Joke of the month?
President Trump asserted Wednesday that he has done more during his tenure as president “for our Black population” than former vice president Joe Biden has done over four decades in public service — adding that the only Republican president to have done more was Abraham Lincoln.
Trump’s comments, in morning tweets, came a day after Biden delivered an address in which he promised to secure the nation’s unmet promises to minority Americans, drawing a sustained contrast with Trump as he vowed not to “traffic in fear and division” and “fan the flames of hate.”
Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is increasingly seeking to distinguish himself from Trump by portraying himself as sympathetic to the anger in the streets over the police killing of a Minneapolis man, George Floyd, and generations of other abuses.
“In 3 1/2 years, I’ve done much more for our Black population than Joe Biden has done in 43 years,” Trump tweeted. “Actually, he set them back big time with his Crime Bill, which he doesn’t even remember. I’ve done more for Black Americans, in fact, than any President in U.S. history, with the possible exception of another Republican President, the late, great, Abraham Lincoln…and it’s not even close….
That’s why he has had to hide in his basement, have fencing put up around his one and get the Army and tear gas to walk across the street to a park and hundreds of thousand around America and the world do NOT agree with his statement?
Joe Biden has been going to talk to black folks….
