Vice President Biden Remarks at American Constitution Society
This was part of the opening session of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy 2016 National Convention, held at the Capital Hilton.
Vice President Joe Biden criticized Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his comments against U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel who was overseeing lawsuits against Trump University. He said the candidate’s comments tilted toward “authoritarianism and tyranny” and warned that he would defy the courts if they ruled against him if he were to be elected president. The vice president also spoke against his former colleagues in the Senate who refused to grant a hearing to President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Merrick Garland.
