Biden, who is running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, said during a town hall in Des Moines with the Asian and Latino Coalition that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” while discussing discrimination faced by low-income students.

“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” He paused, then quickly clarified, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids… No, I really mean it, but think how we think about it,” he said.

While many people in the room understood the point her was trying to make, President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign quickly pounced on the gaffe, tweeting out video of the speech.
“Yikes…have fun mitigating that one,” Andrew Clark, the campaign’s director, tweeted.

Biden’s awkward comments came just days after he came at Trump for having a “toxic tongue” that he said has affected the nation’s divisions, saying that he lacked the moral authority to lead America.
