President Biden claimed Donald Trump campaigned on the idea black Americans were taking jobs from the white working class, in an interview published Tuesday.
Biden make the comment in an interview with The Atlantic‘s Edward-Isaac Dovere.
“The people who built the country are the people who are all being left behind. When that happens, and you don’t have a counter-voice to ‘The reason you lost your job is because of an immigrant; the reason you lost that job is because those black folks are taking your job’ — it opens up the door to the Charlottesvilles of the world,” Biden said.
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes took Biden to task when former President Trump repeatedly touted his record with black Americans.
“Joe Biden is not just senile. He’s a senile race agitator of the worst kind,” the Todd Starnes Show host said. “This man is not only spewing lies, he’s spewing a steaming pile of Grade-A crapola.”
Trump, at a campaign event in September 2020, spoke about his record with African-Americans, Breitbart reports.
“In the first three years, we achieved the lowest black unemployment rate in history,” Trump said. “The black youth unemployment rate reached an all time low. We achieved the largest job gains for African-Americans on record. Black Americans saw the largest increase in home ownership. The poverty rate for African-Americans reached the lowest level ever recorded.”
