'He's a racist': Biden slams Trump for generating 'racist division''

Telegraph, 30 Sep 2020
As racial tensions remain high in the US, Biden took aim at Donald Trump, describing him as "a president who has used everything as a dog whistle to try to generate racist hatred, racist division".

Both Trump and Biden attempted to win over black voters, with both sides launching attacks on each other's past actions.

Biden mockingly questioned: "This man, this man is a savior of African Americans? This man has done virtually nothing."

Biden says that 1 in 1,000 African Americans has died because of the coronavirus, and if Trump doesn't do something quickly, it will be 1 in 500.

Trump turned the discussion from COVID-19 to a crime bill passed in 1994 that Biden helped write and get passed that, among other things, increased the penalties for certain drug offenses.

Trump says "I'm letting people out of jail now," and asserted that Biden had treated the Black community "about as bad as anybody in this country."
