While appearing for an exclusive interview on ABC, Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris claimed that President Trump has never said “Black lives matter.”
However, video has surfaced of the President saying those exact words just a few weeks ago.
As transcribed from her ABC interview, Kamala said:
“Joe speaks the words and actually knows how to say the words ‘Black lives matter’ contrary to what the President of the United States, the current President of the United States does, which is to sow hate and division full-time amd has never spoken those words and will never speak the words ‘Black lives matter.'”
Soon after Kamala’s remarks aired on national television, a video clip circulated on Twitter that shows Trump saying “Black lives matter” during an interview on Fox News.
“Black lives matter,” Trump is heard saying in the clip. “Nobody’s done better for our Black community than me — nobody, with a possible exception of Abraham Lincoln — it’s true.” Video Below
This evening Kamala Harris FALSELY claimed that President Trump has never said "Black lives matter."
