Trump capitalizes on Biden’s “You ain’t black” remark


“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you aint black,” said former Vice President Joe Biden (D) during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the Breakfast ClubSince then, the presidential candidate has apologized for his remarks, which many saw as racist.

While speaking in a conference call with African American business leaders, the former Vice President commented that he “should not have been so cavalier,” adding that he’s “never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted.” Biden then clarified that “no one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background.”

However, Republican African American lawmakers and supporters have slammed Biden for his words, and the Trump administration has responded by releasing merchandise that celebrates the African American voices that support the president in his reelection bid. As well, the Trump campaign has released an advertisement criticizing Biden for his choice of words, dubbing Vice President Biden a racist.
