Conservative commentator Candace Owens beat up Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday for calling President Trump’s rhetoric about the suburbs a “racist dog whistle”.
Amid turmoil in cities across the country, Trump has tried to spread his message of “law and order” to the suburbs, warning that once the Democrats are in control, violence will spread beyond urban areas.
“Biden refused to use the term LAW & ORDER! It’s going to the suburbs,” Trump tweeted Wednesday, referring to an exchange they had during the presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Biden fired back, insisting that Trump’s comments about the suburbs have racist overtones.
“Enough with the racist dog whistles, Donald. You wouldn’t know any suburbs if you hadn’t taken the wrong turn,” said Biden, repeating the joke he’d made of the debate.
That tweet didn’t go well with Owens.

“That’s such a strange answer – ‘Suburbs’ is a racist dog whistle?” Owens wrote.
She then asked, “Don’t black people live in the suburbs @JoeBiden?”

Law and order has become a dominant theme during the presidential race. The Trump campaign is sending the message that the chaos in Democrat-run cities will only continue if Biden is elected president, while the Biden campaign is telling voters that such violence is taking place under Trump’s watch.
