NEW YORK, NY (January 15) – President Biden today told Rev. Al Sharpton he was driven to run for another term over the alarmingly anti-democratic remarks Donald Trump has been making on the campaign trail. 

“Trump is saying things that are just off the wall,” the President told Rev. Sharpton during an appearance on his syndicated radio show, Keeping It Real. “He’s the most anti-democratic … president in American history. The things he’s saying, he means them. He’s talking about he’s running to get revenge on people.”

During today’s discussion, Rev. Sharpton recalled his conversation with Biden and Martin Luther King III during the 2020 NAN Martin Luther King Day Breakfast in Washington, D.C. The President, then still a candidate, said the passion and outrage he felt after the 2017 Charlottesville protests against the removal of confederate statues drove him to run for office.

“What made you decide to run for re-election?” Rev. Sharpton then asked. “What was the thing that really close in your head saying, ‘I can’t go now. I have to do this four more years.’?”

President Biden then said it was Trump’s alarming remarks on the campaign trail to undermine democracy and get revenge on any political enemies. He also pointed to Trump’s recent statements that he hoped a recession or depression happened in the next 12 months.

“He does not want it to happen on ‘my watch,’” Biden told Rev. Sharpton. “He wouldn’t be talking about this if he didn’t acknowledge that the economy is doing pretty damn well, particularly for people who need the most help.” 

Their more than 12-minute discussion also overviewed some of actions the Biden Administration has delivered for Black Americans. That included a cap on insulin payments, measures to expand access for Black-owned businesses, and the cancelation of billions of dollars in student debt.
