Biden meets with black leaders at local church amid unrest

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden met with community leaders at a predominantly African American church in Delaware Monday morning, leaving home for a second consecutive day to address exploding racial tensions that have begun to reshape the upcoming presidential election. The former vice president who will represent Democrats on the ballot against President Donald Trump this fall has struggled in recent weeks to be heard from his basement television studio over the noise of dueling national crises. But after another night of violent protests, the 77-year-old Democrat was meeting with roughly a dozen local black leaders during a meeting in his hometown ahead of a virtual meeting with mayors across the nation.
