Former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic primary frontrunner, made another gaffe Thursday when he told a crowd in Iowa that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.”
Quickly realizing his mistake, the former vice president added ‘and wealthy kids. Black kids. Asian kids.’
But his remarks at the Asian and Latino Coalition event in Des Moines were seized on by Donald Trump’s campaign as ‘part of a pattern’ from Biden.
The president himself even weighed in, telling reporters Friday morning: ‘I saw his comment. Joe Biden is not playing with a full deck. This is not somebody you can have as your president. But if he got the nomination, I would be thrilled.’
