Fox News host Harris Faulkner lit up presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for his remarks during an interview on Friday, where he said if black voters don’t support him then they are not really black.

"If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black," Biden said to radio host Charlamagne tha God.

"I’ve been fighting against this notion that you are not black enough unless you think a certain way, you vote a certain way, you speak a certain way, you do certain things. My whole life, I grew up military. Pretty much neutral along the zone of, can’t we all just get along no matter what we look like? I have bi-racial daughters. Melissa, you know them. This is more than just a little offensive. It is shortsighted, it is a blind spot for this former vice president," Faulkner said.

"He should have gotten up immediately on whatever venue, microphone he had. I would have said it for him immediately right there, the one he was already in, on 'The Breakfast Club' And say, 'You know what? Let me restate that,'" she continued.

Faulkner then read a statement released from Black Voices for Trump, which read:

“White liberal elitists have continuously dictated which Black Americans are allowed to come to the table and have a voice.  It is clear now more than ever, following these racist and dehumanizing remarks, that Joe Biden believes Black men and women are incapable of being independent or free-thinking. He truly believes that he, a 77-year-old white man, should dictate how Black people should behave. Biden has a history of racial condescension and today he once again proved what a growing number of Black Americans and I have always known: Joe Biden does not deserve our votes.”
