Biden Says Trump Causes Racial Violence in Speech Following Mass Shootings

The Primary: Biden, in a speech in Iowa, criticized Trump’s handling of national tragedy and argued the president invites hate and racism.


Who? What? Why?: “The words of the president matter,” he said. “In both clear language and in code, this president has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation.”

The Baseline: While some praise Biden’s words, others, including Trump, derided the speech. 


From the Left: Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post writes that Biden "reminded all of us of what a presidential president sounds like."


From the Right: Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post writes that Biden delivered "a big, important speech Wednesday in Iowa could not have been more stark."
