TRANSCRIPT

Joe Biden: "You're registering and turning out one million Muslim voters this November."

Presidential hopeful Joe Biden is stumping for Muslim support.

During a virtual "Million Muslim Votes Summit" on Monday, he asserted his knowledge of theology: "One of my avocation is theology ... We all come from the same root here in terms of our fundamental, basic beliefs."

While pressing public schools to teach Islam, he said: "I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith," and vowing to end President Trump's anti-terrorism measures, added: "If I have the honor of being president, I will end the Muslim ban on day one — day one."

The summit was endorsed by Emgage Action, the largest Islamic Super PAC in the United States.

The group includes on the Summit's discussion panel known anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, who said this about the Trump vs. Biden race: "This election for me is about one simple question: Are we ready as a nation to defeat fascism?"

Biden's appearance follows endorsements earlier that day from numerous left-wing Muslim politicians like Minnesota attorney general Keith Ellison, Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Indiana Congressman André Carson.

Hillary Clinton refused to attend any Emgage events during her 2016 run, and Barack Obama only did so "cautiously," making Biden the most pro-Islam Democratic frontrunner in American history.

Biden: "We're all connected. No one is free while other people are oppressed."
