WATCH: Colin Powell “I support Joe Biden for the Presidency of the United States”

Colin Powell is set to appear on day 2 of the DNC.

Segments of a pre-recorded video of Powell’s statement have already been released by MSNBC.

In the video, Powell says “What I learned growing up in the South Bronx and serving in uniform with the same value that Joe Biden’s parents instilled in him. Scranton, Pennsylvania.”

Powell continues “I support Joe Biden for the presidency of the United States because those values still define him and we need to restore those values to the White House. Our country needs a commander in chief who takes care of our troops in the same way he would is own family.”

“For Joe Biden, that doesn’t need teaching. It comes from the experience he shares with millions of military families, sending his beloved son off to war and praying to God he would come home safe.” he adds.
