2020 presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden will give his acceptance speech from Delaware instead; Peter Doocy reports from Wilmington.
Former Vice President Joe Biden raised eyebrows Thursday with comments comparing the African American and Latino communities.
During an interview that aired at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists, NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro pressed the presumptive Democratic nominee if he would "re-engage" with Cuba as president, something she suggested would have an impact on Cuban-American voters in Florida.
"Yes, yes," Biden responded. "And by the way, what you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
