Joe Biden spent over an hour face-to-face with Jacob Blake‘s family … and even spoke with Jacob by phone from his hospital bed.
Civil rights attorney Ben Crump said the Democratic Presidential nominee, along with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, spent a “very engaging” 90-minute in-person meeting with Jacob’s father, sisters and brother in their hometown of Kenosha, WI. Crump joined by phone along with Jacob’s mother and Jacob himself from his hospital bed.
Crump, the Blake family’s attorney, says they were “very impressed that the Bidens were so engaged and willing to really listen.” He added … “They talked about changing the disparate treatment of minorities in police interactions, the impact of selecting Kamala Harris as a Black woman as his running mate” and his plans for change.
As for Biden’s convo with Jacob himself … Crump says the candidate extended “a sense of humanity, treating him as a person worthy of consideration and prayer.”
The sit down comes less than a week after Jacob’s father spoke by phone with Biden and Harris.
Biden’s trip to Kenosha comes on the heels of President Trump‘s … who did not meet with the Blake family or even mention Blake by name during the visit.
