During a speech at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s 46th Annual Gala, Joe Biden mixed up his crowd, addressing them as “The Congressional Black Caucus.”
According to the New York Post, he said, “I know Sister Norma lives the lessons nuns taught me growing up. Lessons based on the Gospel of Matthew: feed the hungry, care for the sick, welcome strangers.”
“They echo what my dad taught me, and I mean this sincerely, my dad used to say, ‘Everyone, everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect,’” he continued.
Then, Biden stated, “The Congressional Black Caucus embodies all those values.”
He did not respectfully correct his mistake or even acknowledge it.
President Donald Trump’s senior advisor, Jason Miller, posted about the news stating, “And Democrats wonder why Joe Biden’s bottoming out with Black and Hispanic voters.”
This comes after RSBN reported that Biden’s favor among minority voters is diminishing. A recent Rasmussen Report found that Biden holds a 58 percent disapproval rating among minority voters.
In addition, according to the New York Times, Biden received 70 percent of the minority vote in 2020.
His inability to maintain good standing with minority voters is likely to affect the 2024 presidential election and is an ongoing concern.
Just last week, he was criticized for stating that minorities and veterans were uneducated, per the New York Post.
He said, “We’ve seen record lows in unemployment particularly — and I’ve focused on this my whole career — particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans, you know, the workers without high school diplomas.”
