Joe Biden Walks Back His “You Ain’t Black” Remarks: “I Shouldn’t Have Been So Cavalier”

On Friday, Joe Biden was met with instant backlash after he suggested during a Friday live-stream with radio show host Charlamagne Tha God from “The Breakfast Club”, that if you support President Trump “then you ain’t black.”

Biden later walked back his remarks.

In audio posted by The Hill, Biden said, “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier and responded to what I thought was — I don’t take it for granted at all.”

“And no one, no one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background,” he added.

“There are African Americans who think Trump is worth voting for,” Biden continued. “I don’t think so. I’m prepared to put my record against his.”

“That was the bottom line and it was — it was really unfortunate. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” he concluded. Video Below
