Vice President Biden portrayed himself as someone who could heal the country’s wounds – while saying President Trump was dividing the country with his racism, “hate,” and “narcisism.”
Rarely has a presidential candidate used such inflammatory rhetoric, all while preaching tolerance and unity. He has to understand that he is also implicating the nearly half of Americans who support the president.
“The president held up the Bible at Stl John’s Church yestesrday. I just wish he opend it once in a while,” Biden said during an appearance in Philadelphia. “I wish I could say that hate began with Donald Trump and will end with him. It didn’t, and it won’t. American history isn’t a fairy tale with a guaranteed happy ending. The battle for the soul of this nation and been a constant push and pull for more than 240 years, a tug of war between teh Americna ideal, and the ahrsh reality that racism has long torn us apart.”
