( – On Saturday, an interview of President Joe Biden with MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart was aired in which Biden reiterated his promise to stand by Black Americans. During the interview, he specifically referenced his support for job creation and supporting Black-owned small businesses. 

Capehart asked the President whether he had felt he had kept his promise of having the backs of Black Americans. In response, Biden noted that he does have their back and that during his presidency Black wealth has had a 60 percent increase. 

As he argued he has previously had meetings with Black business owners who were benefiting from government loans and receiving direct payments that have assisted in their businesses taking off. He added that this is not just the case for Black Americans but also for other minority groups in the country including Asian Americans and Hispanic people. This is why he has received endorsements from three major organizations representing these voters for the 2024 general election. 

On Saturday the Latino Victory Fund, the Collective PAC, and the AAPI Victory Fund had put out their endorsements while also providing a $30 million commitment to help provide more support to the Biden reelection campaign in their efforts to mobilize voters of color. 

Biden has argued that this support is in part because his administration has helped small businesses remain in business, and that because of their efforts, there has been a larger number of small businesses now than there had been for 50 years. 

Biden also pointed out that they remained committed to having production return to the United States and being reliant on American workers.
