Joe Biden officially apologizes for his statements where he said “you ain’t black” if you are torn between voting for him or Trump.
While attending the launch of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement on March 30, 2017, a student asked Biden what “piece of advice” he would give Trump. Biden responded that Trump should grow up and cease his tweeting so he could focus on the office. During a speech at a May 29 gathering of Phil Murphy supporters at a community center gymnasium, Biden said, “There are a lot of people out there who are frightened. Trump played on their fears. What we haven’t done, in my view—and this is a criticism of all us—we haven’t spoken enough to the fears and aspirations of the people we come from.” On June 17, 2017, Biden predicted the “state the nation is today will not be sustained by the American people” while speaking at a Florida Democratic Party fundraiser in Hollywood. Biden told CBS This Morning that Trump’s administration “seems to feel the need to coddle autocrats and dictators” like Saudi Arabian leaders, Russian president Putin, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte. In October 2018, Biden said if Democrats retook the House of Representatives, “I hope they don’t [impeach Trump]. I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now.” On June 11, 2019, Biden criticized Trump’s “damaging” trade war with China. He also criticized Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, which critics say gave Turkey the green light to launch the military offensive against Syrian Kurds.
Joe’s history with Trump is a bit bumpy.
