The Rev. Al Sharpton explained why black voters are sticking with Joe Biden, even after his past record on race has been highlighted and dissected.
Recent polls show Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) failed to dent Biden’s support from black voters, despite calling out his record on busing during last month’s Democratic presidential debate, and Sharpton told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that President Barack Obama’s vice president still had a lot of credibility.
“Donald Trump won playing the race card, but he also played that he was going to undo everything that President Obama did,” Sharpton said. “Well, undoing Obama is undoing Obama-Biden, so a lot of African-Americans are saying, ‘This is my vote to say I am with Obama-Biden and the things that Donald Trump is trying to undo,’ and Biden gets a lot of support because of that.”
“He was the co-pilot of the years that Mr. Trump is now trying to displace,” he added, “so it’s going to take more than one or two bad nights at a debate for people to look at Joe Biden as separate from the last 10 years. They weren’t around 50 years ago for busing. It’s a big issue and an important issue, but they remember in real life their own experiences over the last 10 years that’s trying to be displaced by this president, and Joe Biden was part of that.”
New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
