If the allegations are to be believed, President Joe Biden has thus far been making policy decisions based on the premise that white people are “incredibly racist” according to a new book, and the White House won’t deny it.
For weeks, The New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin had released snippets of their book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” to help promote sales. Covering everything from inside looks at the Capitol on January 6 to behind-the-scenes intrigue during Biden’s presidential campaign, there is still a great deal to unpack now that it has been available for a week.
A Fox News Digital report honed in on one unverified claim about some of the reasoning applied by a top adviser toward the selection of then-Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) to be Biden’s running mate. That excerpt referred to Harris as “the safest of choices” considering how “incredibly racist” white people are.
“In the reckoning of one close adviser to Biden,” the authors wrote, “Harris was ‘in many ways the safest, most obvious choice. But to call her merely a Goldilocks pick, this person says, would be to underrate the gumption Biden showed in putting her on the ticket.”
“Harris,” they went on, “had scored the best in campaign polling among all the Black women considered for the job, but the data had not suggested she would be a risk-free choice.”
“You know, white women are incredibly racist. As are white men. None of it was safe,” the unnamed adviser allegedly said. “It was a risky thing to do. But it was the safest of choices we had.”
This same book was reported to claim that Biden had been wondering if Harris’s team had deliberately sabotaged the other contenders for running mate during the 2020 presidential campaign. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) and former national security adviser Susan Rice were among the top picks at the time and they received heightened public scrutiny, and “something about this seemed more deliberate, even targeted,” the book explained.”
“Even Joe Biden wondered aloud: Was Harris’s team driving this?” the authors detailed before later noting that it was Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain who had insisted Harris was the best choice for the ticket. They went on to report other ways that Klain was alleged to be a divisive figure in the party, including drawing ire from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
However, this is not the only time the administration has made decisions that support perceived racism as the predominant factor.

By May 13, Karine Jean-Pierre will replace Jen Psaki as White House press secretary despite her belief that the Fox News Channel is racist and will continue to be racist moving forward. Similarly, Biden had made clear prior to the nomination of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court that he was limiting his selection to black women candidates only.
Furthermore, Klain is not the only influencer with Biden’s ear reported to be divisive. Director of the Office of Public Engagement and Biden senior adviser Cedric Richmond allegedly referred to Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) of the progressive “Squad” as “f*cking morons” and “f*cking idiots.”
Richmond was reportedly cautioning against the influence of the progressive movement on the Democratic agenda and they had, in turn, been targeting him for his connections to the fossil fuel industry. Steve Ricchetti, a counselor to Biden supported Richmond’s posture on the Squad, allegedly stating the “problem with the left is they don’t understand they lost.”
Fox News reached out to the White House for clarity on the statements made in the book, and in response, they neither confirmed nor denied the veracity, offering only, “We respect that there will be no shortage of books written about the administration containing a wide variety of claims. We don’t plan to engage in confirmations or denials when it comes to the specifics of those claims.”
