Former Vice President Joe Biden met with George Floyd protesters in Wilmington, Delaware, while President Donald Trump hid in the White House and attacked protesters and Democrats on Twitter.
Other Democrat run Cities and States should look at the total shutdown of Radical Left Anarchists in Minneapolis last night. The National Guard did a great job, and should be used in other States before it is too late!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2020
Biden released a picture and a statement on Instagram:
We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us. We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us. We are a nation exhausted, but we will not allow our exhaustion to defeat us.
The only way to bear this pain is to turn all that anguish to purpose. And as President, I will help lead this conversation — and more importantly, I will listen, just as I did today visiting the site of last night’s protests in Wilmington.
