President Joe Biden Tuesday night addressed the nation following the guilty verdicts in the Dereck Chauvin Trial:

“We have to, we have to look as we did for those nine minutes and 29 seconds. We have to listen, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe. Those are George Floyd’s last words. We can’t let those words die with him.   We have to keep hearing those words.”

President Biden says George Floyd’s name is known around the world:

“It was a murder in the full light of day and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see, the systemic racism the Vice President just referred to that systematic racism is a stain on our nation’s soul.”

President Biden says we can all learn from this case and change the course of history:

“The murder of George Floyd launched a summer of protest, we hadn’t seen since the Civil Rights era in the ’60s. Protests that unified people of every race and generation — in peace and with purpose — to say enough….enough. Enough of these senseless killings.”

President Biden says while Chauvin was found guilty:

“Nothing can ever bring their brother, their father back — but this can be a giant step forward in the march forward for justice in America.”
