President Trump’s 2020 campaign has quickly created a new website as part of efforts to capitalize on a controversy that has engulfed Democratic rival Joe Biden — after the former vice president said that black Americans who have a hard time “figuring out” whether to support him or Trump “ain’t black.”
Biden made the remarks in an interview Friday morning with “The Breakfast Club,” a nationally broadcast morning talk show popular with black listeners. After host Charlamagne tha God said he had “more questions” for him before November, Biden defended his record with on issues affecting black Americans.
“I tell you, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” he said.
Biden walked back the remarks the same day, later saying: “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”
“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy,” Biden said. “… No one should have to vote for any party, based on their race or religion or background.”
But the remarks drew swift criticism from across the political spectrum, in particular from the Trump campaign — which sought to highlight the remarks.
