Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign ad targeting Donald Trump drew backlash online, with many calling the video xenophobic and racist.
The ad, titled “Unprepared | Joe Biden for President,” targets Trump by highlighting his slow response to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to HuffPost.
 
“When Trump rolled over for the Chinese, he took their word for it. Trump praised the Chinese 15 times in January and February as the coronavirus spread across the world,” the narrator said in the video.
Biden’s campaign ad will reportedly run online in the key battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, North Carolina and Florida.
However, the ad did not sit well with many people. Some took to Twitter to call out Biden’s xenophobic and racist campaign video.

“Wow @JoeBiden. Already trying to out-Trump Trump,” Cecilia Wang, a civil rights lawyer and former public defender, said in a series of tweets. “This kind of fearmongering is causing violent attacks on Asian Americans. If you are trying to reform your past history of racist policymaking, like your 1994 crime bill, you had better do some homework. This ain’t it.”
