Biden: 10-15% of Americans are 'not very good people'
The candidate is often criticized for his gaffe-prone nature
Presumed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says that 10-15% of Americans are "not very good people."
Biden made the comment late Thursday during an online campaign event that he was having with black supporters, moderated by actor Don Cheadle. The conversation centered on race relations in America in the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody on Memorial Day.
The former vice president was explaining his belief that President Trump has been a divisive leader and that while "the vast majority" of Americans are honorable people, "there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15% of the people out there that are just not very good people."
Biden has been criticized for his tendency to make gaffes during public appearances. This comment, in particular, is reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's widely panned statement on half of Trump supporters being a "basket of deplorables," whose ideas and actions were "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic"
