Former Vice President Joe Biden came under swift fire on Friday when he pushed back against the popular radio host Charlamagne Tha God’s suggestion that he might still have “questions” for the candidate before the 2020 election. “You’ve got more questions?” Biden asked. “Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Shortly after that interview, Biden apologized for his remarks on a conference call with the Black Chamber of Commerce. Biden admonished himself for being “so cavalier” and said, “No one should have to vote for any party based on their race or religion or background.”
