President Donald Trump on Friday said his presumptive Democratic challenger Joe Biden “is no longer worthy of the Black Vote.”
“After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.

Trump’s latest attempt to paint Biden as a racist comes weeks after his niece, Mary Trump, said that she heard her uncle use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs.
Mary Trump, author of a scathing new book about her family, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” made the allegation during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow last month.
Maddow pressed her on comments made to The Washington Post in which Mary Trump said her uncle is “clearly racist” and described growing up in a family of “knee-jerk” racism.
Maddow then asked whether that was a generalization about her family’s casual bigotry or if she’d actually heard her uncle use racist language.
“Oh yeah, of course I did,” Mary Trump said. “And I don’t think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.”
Mary Trump then confirmed that she had heard Trump use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs.
