Joe Biden has branded Donald Trump’s “stand by” Proud Boys comments a “clarion call” for white supremacists.

The Democratic presidential nominee took aim at the president’s “Stand back and stand by” debate remarks during Monday’s live town hall event on NBC.

Mr Biden was asked by an undecided Black voter how he would deal with extremists and white supremacists if elected.

Mr Biden said the FBI knows that white supremacists were the biggest terror threat to the US and he attacked Mr Trump for refusing to condemn them.

“It was a clarion call to get ready, to get ready. It was totally inappropriate," said Mr Biden.
