PHILADELPHIA, PENNNSYLVANIA: President Joe Biden reiterated his criticisms of Donald Trump, condemning the former president for labeling the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol as 'patriots' and suggesting he would pardon them.

"Let me ask you: What do you think he would have done on Jan. 6 if Black Americans had stormed it? Think about this. What do you think would've happened if Black Americans had stormed the Capitol? I don't think he'd be talking about pardons," Biden reiterated his earlier statements from Detroit this month.

Joe Biden condemns Donald Trump for being contrary to American values

Biden brought up Trump's involvement in the Central Park Five case during the rally and his campaign released an advertisement highlighting it.

"The same guy who still calls the Central Park Five 'guilty,' even though they were exonerated," Biden criticized Trump, referencing the group of men wrongfully convicted of the 1989 assault of a jogger in Central Park, according to ABC News.

Biden criticized Trump for not saying "Black Lives Matter" and for using terms reminiscent of "Neo-Nazi Third Reich" rhetoric, referring to a social media video from Trump's account that mentioned a "unified Reich."



 

After backlash for its similarity to Nazi Germany's language, Trump deleted the post. His campaign stated it was not an official video but a random one shared by a staffer who overlooked the phrase.

Additionally, Biden condemned Trump on Wednesday, May 29, for being contrary to American values.

Biden said to cheers, "And I'll be damned if I'm going to let Donald Trump be the reason we stop being Americans."

He added, "I'll be damned if I'm going to let Donald Trump -- we're not going to let Donald Trump turn America into a place that doesn't believe in honesty, decency and treating people with respect. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let Donald Trump turn America into a place filled with anger and resentment and hate."

Biden campaign plans to extend outreach to the Black community

Black Voters for Biden-Harris, the Biden campaign's nationwide outreach initiative to reach Black voters, officially launched with the rally.

The campaign said it "believes that Black voters deserve to hear from Team Biden-Harris, and they deserve to have their vote earned, not assumed."

Following the Philadelphia rally, Biden attended an organizing event at a local Black-owned business in collaboration with the Black Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, there was a phone banking event that featured Representative Barbara Lee.

The campaign has announced that its outreach to the Black community will extend into the weekend, with activities planned in key battleground states.

These include engaging with Black churches in Arizona, hosting events at barber shops and hair salons in Michigan, and organizing a block party-style event in Nevada.

Throughout the summer, the campaign plans to work alongside civic organizations to conduct voter education and registration drives.

These initiatives come on the heels of Biden's extensive efforts last week to connect with Black voters.

His activities included attending a Detroit NAACP dinner, announcing grants aimed at further desegregating magnet schools in honor of the Brown v Board case anniversary, initiating steps to reschedule marijuana, and giving the commencement speech at Morehouse College.

Internet urges voters to not to 'fall for' Biden's words

After the news went viral on Facebook, users started sharing their opinions. One said about Biden, "The clown show, do nothing for the american people".

Another user claimed, "It’s not going to work this time."

The third commentator added, "If you have to beg an entire race to vote for you, then you are doing EVERYTHING WRONG."

People also urged voters, "Don’t fall for it." One person suggested Biden to "step down and take care of your health!"

"Don't fall for their brainwashing techniques. Once they get their votes, they kick you to the curb," the fifth user commentated.
