The former staffer who accused Joe Biden of sexual assault has called for him to drop out of the presidential race. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Tara Reade claimed Biden has not afforded her the presumption that she’s telling the truth.
The presumptive Democrat nominee has denied that he sexually assaulted her in 1993.
When asked what she would say to the former vice president if he watches the interview, Reade said he should drop out of the presidential race.
“You and I were there, Joe Biden, please step forward and be held accountable,” stated Reade. “You should not be running on character for president of the United States.”

She also noted she’s received death threats since she came forward with her allegations.
Biden’s supporters have been quick to dismiss her claims. The former vice president has yet to respond to Reade’s interview.
