Vice President Joe Biden was the first presidential candidate to take the stage and told the crowd he had planned to talk about education but needed to address the events that happened in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over the weekend.

“We can’t fix the problem if we refuse to name the problem,” he said. “This is white nationalism, this is white supremacy, this is about hate.”
