President Trump said he ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI to expedite an investigation into the death of Mr. George Floyd – a handcuffed African-American man who told police he could not breathe and later died in custody.
President Trump said the following:
“At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation as to the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd.”
“I have asked for this investigation to be expedited and greatly appreciate all of the work done by local law enforcement.”
“My heart goes out to George’s family and friends. Justice will be served!”
