Joe Biden Clinches Democratic Nomination for 2020 Presidential Election Against Donald Trump

On Tuesday, Biden delivered a somber speech in Philadelphia in which he called for immediate congressional action on police reform and for unity while expressing understanding over outrage due to the killing of Floyd, an unarmed black man killed last week after a white police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes.

Biden said Floyd's death and the protests that have come afterward are "a wake-up call to the nation" and that the U.S. needs to "respond with action," vowing himself — if elected — to begin working on healing racial inequality and divides across the country.

“No more excuses, no more delays,” he said.

“It’s going to take more than talk," he added. "We’ve had talk before. We’ve had protests before. We’ve got to now vow to make this at least an error of action and reverse the systemic racism with long-overdue concrete changes … It’s going to take the work of a generation.”

Biden is expected to attend Floyd's memorial service in Houston on Monday, according to Forbes.
