    President Joe Biden has a looming decision over whether to seek reelection in 2024 as scrutiny over his age and ability to lead the Democratic Party mounts ahead of the midterm election results. The question has hovered over the final weeks of the midterm elections as Biden warned that democracy is at stake, a campaign theme he has returned to again and again as his party fights to keep control of Congress. In speeches, Biden has attempted to cast the race not as a referendum on his two years in office but as a choice between himself and so-called MAGA forces — a reminder to those wondering about the president’s future how he prevailed against former President Donald Trump in 2020, his once and potential future rival. Biden leveraged the dynamic to win the election in 2020, with a former aide framing in similar terms the prospect of another presidential bid. BIDEN POLLSTER WARNS OF 'PARADIGM SHIFT' AMID GOP GAINS AMONG BLACK AND LATINO VOTERS Biden was “the only person who beat Donald Trump,” former White House press secretary...
    Getty Busquets goes off against Inter. Barcelona suffered a costly draw in the Champions League against Inter that is likely to have far-reaching ramifications for the Catalan giants both on and off the pitch for the rest of the 2022-23 season. The result leaves Xavi’s side facing an early exit from Europe’s top competition for the second season in a row. A win for Inter against the group’s bottom side Viktoria Plzen, who have lost all four group games, will ensure the Nerazzurri take the second qualifying spot  behind Bayern Munich. Barca have been left in a “state of shock” by the result after being convinced they would make it through the group, according to Toni Juanmarti at Relevo. The club also now “hope that certain players see that the moment to step aside cannot wait any longer.” No names are mentioned but there’s no doubt that veterans Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets were guilty of high-profile errors during the match. Pique played Inter onside for the visitors’ equalizer and could only watch helplessly as Nicolo Barella crept...
    VITALI KLITSCHKO warned Anthony Joshua not to 'show weakness' and step aside for Oleksandr Usyk to fight Tyson Fury. Joshua is owed an immediate rematch following defeat to Usyk in September, which Klitschko watched from ringside in London. 3Vitali Klitschko warned Anthony Joshua not to 'show weakness' and step asideCredit: AFP 3Anthony Joshua, Eddie Hearn and Oleksandr UsykCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun But Middle Eastern backers were fronting talks and mega money for the Ukrainian to instead fight Fury for all the belts. It would mean Joshua and Fury's WBC mandatory challenger Whyte receiving a fee to sit on the sidelines and allow the historic unification. But 50-year-old Klitschko - who cornered brother Wladimir in defeats to AJ and the Gypsy King - advised Joshua against any step-aside deal. He told Sky News: "It is his decision. "But my personal opinion? "If Joshua sidesteps in this moment, when the boxing audience expects a rematch and wants to see Joshua versus Usyk, it would show weakness. "Joshua, don't do that please. As fighters, we...
    TYSON FURY and Dillian Whyte have until 6pm TODAY to agree a deal before purse bids are called by the WBC. Whyte has been mandated for Fury's famous green and gold heavyweight belt, but their opposing team have failed so far to reach an agreement. 3Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have until 6pm TODAY to agree a deal before purse bids are calledCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Dillian Whyte is mandated to fight Tyson FuryCredit: Getty Without a deal, the title fight will go to purse bids, which means whoever offers the highest amount will win the right to stage the bout. So far, the WBC have delayed the purse bids three times following a request from representatives of both Fury and Whyte. But as it stands, without a deal by this evening, it will go to purse bids where Fury's US and UK promoters Bob Arum and Frank Warren will auction against Eddie Hearn. After Whyte, 33, was officially ordered into his long-awaited world title shot, the WBC announced he would only receive a 20 per cent share of any...

Joshua, 32, has triggered his clause for a rematch with  Usyk, 35, for the WBA, IBF and WBO belts he lost to the Ukrainian in September.

Joshua was beaten by Usyk in September and had the right to an immediate rematch in his contract. 2Anthony Joshua and promoter Eddie HearnCredit: PA:Press Association But Tyson Fury fancied fighting AJ's Ukrainian rival instead for all the heavyweight marbles in an undisputed title fight. Joshua and Hearn were at least open to considering a deal, but now the WBC has ordered Fury to fight Whyte. It looks to end any hopes of a unification and all-but guarantees AJ will rematch Usyk next year. Promoter Hearn told Betfred: “No he’s not. He’s not been involved in any conversations. "I’ve been involved in a few conversations with a couple of people who’ve discussed a concept where AJ has a comeback fight, Fury and Usyk fight and then AJ fights the winner. "But we forgot the Dillian Whyte part of that jigsaw. Now the Fury versus Whyte fight has been ordered then that concept has evaporated, which is good as...

    BELFAST (Reuters) - Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Michelle O'Neill rejected calls on Thursday by her partner in government, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), to stand down temporarily for allegedly undermining COVID-19 restrictions. The DUP, which jointly leads the region's devolved power-sharing executive with Sinn Fein, called for O'Neill to step aide pending a probe into her attendance at the funeral of a party member that attracted large crowds on Tuesday. "Michelle will not be standing aside temporarily, or standing down," a Sinn Fein spokesman told Reuters. O'Neill said on Monday that she was very satisfied her actions were in line with public health advice.

    Sean Rayford/Getty Images Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s withdrawal from consideration and endorsement of an unspecified woman of color as former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate sparked a major uproar in the presidential race, and led many to wonder where that leaves Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. On Thursday, Sen. Klobuchar announced she was withdrawing from consideration in what many saw as a direct broadside at Warren, who is the only white candidate left on Biden’s ever-shortening shortlist. Klobuchar told MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell “I truly believe, as I actually told the vice president last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.” On social media, there was a lot of triumphalism from opponents of Warren and angst from supporters, but my analysis is that all Klobuchar did was to grease the skids for what was going to happen anyway. But Politico Mag editor Bill Scher posed an interesting and inevitable hypothetical upon hearing the news. After observing that Klobuchar’s announcement effectively “took Warren out,” he wrote “Next interview Warren does,...
