The Vice President was interviewed on Monday and said that Bernie Sanders has fought against income inequality for years. The Vice President also said that the income inequality fight is “relatively new” for Hillary Clinton, as she has used her time to focus on “other things.”
“Bernie is speaking to a yearning that is deep and real and he has credibility on it,” Biden said. “And that is the absolute enormous concentration of wealth in a small group of people with the new class now being able to be shown being left out.”
He said Clinton, who is campaigning in Iowa on Tuesday, had not focused on income inequality as long.
“It’s relatively new for Hillary to talk about that,” Biden said. “Hillary’s focus has been other things up to now and that’s been Bernie’s. No one questions Bernie’s authenticity on those issues.”
