Biden: Trump’s ‘Xenophobia,’ ‘Sick Message’ Will Not Prevail

Tuesday at a Hispanic heritage event, Vice President Joe Biden said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s “sick message” of “xenophobia,” in the long run “will not prevail.”

Biden said, “I don’t want anybody to be down right now about what’s going on in the Republican Party. I mean this sincerely now, this is not —no. I’m being deadly earnest about this. I want you to remember notwithstanding the fact that there’s one guy absolutely denigrating an entire group of people, appealing to the baser side of human nature, working on this notion of xenophobia in a way that hasn’t occurred in a long time.”

He continued, “What made me think of this I walked out of the house just as Trump was talking, on the television. Folks, this will not prevail. This will not prevail. This will pass. The Trump and that stuff you’re hearing on the other team and this isn’t about Democrat/Republican, it’s about a sick message. This message has been tried on America many times before. We always, always, always, always, always overcome it.”
