White racists are the main terrorist threat in the United States. This opinion was expressed by President Joe Biden, a fragment of his speech was published by CNN.
The American leader called supporters of white supremacy and members of the Ku Klux Klan “the most dangerous people in the United States.” “I will make sure that my Justice Department and its civil rights division pay close attention to these very people. I will make sure that we basically focus on fighting the rise of the white supremacy movement,” Biden said.
The politician stressed that the proponents of these views are “mentally ill and dangerous people.” He said the new administration would examine the influence of former military and police officers on the rise in popularity of the movement.
Earlier it became known that two members of the U.S. presidential administration in the field of environment, who were appointed by President-elect Joe Biden, consider systemic racism as one of the important causes of negative climate change. It is noted that climate issues, along with issues of social justice will be central to the new U.S. administration.
