Biden raises bogus claim that Trump supporters are racists
Joe Biden asserted at a Florida fundraiser that a primary reason voters support President Trump is that he is a "racist."Trump is not a racist nor ar his supporters. This is just a typical Democrat attempt to scare black voters into supporting their failing agenda. It is typical of the bad faith attacks they make on their opponents.
Americans who support Trump, the former vice president said on Monday, “like him because of the issues. They like him because of the tax cut, they like him because he’s a racist — whatever the reason is, they like him.”
During the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton drew criticism for calling "half" of Trump's supporters a "basket of deplorables." She also said many of Trump's backers were “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
Biden added that although many of the president's supporters are motivated by prejudice, there "are still a lot of people out there who are afraid" and even backed Barack Obama at one point.
“And they tend to be people who work working-class jobs. We talk about them as if they must all be racist. But these same folks voted for a black guy and an Irishman," Biden said to the crowd of roughly 80 supporters, before knocking former presidential candidate Clinton for failing to "pay attention" to these voters in the 2016 election.
