Joe Biden claims President Donald Trump is the first America’s racist president
Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate branded Donald Trump as the first racist to become U.S. president.
He made this known as he fielded a question at a Service Employees International Union roundtable from a healthcare worker concerned about the Trump calling the coronavirus pandemic the “China virus”.
Joe Biden, who was vice president under Barack Obama, the first Black U.S. president, said it was sickening how Trump deals with people based on the colour of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from.
Joe Biden said:
“No sitting president’s ever done this. Never, never, never.
“No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president.
“We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed, and they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”
Meanwhile the president camp has quickly rejected the label, as campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson fired back, calling Biden’s comments “an insult to the intelligence of Black voters”
Trump “loves all people” and “works hard to empower all Americans.”
