manchin said, leaving the door open to various possibilities.

His comments echoed a similar stance he took in February, when he stated he was not ready to endorse anyone at that time.

“I’m not endorsing anybody right now,” Manchin had said, adding, “We’ve still got plenty of time. I’m going to do everything I can to help steer them back towards the center, to demonstrate where this country’s strength and its voting bloc truly lie.”
