Biden condemns ‘poison’ of white supremacy following Buffalo shooting

Joe Biden insisted that "evil will not win" as he gave a speech condemning white supremacy following a mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday (14 May).

An 18-year-old white man has been arrested after allegedly opening fire at the store in a majority-Black neighbourhood.

"White supremacy is a poison running through our body politics," Biden said.
