President Donald Trump is coming out swinging after Joe Biden’s latest gaffe.
Yesterday Biden made a comment comparing the African American and Latino communities that portrayed the former as a monolith. “And by the way, what you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things” Biden said in an interview. It seemed in character for Biden, who not long ago said the quiet part out loud and admitted that Democrats take the black vote for granted, telling a black talk show host that if he didn’t vote for him, then he “ain’t black.”

As Fox News reports:
President Trump on Friday said his presumptive Democratic challenger Joe Biden “is no longer worthy of the Black Vote,” after the former vice president made comments contrasting African American and Latino diversity.
“After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.
Earlier Friday, Trump tweeted: “Sleepy Joe Biden just lost the Black Vote. This statement is a disaster from which there is no recovery!”
The president then deleted the tweet and replaced it with the new one.
I can only slightly disagree with President Trump – Biden isn’t worthy of anyone’s vote.
That gaffe came just one day after being asked if he’s cognitively tested, Biden questioned “why the hell” he would take a test, then proceeded to ask the African American host if he did cocaine.
BIDEN: "No, I haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? C'mon man. That's like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you're taking cocaine or not, what do you think huh? Are you a junkie?" pic.twitter.com/f6UMPJq381

That comment came weeks after Biden boasted that he was regularly cognitively tested.
