Biden ‘watching closely’ as Floyd murder trial begins

Joe Biden will closely monitor developments in the trial of the police officer charged with murdering George Floyd last year, the US president’s spokeswoman says.

“He certainly will be watching closely, as Americans across the country will be watching,” Jen Psaki says.

“At the time of George Floyd’s death, he talked about this as being an event that really opened up a wound in the American public.”
