Vice President Joe Biden has derisively given Donald Trump a thank-you – for unmasking the "subtle" racism that exists in America.
At his home at the Naval Observatory during an event in honor of Black History Month, Biden blasted the GOP presidential front-runner by name, as well as rival Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, for their incendiary rhetoric, Politico reports.
"I want to thank Donald Trump," Biden said, getting a laugh from the crowd, Politico reports.
"The stuff he’s doing, and others, the stuff Cruz is doing. He’s making the American people look in the mirror. And the American people are honest. And they look in the mirror and see what’s looking back at them."
He said the GOP primary race may finally help the nation confront, and combat, institutional racism.
"Maybe the divisiveness, particularly with the other team right now, maybe it’s a good thing, to awaken the American people about the subtle and not so subtle deals going on," he added.
