Presidential Nominees Rarely Speak To Muslim Audiences. Biden Did Monday

July 21, 2020

Joe Biden spoke to a notable Muslim American advocacy organization on Monday. 

Just his presence — albeit virtually, due to the pandemic, from his home in Delaware — was rather historic for Muslim leaders, who can't recall another presidential nominee speaking directly to such a large group of Muslims. The group, Emgage Action, says 3,000 people RSVP'd for its livestreamed event.

Biden didn't introduce any new policy priorities, but his tone marked a noticeable departure from how many politicians have addressed Muslims in recent years.
