Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden on Wednesday defended U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Detroit and railed against President Donald Trump.
“It’s outrageous what he’s doing,” Biden said after lunching at the Brome restaurant in Dearborn with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and local Muslim leaders, according to Jonathan Oosting of The Detroit News.
‘“Go back home?’ Does he know here home is Michigan?” Biden said. “C’mon man. ‘Send her back?’ We gotta send him back.”
Trump triggered cries of racism when he suggested Tlaib and three other congresswomen of color —known as "the squad"-- should go back to where they came from.
On Tuesday, Trump called Tlaib a "crazed lunatic."
