The family of George Floyd spoke to both President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden this week following his death in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Speaking to MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, George’s brother, Philonise Floyd, said his conversation with Trump was “so fast.”
“He didn’t give me an opportunity to even speak,” he said. “It was hard. I was trying to talk to him, but he just kept like pushing me off, like ‘I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about’. And I just told him, I want justice. I said that I couldn’t believe that they committed a modern day lynching in broad daylight.”
Philonise Floyd said he asked Biden to get justice for his brother.
“I asked Vice President Biden — I never had to beg a man before – but I asked him, could he please, please get justice for my brother,” he said.
“I do not want to see him on a shirt just like the other guys. Nobody deserved that. Black folk don’t deserve that. We’re all dying,” Philonise Floyd said.
CNN has reached out the family and has not heard back.
