Biden Attacks Trump with KKK Comparison After Shootings in Texas and Ohio

Former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden attacked President Trump by invoking the KKK in an interview about the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

On CNN, Biden said the country had previously dealt with white supremacy in the 1920’s.

The Daily Mail reports:

We went through this before in the ’20s with the Ku Klux Klan,’ he said, ‘50,000 people walking down Pennsylvania Avenue in pointed hats and robes because they in fact decided they didn’t want any Catholics coming into the country.’

Biden focused on the Texas shootings where the suspected gunman expressed white supremacist and racist views about immigrants in a manifesto.

During the interview, CNN host Anderson Cooper asked a leading question about the president’s tone in generating a violent reaction by providing white supremacists “a dog whistle.”

Biden responded, “They do have a dog whistle. They do have a dog whistle.”

On Twitter, Biden echoed the same sentiment about President Trump.

Beto O’Rourke, another 2020 presidential candidate, made similar comments following the Texas shooting.

O’Rourke blamed President Trump for the mass shootings.

Biden also called for an assault weapons ban during the CNN interview and repeated the same view on Twitter.

Biden and O’Rourke are exploiting a national tragedy to boost their presidential campaigns.
