On May 25, 2020, Minneapolis police officers killed George Floyd, an African American man, by knelling on his neck. His murder was videotaped, and protests against the police brutality of African Americans and other communities of color took place across the country. President Donald Trump makes a statement after a weekend of protests, some of which involved violence, and he pledges to bring federal resources to stop the unrest.
