"Joe Biden, after a widely praised speech against the president 24 hours ago, is now facing a Trump campaign counter-attack, seizing on a few words on the campaign trail", Mitchell said, adding that "Democratic front-runner Joe Biden has been unleashing scorching attacks against Presdient Trump this week on race".

Tweeting while heading to El Paso for a condolence visit, Mr Trump also said he watched Mr Biden's speech and declared it "Sooo Boring!"

Around 75 attendees at the fundraiser received a three-course meal before the vice president's remarks, and listened to Mr Biden speak.

"It's a shame Joe Biden is sowing more division today, a day that should be about unity and support for Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas", the Trump campaign said in a statement issued in response to Biden's remarks. "I don't think it's that far at all".

Biden has sought to take on Trump since announcing his candidacy back in April, citing the president saying there were "very fine people" on both sides of the Charlottesville attack in 2017.

Biden invoked the rhetoric of previous presidents of both parties, including Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton, who he said "opposed hate". "It's up to us" to fight against hate and for American values, he said.
