President Donald Trump ripped into his presumptive Democratic rival, Joe Biden, in an “all caps” tweet Sunday over the latter’s racist “you ain’t black” comment during a Friday interview, an assertion that African-American voters aren’t true to their ethnicity if they don’t vote for him in November.
“I HOPE ALL AFRICAN AMERICANS WILL READ AND STUDY THIS. 100% CORRECT. SLEEPY JOE WILL NEVER GET YOU THERE. HE NEVER HAS IN THE PAST. I WILL & HAVE!!!” the president wrote.
Trump was reacting to a tweet by Ken Farnaso, a Deputy Press Secretary on his campaign.
“Under President Trump’s Administration: criminal justice reform, historic HBCU funding, Opportunity Zones, lowest black unemployment rate in American history,” Farnaso wrote. “Under Joe? Mass incarceration, the crime bill, war on drugs.”
In addition, Trump shared a tweet from former NFL great Herschel Walker, who also blasted Biden.
“Wow. I just watched former Vice President Joe Biden… Does he not understand that black and brown-skinned people can think for themselves. You don’t determine who we vote for,” Walker wrote.
In addition, the president shared a video featuring Trump campaign senior advisor Katrina Pierson and other black Trump supporters reacting to Biden’s astonishing statement.

Others blasted Biden as well.
This morning, Joe Biden said “If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
