Reed Hastings, a top Democrat donor who founded the streaming platform Netflix in 1997, has issued a statement calling on President Joe Biden to step down from his position as President of the United States.

The criticism from Hastings is just another instance of top Democrat donors and officials’ sentiment following Biden’s overall poor performance in last week’s CNN Presidential debate against former President Donald Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement claiming that there is ‘legitimacy’ to the calls within the Democrat Party for President Biden to step down. Those remarks were reportedly devastating to President Biden, who has allegedly been convinced to remain in the White House by his immediate family, namely First Lady Jill Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Reports surfaced this week that Hunter Biden has even started attending meeting with President Joe Biden to the dismay of the staff at the White House.

The brain behind Netflix cited that Biden must step away from the White House in order to ensure that the Democrat Party can beat Donald Trump in the 2024 Election. Hastings obviously has doubts that Biden is capable of defeating the former President.

Hastings made this claim in a statement that was leaked to the New York Times, writing in the leaked message,

“Biden needs to step aside to allow a vigorous Democratic leader to beat Trump and keep us safe and prosperous,”

Hastings has given over $832k to Biden’s Presidential campaigns since March of 2020. In June of 2023, the Netflix founder forked over $100,000 to the Biden Victory Fund for the President’s re-election campaign.

Hastings is amongst the largest donors and supporters of California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is rumored to be interested in joining a Presidential ticket in some capacity should a vacancy occur.

The Netflix mastermind reportedly donated over $3,000,000 to efforts attempting to stop the 2021 recall of California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Among those rumored to be interested in replacing Biden include Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and Vice President Kamala Harris. A dark horse candidate Michelle Obama has quickly become the most popular choice for Democrat voters should Biden not be able to run.

The former First Lady has answered by declaring she is not interested in running for office, and has instead launched a fundraising effort for Vice President Kamala Harris.

The New York Post has reported that Michelle Obama is purposely not campaigning with President Joe Biden because of the treatment of Hunter Biden’s ex-wife.
