Biden Tells Black Americans “I Have Your Back”

President Biden is doubling down on his commitment to stand by Black Americans.

In a new interview, MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart asked Biden, “You promised Black America that you’d have our back. Do you feel you have our backs?”

Biden responded, “I have your back, as much as any president has in American history since Lyndon Johnson. Black wealth has increased by 60 percent, across the board.”

Biden said he has been meeting with Black business owners who are getting government loans and direct payments that have helped get their businesses off the ground. He also mentioned a trio of endorsements over the weekend from major political action committees representing Asian American, Black, and Latino voters.
