Former Vice-President of the USA Joe Biden said he regretted his words to the radio host Leonard McKelvey, aka Charlamagne Tha God, that he may not call himself black if he supports US President Donald trump. His words, reports The Hill.
In a telephone conversation with the dark-skinned business leaders the most likely candidate from the US Democratic party in the upcoming elections Biden called the comments “arrogant,” adding that he never meant that takes black voters for granted or can tell them who they should support. “I wasn’t supposed to be so smart. I shouldn’t be so arrogant,” Biden said.
The words of the policy has sparked controversy in the popular radio show The Breakfast Club after his leader said he wants to continue the discussion of issues affecting the African-American community, later. “Do you have any more questions?” — said Biden. “Well, I’ll tell you what, if you have a problem with the definition, for me or for you trump, you’re not black”, he added.
Press Secretary Biden Simon Saunders defended the policy, saying the comments were “made in jest” and pointed to strong support for Biden from black voters, which secured him a resounding victory during intra-party elections.
Despite this, Republicans and even some democratic leaders spoke out against these comments, accusing Biden is that he lectures to African Americans on how to think, and puts into question the racial authenticity of black voters.
