Description:
Joe Biden declared he "should not have been so cavalier" on Friday after he told a prominent black radio host that African-Americans who back President Donald Trump "ain't black".

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee quickly moved to address the fallout from his remark, which was interpreted by some as presuming that black Americans would vote for him.

"I shouldn't have been such a wise guy," Mr Biden said.

"No one should have to vote for any party based on their race or religion or background."

That was an acknowledgement of the stinging criticism he received in response to his comments, which he made earlier in the day on The Breakfast Club, a radio program that is popular in the black community.
