Biden: I Wish I Could Say that Hate Began with Donald Trump and Will End with Him

‘It didn’t and it won’t’


BIDEN: "You know, the American story is a story about action and reaction. That’s how history works. We can’t be naive about it. I wish I could say that hate began with Donald Trump and will end with him. It didn’t and it won’t. American history isn’t a fairy tale with a guaranteed happy ending. The battle for the soul of this nation has been a constant push and pull for more than 240 years. A tug-of-war between the American ideal that we’re all created equal and the harsh reality that racism has long torn us apart. The honest truth is that both elements are part of the American character.”
