The United States presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, Joe Biden, has expressed his views on statements made by sitting President Donald Trump, for his threat to send in the military in all cities to quell the growing unrest over the unfair death of American footballer George Floyd.
Today, June 2 in Philadelphia, Biden said Trump would not be allowed to quiet the voice of the American people and therefore, democracy shall prevail.
Since the protest began, hundreds have been injured by tear gas, rubber bullets, and physical force by security personnel.
Biden noted that “for our children, for the very soul of our country, we must defeat him,” and that it can only be done together as Americans.
The protest has now been recorded in 75 cities.
