Former vice president Joe Biden is expected to attend the funeral of George Floyd, the black man who was fatally arrested by Minneapolis police.
The lawyer for Floyd’s family said Tuesday that Biden will attend. “And we understand Vice President Biden will be in attendance” at the funeral, said Crump.
The lawyer, Ben Crump, said Floyd’s family will hold the funeral in Houston, Texas, on June 9, after holding memorial services in Minneapolis on Thursday, and another memorial in North Carolina on Saturday.
Biden is the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
A spokesman for Biden’s campaign has not confirmed.
The White House also had no response when asked by a reporter, if Trump would attend.
