2020 Democratic running mates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are not appealing to young African American voters, Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell said Monday.

“For every African American, especially, young African Americans, we point clearly to the 1994 Crime Bill, which was sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden. One which gave $9.7 billion to build private prisons in our country and provided grants and incentivized states to create what we call the three-strike law,” Caldwell told “Fox & Friends.”

Caldwell said the legislation was “very intentional and it created a fair amount of injustice for African Americans.”

“Joe Biden is a part of the problem therefore I don’t understand how anyone could be thinking he could fix the injustices when he was the one who created them,” Caldwell said.

Vice presidential hopeful Harris took shots at President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr on Sunday for comments they made denying there is systemic racism in America’s judicial system.

Harris pushed back on Barr’s assertion last week that he does not believe there are two justice systems in America and that Democrats are pushing a “false narrative” when it comes to the shooting of Black people in the United States.

“I think that Donald Trump and Bill Barr are spending full time in a different reality,” Harris said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The reality of America today is what we have seen over generations and, frankly, since our inception, which is we do have two systems of justice in America.”

She added: “I don’t think that most reasonable people who are paying attention to the facts would dispute that there are racial disparities and a system that has engaged in racism in terms of how the laws have been enforced.”

Harris’ hit on Trump and Barr comes just days after the attorney general pushed back on claims that African Americans are treated differently by law enforcement.

“I don’t think there are two justice systems,” Barr said on CNN last week. “I think the narrative that the police are in some epidemic of shooting unarmed Black men is simply a false narrative and also the narrative that’s based on race.”

Caldwell said young African Americans are not excited about Biden’s candidacy nor Harris’.

“Some of them just say hey, we’re not going to vote because they are a part of the system that got us in this mess to begin with,” Caldwell said.

“Joe Biden is going to have an issue because there is no way he is going to get President Obama’s 2008 numbers when it comes to African American support, which [was] at 94, 95, 96 percent. He is not going to get that, therefore, I think Joe Biden is going to lose this race for president.”

President Trump has our back, said Babbitt, Minn., Mayor Andrea Zupancich, who is one of six Democratic mayors in the North Star State to endorse the commander in chief.

“We need to protect our way of life, we need to protect the way we sustain our living up here and the Democrats now are trying to put forth a moratorium against mining and President Trump has been supporting mining the last four years of his term and he has proved that he is behind us and he is looking out for our way of life,” Zupancich told “America’s Newsroom.”

Zupancich’s comments came in the wake of six Minnesota Democratic mayors endorsing Trump for reelection after writing in a letter that Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden hasn’t done anything to help working-class people.

The letter coincided with a visit Friday by Vice President Mike Pence to the Clure Public Marine Terminal in Duluth outside of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility.

“As the vice president spoke at the Clure Public Marine Terminal on Friday, six Iron Range mayors voiced their approval with a well-timed endorsement letter,” according to Duluth News Tribune.

“Today, we don’t recognize the Democratic Party,” the mayors wrote in the letter. “It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We didn’t choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us.”

“Lifelong politicians like Joe Biden are out of touch with the working class, out of touch with what the country needs, and out of touch with those of us here on the Iron Range and in small towns like ours across our nation,” the mayors wrote.

The mayors are Zupancich, Chris Swanson of Two Harbors, John Champa of Chisholm, Larry Cuffe of Virginia, Chuck Novak of Ely, and Robert Vlaisavljevich of Eveleth.

Regarding the endorsement, Zupancich said, “This is all about what we have going up here. This is our way of life. President Trump has been working for us and has proven that he is behind us and understands that the vitality of the minerals that we have for the United States.”

Sen. John Kennedy on Monday advised Americans to “build a fallout shelter” if presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected president in November.

“The vice president says he will transform America. He will and the American people will pay a fearsome price,” Kennedy, R-La., told “Hannity.”

Kennedy said that Biden’s foreign policy is “hugs and hot cocoa” for America’s enemies.

“Build a fallout shelter. You’ll need it. Weakness invites the wolves,” Kennedy said.

Joe Biden tweeted Sunday night that if he gets elected, his administration “won’t just rebuild this nation — we’ll transform it,” raising speculation online about what exactly in the country will be transformed.

The tweet came after a politically charged Fourth of July weekend, as the country works to manage a new surge in COVID-19 cases and tries to emerge from weeks of tense protests that have resulted in a widening divide between Democrats and Republicans. The tweet appeared to be embraced by supporters and was liked 140,000 times as of early Monday.

Biden’s critics from the left have expressed concern that he served in the upper echelon of government for over 40 years and didn’t help solve these major issues in the past.

His critics from the right insist that a Biden White House will take marching orders from the Ocasio-Cortez wing of the party. Some conservatives say his vice president pick will be an early indicator of his administration’s direction.

When reached by Fox News for comment about the tweet, Biden’s campaign sent a link to his website.

Kennedy said Biden’s domestic policy calls for Americans to surrender their money and freedom “to Washington.”

“If you want 52 weeks of vacation a year, vote for [Biden] because he’s going to bankrupt your employer. Here is what he says to our young people: finish school, get a job, and work hard so I, Vice President Biden, can give it to someone who didn’t. Finally, I think he will eviscerate our health care delivery system.”
