Biden urged the country to come together and address the "national crisis" of police brutality against black people.
"The original sin of the country still stains our nation today," he said. "We need justice for George Floyd."
Biden's response to Floyd's death and the ensuing protests has been markedly different than the president's. Over the past few days, Trump tweeted out a slew of attacks on the protesters, including one message quoting a white police officer who sparked a race riot in the 1960s.
"When the looting starts, the shooting starts," Trump declared in a message that was later flagged by Twitter for violating the platform's policy against content that "glorifies violence." ■
