IOWA CITY, Iowa — Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday refused to say his own remarks about President Trump were divisive or added to the already heated rhetoric following the deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, last Saturday.
“My remarks were accurate and straightforward, the truth,” Biden told the Washington Examiner during a campaign stop at the opening of a campaign headquarters in the Hawkeye State.
Earlier in the day, Biden told Iowa voters during a campaign stop in Burlington that Trump is “fueling a literal carnage” in America with his incendiary rhetoric and racist attacks.
He added, “I wish I could say that this all began with Donald Trump and will end with him. But I can’t and I won’t.”
