Joe Biden criticized President Donald Trump on Tuesday for fanning “the flames of hate,” and called on Congress not to wait until a new president is elected to address systemic racism and police brutality as protests continue to sweep the nation.

Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, decried Trump’s leadership of a country beset by three crises – the coronavirus pandemic, the recession and protests over racial inequities that have often turned violent.

“The country is crying out for leadership,” Biden said in his speech from Philadelphia City Hall. “Leadership that can unite us. Leadership that can bring us together. Leadership that can recognize the pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for too long.”

Biden said there should be “no more excuses, no delays” in addressing the racial inequalities underlying the protests convulsing the nation. He said Congress should pass a ban on police chokeholds, prevent military surplus equipment from flowing to police departments and improve oversight. If elected, he said, he would set up a national police oversight commission in his first 100 days.

But the former vice president acknowledged that change would take time, and he refused to promise that he could get it done in the traditional campaign yardstick of 100 days or even a full presidential term.

  1. You must remember. Joe is a fighter. He will unite this Country. He will heal all racial indifferences. He will end this Coronavirus on Day One. He will implement reparations on Day Two. He will put all Republican white heterosexual males into re-education camps on Day Three. I know this first hand. I fought alongside him in Vietnam. I’m getting all excited. I can’t wait till Joe takes over.

  2. I am appalled that anyone would vote for this guy. Yesterday, I smashed a bug crawling across my kitchen floor. In its splattered state, it had more intellect than this fool on the campaign trail. There is nothing he can or will do. The only thing that is needed is lethal force that stops the thugs in their tracks. A few dead looters, and the nonsense will stop. Send in the military, and lock up the mayors and governors who try to stop them.

    • Nobody voted for THIS guy because he’s not around anymore. They voted for his double who’s not currently pictured above. He’s part of the show and will officially drop out of the race soon.

  3. The speech was the best speech by any Presidential candidate in a long time. The contrast to Trump’s photo-op in front of an illegally seized church was striking. Joe Biden will lead America back to the greatness we once had before Trump destroyed it.
