Biden Says Islam Should be Taught More in U.S. Schools, Decries ‘Rise in Islamophobia’ Under Trump

Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden said Monday that he wants schools in the U.S. to teach more about Islam and claimed that there is an “unconscionable rise in Islamophobia” under the Trump administration.
