Biden Claims Trump Is The First Racist President To Be Elected

Speaking during a roundtable discussion with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) on Wednesday, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that Trump has been instrumental in the “spreading of racism, the way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening.”

“No sitting president has ever done this,” Biden said, as reported by Fox News. “Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We’ve had racists and they’ve existed and they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is either ignorant or forgetful of history to say such a thing, considering that President Andrew Johnson (a Democrat) is considered one of the most virulently racist, if not the worst, president to ever hold office.

“Everyone would, and must admit, that the white race was superior to the black, and that while we ought to do our best to bring them . . . up to our present level, that, in doing so, we should, at the same time raise our own intellectual status so that the relative position of the two races would be the same,” Andrew Johnson said to the federal commissioner of the Public Buildings Service, according to Politico.
