Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party for the 2020 election, told CNN's Don Lemon he finds President Trump's comments amid the protests "thoroughly irresponsible."
"I think he's thoroughly irresponsible. Thoroughly irresponsible. I mean, it is just absolutely — he talks like — I'm afraid I'll say something I'll regret. I just find him thoroughly, totally irresponsible," Biden said.
He later added while pushed by Lemon: "This President steps across the line constantly."
"He is totally, thoroughly wrong the way he's handling it. It is not presidential. It is not consistent with what other presidents doing. It's not consistent with our values. It's not consistent with who we are as a people. This President steps across the line constantly, the way — well, 'When the looting starts, the shooting starts.' Come on. What president says that?"
