Maggie Haberman: Trump Team is 'Delighted' That Biden Isn't Dropping Out

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman told Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night that Donald Trump and his handlers are very happy that Joe Biden is fighting calls to exit the presidential race. 

Team Trump has all of the momentum right now following the debate with polls showing his numbers rising in every important swing state. While the Biden camp has attempted that ease fears about his campaign with a packed schedule. The results of those efforts still haven't been seen. 

Haberman, who is well-hooked into the Trump campaign, appeared on Anderson Cooper's CNN show last night. The host asked, "Maggie, do you think Donald Trump, I mean, does he want to run against Biden?"

"Yes, I do," the journalist responded. "I think the idea of not having Biden in the race has been of concern to a number of Trump advisers. Whether they would say that or not, I think, as openly is a different issue. I think that they know what a race against Joe Biden looks like or think they do and they felt obviously very good about what happened in the debate."

Haberman continued

"You know, a change in that would they didn’t potentially impact their calculus for what the next four months look like. So, the fact that President Biden is digging in and telling his critics in the Democratic Party that he’s not going anywhere is something that the Trump team is delighting in."
