OREANDA-NEWS. The most likely candidate from the Democratic Party for the upcoming presidential election in the United States, Joe Biden, called incumbent head of state, Donald Trump, the first racist who ever led the country.

The Washington Post reports that during an online meeting with voters, Biden agreed with a participant who expressed concern that Trump is trying to blame China for the emergence and spread of coronavirus infection and calls SARS-CoV-2 the “China virus.” The politician added that Trump “deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from,” and it is “absolutely sickening.” “No sitting president has ever done this,” Biden said. According to him, now the actions of the head of the White House divide the country.

Journalists asked Trump to comment on the statement of his potential rival. In response, the President claimed that he have done “more for Black Americans than anybody with the possible of exception of Abraham Lincoln.”
