Joe Biden speaks at the Emgage Action's Million Muslim Voters Summit.

Democratic presidential puppet-nominee Joe Biden, becoming known for uncomfortable gaffes and frequent incoherence, pandered to Muslim voters on July 20 with the assertion that he wants to see U.S. schools teaching more about Islam.

“I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith,” said Biden, who also wishes he could be president. “I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths. It’s one of the great confessional faiths.”

Biden was addressing the “Million Muslim Votes” summit hosted by a group called Emgage Action, which is the country’s largest Muslim American PAC. The group has made its politics obvious by endorsing Biden in April, but only after endorsing Bernie Sanders first, during the Democratic primary.

Sanders, despite a strong following, was left on the side of the road by the Democratic party.

According to a FOX News report, Biden told the Muslim group he would end President Donald Trump’s travel ban affecting Muslim-majority countries on day one of his presidency.

He also blamed Trump for “an unconscionable rise in Islamophobia.”

A number of Muslim American officials, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., signed a letter penned by Emgage Action endorsing Biden on July 20.

“Our number one goal is to remove Donald Trump from office,” the letter said. “A Biden administration will move the nation forward on many of the issues we care about.”

These “issues” were suspiciously close to all the Democratic Party’s most well-worn talking points: “racial justice,” affordable healthcare, climate change and immigration.
