Joe Biden likens Trump to a white segregationist

Joe Biden, a former vice president and Democratic nominee for the 2020 election, on Friday compared Donald Trump to the late white segregationist George Wallace, after the US president's comments on colored Democrats. Wallace, known for his supremacist views, was Governor of Alabama for 20 years, from 1967 to 1987. He had run for the Democratic nomination but his efforts to be the official candidate had been shattered by the attack he had been victim in 1972, and to whom he had survived.

Campaigning in California, Joe Biden said Trump was “more of George Wallace than George Washington.” Trump raised an uproar and was accused of racism by some after picking on four elected Democrats in the House of Representatives, all of color.

In a tweet, Trump wrote last weekend that “They'd better get back to the countries they come from and help rebuild them and clean them from the crime they're plagued with.” Her critics are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. Ocasio-Cortez, Pressley and Tlaib are all born in the United States. Omar, a Somali refugee, has been living in the United States for more than 20 years and is a US citizen.
