Biden Say ’10 to 15 Percent’ Of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People’ During Talk About Race Relations In America

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

On Friday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden was asked about race relations in America and about the ongoing protests since George Floyd’s tragic death in Minneapolis.

During the interview with actor Don Cheadle, Biden said the onus was on President Trump to unite the country and to pitch a plan to bring people together—and claimed that he was not.

“Look if elected my view is that you will have to address these issues straight on. The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re gonna the worst of us to come out,” Biden said per Fox News.

“So when a president constantly talks about equality without lecturing and has an administration that looks like the country then it changes attitudes [for the better],” he continued. “And it’s about the attitude of the country.”

Then Biden, as a presidential candidate and presumptive Democratic nominee, had his own moment to call for unity but he did not.

Instead, Biden ostracized 32,000,000 to 48,000,000 Americans.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” Biden continued. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

Out: Hillary Clinton’s “Basket of Deplorables.”

In: Joe Biden’s “Not very good people.”

Fox News adds:

The remarks harken back to the controversial comments made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election when, at a campaign event, she estimated that “half” of Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables.”

While Biden received praise earlier this week for his address following the May 25 death of Minneapolis man George Floyd while in police custody, the presumptive Democratic nominee previously landed himself in hot water during a recent interview on “The Breakfast Club.” During the show, he told radio host Charlamagne tha God “you ain’t black” if any black voter is still undecided between supporting him or President Trump. He later walked those comments back, saying he shouldn’t have sounded so “cavalier” and acted like a “wise guy.”
