June 6, 2020

Former United States Vice President Joe Biden described this Friday as “negligible” that President Donald Trump mentioned Afro-American citizen George Floyd while celebrating May strike dates in the North American country.

In particular, Trump has pointed out that it was “a great day” for Floyd, who hoped he was “looking down” and said that “something great is happening” for the United States.

Floyd’s death by a white Minépolis police officer on May 25 triggered a wave of outrage and mass protests in the United States for the eleventh consecutive year. The mobilizations have also spread to other countries such as Germany, France, Canada, Austria or the United Kingdom.

“George Floyd’s last words -” I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe “- have been repeated in this nation and frankly around the world,” said Biden, as CNN television reports. “I think the President’s trying to put another word in George Floyd’s mouth is despicable,” he said.
