Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Bidenpaid a visit to the site of Saturday night’s protests in Wilmington, Del., amid the fallout from the death of George Floyd, according to an Instagram post.
“We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us. We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us. We are a nation exhausted, but we will not allow our exhaustion to defeat us,” Biden said in a Sunday statement posted to the social media site, accompanied by a photo of him in a mask speaking with a man and child across a line of police tape.
