President Joe Biden’s remarks on Verdict in Derek Chauvin Trial for Death of George Floyd

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Today, a jury in Minnesota found former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd last May.

United States President Joe Biden.
