In a controversial move, the U.S. will supply Ukraine with cluster bombs. And, is President Joe Biden under pressure to step aside? 

As the 2024 U.S. presidential election draws closer, members of his own party are urging Joe Biden to make way for a new, younger generation of Democratic Party candidates. They point to his advanced age and what some say are cognitive issues. But his supporters say Biden should be judged by his achievements, not his age.

Meanwhile, a controversial decision by the Biden administration to send cluster munitions to Ukraine.

The decision has caused divisions domestically and concern among U.S. allies. These munitions release dozens of bomblets which disperse and detonate across several football fields. They’re considered inaccurate, and have been banned by a hundred nations as a risk to civilians.
