Biden is promising a sweeping effort for racial and economic justice if he’s elected president.
The Democratic presidential nominee said Thursday at a drive-in rally at the Michigan State Fairgrounds that President Donald Trump has encouraged a rise of white supremacy, armed militias and bitter divisions.
Biden says he’d lead emphasizing unity while acknowledging systemic racism. He praised Black Americans especially for “a deep love of this country that for far too long” has not fully recognized generations of oppression.
The former vice president promised an economic program that would boost opportunities for American workers of all races and ethnicities. After hailing the U.S. auto industry that is concentrated in Michigan, he says he wants a manufacturing renaissance to “make it in America, make it in Michigan.”
