Former vice president Joe Biden criticized the Trump administration for reviewing campus sexual assault guidelines under the Obama administration, so much so that he compared their efforts to emphasize due process to neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia:

We cannot let the kind of things – I’m gonna make an analogy, it’s gonna get me in trouble – we cannot let the kind of talk that occurred down at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville with those Nazis marching [sic]. When we’re silent, we give a rationale, an excuse to people who are the very people we’ve been fighting all along.
