Clarification: An earlier version of the story stated that portions of the interview would air on Good Morning America. GMA is not airing the interview.

President Joe Biden's first television interview since the presidential debate will air on ABC on Friday, as calls for him to step down as Democratic presidential candidate grow louder.

According to a USA Today article, Biden told his campaign team on Wednesday that he would be the Democratic nominee.

“The last few days have been tough. I'm sure you're getting a lot of calls, and I'm sure many of you have questions too,” Biden told the campaign team, according to a source familiar with the conversation. “Let me say this as clearly and simply as possible: I'm running.”

Biden is interviewed by “This Week” and “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos.

Biden has come under fire recently and is under pressure from Democrats following his disastrous debate performance against former President Donald Trump. His team had previously attributed his scratchy voice to a cold, but on Tuesday he blamed his poor performance on stage on jet lag from his recent foreign travels.

On Monday, Biden delivered a special evening address from the White House Cross Hall to address the Supreme Court's decision to grant former President Donald Trump broad immunity from prosecution. He did not respond to reporter's questions after his address.
