Vice President Joe Biden has said that he finds some of the comments made by GOP front-runner Donald Trump over the course of his campaign to be discouraging.
“When I listen to some of the stuff Donald Trump says it just makes me sad,” Biden said in an interview with Billboard.
“It’s never, never been wise to try and appeal to the darker side of human nature,” he added. “Abraham Lincoln was right — it’s about appealing to our better angels. That’s who Americans are and that’s what they want.”
Asked whether it was “disconcerting” for a candidate to promote “aggression among his supporters,” the vice president said it was “the antithesis of everything this country is about.”
