Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday compared the cultural ripple effect of President Donald Trump’s election to the assassinations of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert Kennedy (D-N.Y.) in the 1960s.
Speaking with MSNBC host Al Sharpton during the South Carolina Democratic Convention about criminal justice reform, Biden claimed that Trump’s election ignited a cultural awakening that will shift the tides of public policy just like the assassinations of King and Kennedy drove change a half-century ago.
“I think what’s happening now is, I think that Donald Trump may have reawakened sensibilities in this country to say ‘Whoa, maybe we can do this now,’ just like our generation was awakened when Dr. King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated,” Biden said. “Our whole generation said, ‘I’m back in, man.’”
“These millennials — they get it, Rev., and now they want to get engaged,” he added.
Although Biden remains the clear frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, his gaffe-prone nature has already reared its head early into his campaign.
Biden has particularly been criticized for his history of praising segregationist lawmakers, a habit the former vice president maintained over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the New York Post published an unsavory report on Democratic Party sentiment toward Biden’s campaign over the weekend, proving, among other things, that the Democratic Party is very nervous about Biden’s chances against Trump in what will prove to be a very difficult election.
