"ain't black."“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” he said.After the remarks were blasted across the political spectrum, Biden walked them back, saying in an afternoon phone call with the U.S. Black Chambers that “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

أنا_ضد_قانون_سيزر I'd take sleepy Joe over sleazy Don anytime of day Nothing you can do Trump 2020 Dementia Joe just wish they would endorse him lol Hey realDonaldTrump what are you doing today as we approach 100,000 dead from Covid? Trump: I’m playing golf today. A president celebrates as Americans die..many of the deaths could have avoided with action instead of his in-action.

He deserves it. He thinks he is entitled to their votes. Sound familiar? Do you think the DEMS will nominate Biden as their presidential candidate? Who else do they have to replace him? I dont get it...Joe needs your support, while he leads from behind and shelters in his mansion basement, giving edicts of advice, while you are ignoring his wishes and trying to survive...the illumination of knowlege can be enlightening..

I am not voting for either og them but independent since all of this. I think this is Trumps news channel so coming from a racist man who really is racist. It is a attempt to make Biden seems racist.
