Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has pledged to end President Donald Trump’s highly controversial travel ban affecting mainly Muslim-majority countries on day one of his presidency during an online summit yesterday.

The Muslim community was the first to feel Trump’s “assault” with his “vile Muslim ban”, said Biden during his address at Emgage Action, the largest Muslim American PAC (political action committee).

In a speech that blamed the Trump administration for “an unconscionable rise in Islamophobia”, Biden said that “the Muslim community, Latino community and black community, native Americans, had endured four years of “constant insult”.”

Biden reiterated his pledge to roll back Trump’s Muslim travel ban on “day one”.

Concluding his remarks, Biden promised to undo the damage caused by Trump. “He’s making a mockery of what we stand for,” said Biden of his Republican opponent. “We can do something about it. I’m here today to ask you to join me in the fight to rip this poison from the government root and stem, or as the famous case said, root and branch.”
