Trump is offering ‘sick message’: Biden says
U. S. Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday used an event organized to honor Hispanic tradition to criticize Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his "sick message" or remarks about Mexican immigrants.
Hosting a function honoring Hispanic Heritage Month at his residence at the Naval Observatory, Biden accused Trump of denigrating an entire group of people and appealing to the baser side of human nature.
Biden severely criticized the real estate mogul, and urged the crowd not to take Trump and his controversial remarks to heart. He stressed Trump's remarks didn't represent American people's thinking.
Criticizing the real estate mogul's remarks on Mexican immigrants, Biden added, "Folks, the American people are with us. I know it doesn't feel that way. But I'm telling you. I'm telling you. The American people agree with us."
The vice president said sick messages like that of Trump had been tried on Americans many times before, but people always successfully overcame. He also compared the GOP to the 'Know-Nothing Party' of the late 1800s.
Trump drew severe criticism by calling Mexican immigrants rapists, drug-peddlers and murders in early July; after illegal Mexican immigrant Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez fatally shot 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco.
