During a Trump campaign rally in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump Jr., the President's son, lashed out at Joe Biden with accusations the former Vice President didn't solve racism when he could have.
The ignorance of this entire family is just baffling. https://t.co/6Jb5FzsSga— Nursegal74 (@Nursegal74)1603224454.0
"Well, he is. He was best friends with every segregationist ever to walk the halls of Congress."
@RawStory yeah like the republicans would have let him! Look at McConnel block all of his judicial appointments!— Meshel Lee (@Meshel Lee)1603236105.0
Trump Jr. lashed out at the Vice President for failing to eliminate racism during his time in the Senate.
"But he's going to fix those issues now, right? Now he's going to fix racial tensions in America. Why did you wait 47 years, Joe?"
"You know, if you really cared, if you thought it was something you were going to campaign on, maybe you would have utilized, I don't know, your 38 years in the United States Senate."
@RawStory They are becoming more and more unhinged. They have no platform to run on and zero coherent argument for re-election— M L (@M L)1603224999.0
Trump Jr. went on to explain how, if Joe Biden was truly interested in eliminating racism, he would have done so while he was Vice President to Barack Obama.
"How about if you really wanted to do something about the issue — because this is what I would have done. Now, I have a brain but maybe it's different. But if I really cared about the issue I would have maybe utilized my eight years as vice president to the first African-American president."
Donald Trump Jr.: Biden should have fixed racism when a Black man was president youtu.be
Twitter seemed supremely unconvinced by Don Jr.'s arguments.
@RawStory Whatever that means, your dad only exacerbated it with the "very fine people" and other tacit approvals— B G Gardenia (@B G Gardenia)1603226079.0

Many pointed out that while Barack Obama and Joe Biden may not have been able to solve racism, President Donald Trump seems intent on making it worse.
@RawStory Trump fixed it? Wow, missed that? All I saw were Tiki torches, racists being called fine people and lot… https://t.co/aR6ZtqoAbS— Nick Pandher (@Nick Pandher)1603225223.0

If Don Jr. was hoping to win over any undecided voters, it doesn't look like this speech is going to help his goal.

And he calls Biden a "racist." AYKM??? https://t.co/Oo3s7apRej— New Civil Rights (@New Civil Rights)1603225354.0
Though racism is far from being "fixed" in the United States, voters who take the problem seriously overwhelmingly favor Biden for President.
