Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden twisted President Trump’s signature slogan against him Monday, changing “Make America Great Again” to “Make America Moral Again.”

“Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity and treating our people with dignity and this God-awful deliberate division that’s being taken in order to separate people to aggrandize his own power,” the Delaware Democrat added in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

In the interview, Mr. Biden also addressed the controversy surrounding Anita Hill and her treatment during Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings

“I was grateful she took the call. I don’t want to get into our private conversation, but the point is I was chairman of the committee. I believed her from the very beginning, but I was chairman. She did not get a fair hearing. She did not get treated well. That’s my responsibility,” Mr. Biden said.

“I committed that I’m determined to continue the fight, that we see to it that we basically change the culture in this country. Where a woman gets put in a position where she’s disbelieved. As a committee chairman, she did not get treated well, I take responsibility for that,” he said.

The former vice president said during an interview with ABC’s “The View” that he “did everything in my power to do what I thought was within the rules.”

Ms. Hill has rebuffed apology attempts made by Mr. Biden, saying she “cannot be satisfied by simply saying I’m sorry for what happened to you.”

“I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose,” she told The New York Times.
