"Well, it feels good to be out of my house".
Biden has been campaigning from a home TV studio since the coronavirus pandemic made traditional rallies and events impossible. "Biden today", tweeted the network's senior political analyst below a photo of a masked Biden at a DE veterans' memorial for Memorial Day.
During Biden's interview with Charlamagne tha God, he said he is considering multiple black women including failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and California Sen.
He and Jill Biden both wore black masks while laying a wreath of white flowers at the memorial before observing a moment of silence for those who died in military service.
Some of those efforts have been marred by technical glitches and other awkward moments, while the president has knocked Mr Biden for essentially campaigning from his basement.
"That is most condescending and arrogant comment I've heard in a very long time", Scott, the sole black Republican serving in the US Senate, said Friday on Fox Business.
Biden has frequently appeared in media interviews from his DE basement, where he has on occasion faced technical glitches and drawn taunts from the Trump campaign.
The remarks sparked an uproar on social media, and the Trump campaign seized on them as evidence Biden was taking the black vote for granted. He also was not wearing a mask at that event.
"The presidency is about a lot more than tweeting from your golf cart", Biden posted on Twitter on Sunday.
Trump's refusal to wear a mask in recent public appearances has drawn criticism, and claims the president is undermining the advice of public health authorities. "Donald Trump should try it, because his failure to act early on producing [personal protective equipment], on ramping up testing, and implementing a coherent national response to this crisis has cost thousands of Americans their lives".
