Biden: Trump Fanning ‘the Flames of White Supremacy’
At a campaign event in Burlington, Iowa Wednesday, White House contender Joe Biden accused President Trump of fanning “the flames of white supremacy.”
Noting that “the words of a president matters [sic],” Biden said “They can encourage us to appeal to our better angels, to our better nature, but they can also unleash the deepest, darkest forces in this nation. And that’s what I believe Donald Trump has chosen to do. When he said after Charlottesville there were, and I quote, ‘very fine people on both sides,’ I said then it gave license and safe harbor to white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.”
This is one of the biggest Democrat lies of the Trump era: that Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people.” Biden has been milking this for his entire campaign.
“In both clear language, and in code, this president has fanned the flames of white supremacy,” Biden continued to lie. “His mouthing of the words written for him condemning white supremacists this week, I don’t believe fooled anyone at home or abroad.” Actually, it’s Biden who is fooling no one.
