Joe Biden apologized Friday for having told a popular radio host and African American voters in an interview that "you ain’t black" if they back President Donald Trump's reelection.

At the end of an 18-minute radio interview with The Breakfast Club's Charlamagne tha God airing Friday morning, Biden responded to the host's desire for the candidate to answer more questions by saying,"You got more questions?

At another point on the call, Biden admitted, "I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American folks for granted ...

Following questions about why Biden had shown "so much resistance" to admitting how his 1994 crime bill affected the spike of black incarcerations, the former vice president grew frustrated after it was suggested that he had done more harm than good to the African American community.

The interview, which was taped Thursday and broadcast Friday, was halted by a campaign staffer after the radio host asked Biden whether he would commit to choosing a black running mate in reward for the strong support black Americans had given him throughout his career.

Then, noting that the radio host had more questions, Biden proceeded to make his "you ain’t black" remark.

The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day.

Biden made that point during the interview when asked if he could attract enough African American and Hispanic youth voters to win the presidency.

"Take a look at my record, man," Biden said
