Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has raised eyebrows after comments he made at a September roundtable resurfaced.

On Monday, a clip of the former vice president speaking with veterans in Tampa, Florida began circulating online.

In the video from September 15, Biden attempted to applaud essential workers of color. However, critics have said his words came off as callous and racially insensitive.

Earlier this year, Biden also found himself in hot water for telling black voters that if they don’t support his bid for the presidency “they ain’t black.”
