WASHINGTON: Joe Biden accused election rival Donald Trump of suppressing diversity on Friday, as the US president stepped up efforts to shore up support among Black voters ahead of November´s election.

In a speech at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, the 81-year-old Democrat said the “extreme” Republican and his allies were trying to “erase history.”

“My predecessor and his extreme MAGA friends are now going after diversity, equity and inclusion all across America,” said Biden.
