US President Joe Biden calls out what he says is the “poison” of white supremacist ideology behind a mass shooting in Buffalo, New York.

“White supremacy is a poison running through our body politic and it’s been allowed to fester right in front of our eyes,” Biden said, condemning “those who spread the lie for power, for political gain and for profit.”

“What happened here is simple and straightforward terrorism. Domestic terrorism,” Biden says.
