‘We Need Real Leadership’: Biden Calls Out Trump For Threatening To Shoot Minneapolis Protesters
Former Vice President Joe Biden addressed the nation on Friday as he called for police reform to root out “systemic racism” in the wake of George Floyd’s killing.
Shortly after speaking with Floyd’s family, Biden spoke to the nation and slammed Donald Trump for pushing for violence against protestors.
“This is no time for incendiary tweets,” Biden said. “It’s no time to encourage violence. This is a national crisis and we need real leadership.”
Biden said the “anger and the exhaustion is undeniable” for Black Americans, and he said police departments must be reformed to end brutality and bigotry.
“We need real police reform that holds bad cops accountable,” he said.
“The original sin of this country still stains our nation today ,” Biden said. “We’re a country with an open wound. None of us any longer can hear the words, ‘I can’t breathe,’ and do nothing.”
