[CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD] : "Listen, you got to come see us when you come to New York VP Biden." [BIDEN] "I will." [CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD] "Because it's a long way until November.

We got more questions." [BIDEN] "You got more questions but I tell ya, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." [CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD] "It don't have nothing to do with Trump.

It has to do with the fact I want something for my community." That exchange, which aired Friday, earned Biden a swift rebuke from the Trump campaign, Republicans, as well as some black Democrats on Twitter.

Biden apologized soon after during a call with the U.S. Black Chambers, an African-American business group saying, “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy," adding “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.” Biden, who served eight years as No.
