Joe Biden said he isn’t a socialist, but Latino voters paid more attention to what he wasn’t willing to say, a Latino Christian leader said.
Latino voters have indicated that fears of socialism drove them to mark the ballot for President Donald Trump.
“I was in Venezuela 20 years ago,” Tony Suarez, chief operating officer of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, told The Christian Post. “The government there was promising to give you this and that, and now they’re dying of starvation. Socialist government wants to take over every part of your life.”
For Latinos like Suarez, whose family fled to the United States to escape religious persecution in Colombia, socialism means death and starvation. When Suarez described it, his voice rose in intensity.
“It’s what Biden doesn’t say,” he said.
