“We’re going to get a lot more done,” he went on to say, referencing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act in Congress, adding “that and a lot more.”

“This is a day of justice in America. We really do believe that with your leadership and the president that we have in the White House that we’re going to make something good come out of this tragedy, OK?” the Vice President added.
