Out of the house: Democrat Biden makes first campaign stop in weeks

Out of the house: Democrat Biden makes first campaign stop in weeks

The likely Democratic nominee's remarks to The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne tha God in an interview broadcast on Friday drew a swift rebuke from the Trump campaign and Republican supporters, as well as some black Democrats on Twitter. "I've never ever done that and I've earned it every time I've run", he said. "I shouldn't have been so cavalier".

Omar previously endorsed Bernie Sanders for United States president, Biden's rival from the so-called progressive wing of the Democratic party, who dropped out of the race in early April and endorsed Biden's bid for the presidency.

During the radio interview, recorded on Thursday, the popular host had challenged Biden over his long history on race issues. The former vice president has remained inside his DE home in the weeks since the virus forced his campaign to cancel a rally on March 10 in Cleveland, according to the Associated Press.

Biden and his wife, Jill, both wore black face masks in their first outdoor appearances during the coronavirus pandemic.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is reportedly reaching back into her old toolbox in an attempt to help former Vice President Joe Biden. "It's a long way until November, we got more questions", he said, to which the former VP replied: "You got more questions, but I tell ya, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black".

Biden called his record on racial issues "second to none".

"It has to come to the point where we stop putting the burden on black voters to show up for Democrats and start putting the burden on Democrats to show up for black voters", he said.

Nevertheless, Biden's allies say the lockdown has deprived him of chances to showcase what they see as his major strength: his empathetic personality and ability to comfort people in times of loss.

Trumps re-election committee, along with the Make America Great Again Committee, have purchased roughly $21 million for ads during the same time frame.
