USA divisions due to 10pc who are 'not good people' says Biden

"Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don't think the vast majority of people think that", Biden said in an online event titled, "The Shade Room" moderated by actor Don Cheadle.

A candidate needs at least 1,991 delegates to secure the nomination. "And Donald Trump's angry, divisive politics is no answer".

Past nominees have stoked controversy with blanket descriptions of people.

Others compared the moment to Hillary Clinton's infamous "basket of deplorables" gaffe from the 2016 presidential election when the former presidential nominee was referring to Trump supporters, a comment many saw as incredibly damaging to her appeal to right-leaning voters. "The initial reaction to ongoing racial unrest in the country suggests that most voters feel Trump is not handling the situation all that well".

Throughout the conversation, Mr. Biden acknowledged that he hasn't experienced racism but that childhood bullies making fun of his stutter taught him about being humiliated. It's time for him to step out of his own bunker.

The XM4's will offer multipoint connections , meaning they can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at one time. The WH-1000XM4 looks exactly what people want in a successor to Sony's current flagship ANC headphones.

Mr Biden said that as a white man, he can not fully understand what it is like to be a black man facing danger in encounters with law enforcement.

While he's not likely to win over conservative votes with his comments, liberals have remained loyal and expressed their support for Biden's assertion that tens of millions of Americans are not "very good people," with some even saying the estimate is "low" and pointing to recent videos of police brutality across the nation as evidence.

"Instead of working to heal the raw wound of systemic racism and injustice ripped open once more by the murder of George Floyd, Trump has fomented hate and division", said Andrew Bates, Biden campaign spokesman, to CNBC. "The history of our country is not a fairy tale, it doesn't guarantee a happy ending, but as I said earlier, we're in a battle for the soul of this nation. It's been a constant push and pull for the last 200 years".

Biden, during his time in the Senate, voted for the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act that was later signed into law by then-President Bill Clinton.

In reforms made by the Democratic Party as a result of the friction in the 2016 primaries, superdelegates - party officials and Democratic governors, senators, and House members - were stripped of their ability to back a presidential candidate in the first round of convention balloting. "I did Criminal Justice Reform, something [former President Barack] Obama & Biden didn't even try to do - & couldn't do even if they did try". "So there's going to be a lot of folks that are going to want to cause trouble. It's going to take young leaders like you to change things in the city".
