"In both clear language and in code, this president has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation," former Vice President Biden said in a speech in Burlington, Iowa, on Wednesday.

The president, who has insisted he is not a racist, said Americans must "condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy" in a speech to the nation on Monday.

On Saturday, a gunman killed 22 people in El Paso, a Texas city on the border with Mexico.

Law enforcement agencies say he was driven by hatred for Hispanics, citing an online manifesto apparently written by the shooter that was rife with anti-immigrant hatred.

In the second mass shooting 13 hours later, a gunman in Dayton, Ohio, fatally shot nine people, including his sister, before he was killed by police.

Trump's rhetoric, including calling Central Americans trying to enter the United States "an invasion," and his hard-line immigration policies have exposed him to condemnation since the El Paso shooting.
