President Biden told the crowd at a Howard University graduation ceremony “White supremacy” is the “most dangerous terrorist threat” the United States faces.

“Union over disunion. Progress over retreat. To stand up against the poison of White supremacy like I did in my inaugural address to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland.”
After applause from the crowd, Biden continued, “I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU. I say it wherever I go.”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
Biden received an honorary degree from the university Saturday for what the school said is “much deserved for his years of transformational service as U.S. Senator, Vice President, and now as President of the United States.”
