Like many other high-ranking political officials, have decided to weigh in on the racist scandal that has hit Ralph Northam.
Northam is being publicly called to resign after a picture that was unearthed from the 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook went viral.
The black and white photo showed a man in a KKK robe and a man in blackface.
Northam has apologized for the controversial picture and went on to give conflicting statements.
On the first day of Black History Month, the Democratic governor of Virginia was forced to talk about the man in the Ku Klux Klan costume and the other person wearing blackface.
He said: “When I was confronted with the images yesterday, I was appalled that they appeared on my page, but I believe, then and now, that I am not either of the people in that photo.”
He went on to reveal that he did paint his face as part of a Michael Jackson costume for a party that took place in 1982 and bragged about being able to do the moonwalk.
He later changed his tune and stated that it was not him in the picture. He also claimed he does not recall posing for the event and did not play a part in the publication of the yearbook.
And Mr. Trump was quick to blast him with this tweet: “Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.” This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late-term abortion. Unforgivable!”
Mrs. Clinton reposted a tweet from the
Vice President Joe Biden said in a brief statement that Northam had “lost all moral authority” and should resign.
Biden wrote: "There is no place for racism in America. Governor Northam has lost all moral authority and should resign immediately, Justin Fairfax is the leader Virginia needs now."
Mr. Fairfax, the Democratic lieutenant governor of Virginia, is predicted to replace Northam if he caves to the pressure and resigns.
