Speaking at the Lantos Foundation annual gala, former US Vice-President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr implied that the current administration plays a definitive role in the rise of antisemitic incidents in the country.
Below are some of Joe Biden’s quotes on the matter.
“We are in a battle for the soul of this nation.” – Joe Biden, Mediaite, 5 December 2018
“We have to recognize trend lines are moving in the wrong direction. Earlier this year, the anti-Defamation League published a report of antisemitic incidents had rose nearly 60% alone in 2017. The largest one-year increase since they started keeping records in 1970. That’s not an accident. It’s not an accident.” – Joe Biden, Mediaite, 5 December 2018
“Our leadership is giving license, giving license to this prejudice.” – Joe Biden, The Huffington Post, 5 December 2018
