"Now, a jury at Minnesota discovered former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts at the murder of George Floyd last May," Biden said Tuesday afternoon. "This was a murder at the entire light of day, and it tore the blinders off to the entire world to observe that the systemic racism that the vice president only called, the systemic racism that's a blot on our country's soul, the knee around the neck of justice for Black Americans, deep fear and injury, the pain, the fatigue which Black and Brown Americans encounter each and every day."
"I also talked with George Floyd's family back, a remarkable family of exceptional courage. Nothing could bring their brother, their dad back. However, this may be a giant step ahead of the march toward faith in the usa."

"And now there are people who will want to exploit the raw feelings of the second -- agitators and extremists who don't have any interest in social justice -- that try to perform violence, destroy property, fan the fires of hatred and division, who'll do everything in their power to prevent this nation's march toward racial justice. We can not let them succeed."
The president and the vice president saw the verdict with employees from the dining area, according to a report with a pool of colleagues.

"This really is a day of justice in the usa and your loved ones has been actual leaders in this time where we had you, and also in George's memory and name, we're likely to be sure his legacy is in tact and background will return at now and understand that this inflection second, you had to sacrifice so much as a household also, but we do think with your leadership and the president we've got at the White House, we are going to make something good come from the catastrophe," Harris stated.
Before Tuesday, Biden weighed on his hopes to get a verdict, after talking with Floyd's household at the onset of jury deliberations.
"I am saying the verdict is the ideal verdict, which can be -- I think that it's overwhelming, in my opinion," Biden told reporters at the Oval Office. "I would not say that unless -- the jury was sequestered now rather than hearing me say that."
