Biden: If Trump Doesn't Have a Racist Bone in His Body, He 'Has No Bones'
2020 hopeful takes another shot at Trump
Former Vice President and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden responded to Trump's remarks saying he does "not have a racist bone" his body.
Biden jumped in on the controversy surrounding Trump's "go home" tweets as many Democrats said were "racist."
Frontrunner Biden joined with the House voted on Tuesday to condemn the president’s tweets as racist.
Asked if the Republican members who refrained from condemning Trump are racist, Biden instead said the GOP has "lost its nerve."
"It's lost its nerve. I mean, this is not — I don't believe that the vast majority of Republicans in the Congress feel this way — but right now he owns the Republican Party," Biden said.
"[Trump] has, between redistricting that's taken place, gerrymandering, and unlimited money, he has been able to [control the Republican Party.]
It doesn't make it justified what they're doing, but I think that's the reason, not because they agree on all these things."
Biden went on to say that if Trump is right that he does "not have a racist bone" in his body, then Trump "has no bones."

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......— Donald J.

Biden praised the Democrats on a Morning Joe interview that aired on Tuesday morning, seemingly unaware that both Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) recent antics may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020, according to a new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday.
Bidens' remarks come a day after the Ocasio-Cortez, and three other female freshman lawmakers condemned President Donald Trump's tweets were he said they should, "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came."
On Friday, Ilhan Omar said the president “shouldn’t be in the office,” in response to similar criticisms from Trump.
Trump's remarks echo those of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who was attacked by Omar last week after he accused her of being the "fire alarm" that exposes the dangers of unfettered immigration.“She isn’t grateful," Carlson said in regards to Omar's attitude.
