WATCH: Joe Biden “I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith”

Speaking with the Muslim American political group Emgage action virtually at their “Million Muslim Votes Summit” after receiving the group’s endorsement, 2020 candidate Joe Biden said “I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.”

Joe Biden:

Look, one of the things that I think is important is I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.

I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths — it’s one of the great confessional faiths, and what people don’t realize is one of my avocations is theology, don’t realize is that we all come from the same root here in terms of our fundamental basic beliefs and I just want to thank you for giving me the opportunity, for being engaged, for committing to action this November.
