The former US vice president said on CBS Bidenthat it is difficult to grieve, especially in the eyes of the public. Had in speeches Biden previously stressed that Floyd’s death was a wake-up call for the United States. The 46-year-old African American was killed on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by a white policeman who had pressed his knee on the neck of the handcuffed man for minutes. On Monday, thousands of people came to the Fountain of Praise church in Houston, Texas, to bid farewell to Floyd at the coffin, including Mayor Sylvester Turner and governor Greg Abbott. The action against Floyd was a “horrific case of police brutality,” said the Republican politician.

Would also like to Joe Biden a video message for George Floyds Record funeral. He himself will not attend Floyd’s funeral because he doesn’t want the presence of additional security measures to interfere with the funeral, Biden said. The candidate for the presidential race of the Democrats had repeatedly opposed “systematic racism” in the United States pronounced.

Donald Trump is the worst possible person to lead us through this moment.

US president Donald Trump, who will bid for re-election in a duel with Biden in November, has condemned Floyd’s death several times. However, he is accused of not clearly opposing himself racism to position and not show enough understanding for the anger about discrimination and injustice in the country.

George Floyd died on May 25 in a brutal arrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A white police officer had pressed his knee on the neck of Floyd lying on the floor for almost nine minutes – despite all requests from the 46-year-old to let him breathe. Floyd was arrested on suspicion of paying with a false $ 20 bill. Since his death it has been in the United States – and also worldwide – there have been major protests against police violence, racism and discrimination.
