Biden Has Testy Exchange Over Black Support

25 Mai, 2020, 19:50 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

A Fox News poll showing Democratic contender Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump by 8 points heading into the November election ignited fury in the notoriously tetchy incumbent against his favorite TV channel on which he bestows inordinate amount of time and attention. "I shouldn't have been so cavalier".

Biden has emphasized his relationship with black voters, noting throughout the campaign his dependence on black voters in his Delaware Senate races and his partnership as President Barack Obama's top lieutenant.

Biden has committed to selecting a woman to be his vice president, sparking a fierce audition process with some female lawmakers flat-out lobbying for the job.

Charlamagne invited Biden back to the show, saying he had more questions ahead of the election. At a time the United States is passing through an unprecedented health crisis and economic distress, Trump shot off almost a dozen tweets and retweets on polls and polling accusing Fox News, a channel that is for the most part cravenly devoted to him, of "doing nothing to help Republicans, and me get re-elected". The host told Biden that black voters "saved your political life in the primaries" and "have things they want from you".

Biden called his record on racial issues "second to none". He also blasted four Democratic congresswomen of color, saying they hate America and should "go back" to where they come from, even though all are USA citizens and three were born in the U.S.

"I was struck by the condescension and the arrogance in his comments", Scott said in a conference call arranged by the Trump campaign.

Biden adviser Symone Sanders said in a tweet that the remarks were made in jest. "He was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump's any day".

The poll comes as Trump's approval rating has dropped amid his handling of the coronavirus, which surveys demonstrate is looked at poorly by most Americans.

Adrianne Shropshire, executive director of BlackPAC, a national organization that works to mobilize black voters, said many black Americans are loyal Biden supporters.

According to the CBS News report, several other potential women running mates are also being considered, including New Hampshire Sen. Other prominent black women mentioned include Georgia voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Florida Rep. Val Demings, Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge and Susan Rice, Obama's former US ambassador to the United Nations.
