President Biden is not backing calls for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to step down, the White House said, as the embattled New York governor faces new calls from the state’s Democratic congressional delegation to resign.

More than a dozen New York lawmakers have called for Cuomo to resign, including Reps. Jerry Nadler and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Asked where Biden stands, press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday said the president is not planning to weigh in.

“We, of course, have watched the news of a number of lawmakers call for [Cuomo’s resignation], but I don’t have any additional announcements from here on this,” she said.

Cuomo, a Democratic ally who was reportedly considered for a high-level role in the administration, is embroiled in separate scandals involving allegations of sexual misconduct and an alleged cover-up over nursing home deaths from COVID-19.

Six women have come forward detailing harassment charges by the governor.

“The president believes that every woman who has come forward … deserves to have her voice heard, should be treated with respect, and should be able to tell her story,” Psaki continued. “There also is an independent investigation that is ongoing in the state with subpoena power overseen by the attorney general, and he certainly supports that moving forward.”

Cuomo is also facing legal scrutiny over his handling of New York’s COVID-19 response, including charges that his office altered the recorded number of deaths in nursing homes.

Asked whether the Democratic president still has faith in Cuomo’s leadership, Psaki suggested the governor’s state could be adversely hurt by his removal.

“We certainly don’t want anyone in the state of New York to be penalized, meaning not have access to vaccines, to vaccinators, not have access to funding from the rescue plan,” she said. “The president and our COVID response team work with governors across the country, including Gov. Cuomo, to implement these plans and will continue to do that.”

The White House has worked closely with Cuomo and his top aide, Melissa DeRosa, since before taking office, when she began advising White House counselor and longtime Biden confidant Steve Ricchetti on a coronavirus response plan.

Former White House doctor opens up on Biden’s ’embarrassing struggle’ through press conference

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) said Biden muddled through his first press conference as president with the help of his “biggest fans,” the White House press corps.

After President Joe Biden’s difficult press conference Thursday following his stumbles up the stairs of Air Force One just days earlier, concerns over the new president’s health continue to loom large among Americans, including former White House physician Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who called Biden’s recent struggles a “major red flag.”

Jackson served as White House physician under former presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He won election to the House in 2020 and now represents the 13th District of Texas. Following Biden’s shaky press conference reliant on “cheat-sheet” notes, the physician took to social media to share his view of Biden’s declining health.

“This ‘Press Brief’ was EMBARRASSING! Not only for Biden, but for the liberal press corps as well,” Jackson wrote on Twitter

. “He struggled to make it through, despite the fact that he followed a strict order of reporters to call on and was reading what appeared to be prepared answers from the podium.”

Earlier this week, Jackson spoke as a former White House physician about the individual health preconditions necessary to serve successfully as president.

“I’ve seen what it takes physically AND mentally to do the job,” he tweeted. “I can tell you right now that the way Biden is hiding from the public is a MAJOR red flag. Something’s not right!”

Jackson asserted that the press seem to be Biden’s “biggest fans” as reporters refrained from asking the president about tough topics such as China’s accountability for the virus and the criminal investigations into his son Hunter.

White House Confirms Biden Will Sign Executive Order on Gun Control

President Joe Biden will sign executive orders on gun control in the near future, confirmed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday.

When asked about the prospect of taking executive action, Psaki responded with, “Yes.”

“I can’t give you an exact time frame, in part, because they have to go through a review process, which is something that we do from here,” Psaki told reporters at the White House.

“I will note that when we, when the president was the vice president in the Obama-Biden administration, he helped put in place 23 executive actions to combat gun violence,” she added. “It’s one of the levers that we can use that any federal government, any president, can use to help address the prevalence of gun violence and address community safety around the country.”

On Thursday, during the president’s first news conference, he hinted at taking action but pivoted to his infrastructure agenda items.

Earlier this week, Vice President Kamala Harris indicated that Congress should pass gun control legislation but stopped short of saying Biden would issue an executive order.

“It is time for Congress to act,” the vice president said in an interview with CBS News on Wednesday. “It’s simply about saying we need reasonable gun safety laws. There is no reason why we have assault weapons on the streets of a civil society. They are weapons of war. They are designed to kill a lot of people quickly,” she added.

But gun rights organizations such as the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners for America have raised red flags about Biden’s proposals, arguing they would violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment.

“In an apocalyptic environment where the filibuster has been eradicated, you can expect to see a Democrat Congress ramming through gun bans, gun owner registration, and more,” Gun Owners for America said days after Biden’s inauguration.

Meanwhile, it’s possible that courts could overturn any potential executive rule. This week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit ruled that a federal ban on bump stocks handed down by the ATF is likely illegal, while ordering that the ban be placed on hold.
