Donald Trump has called George Floyd's tragic death a "shocking sight" as state and local officials condemned the brutal arrest.
On Monday, the 46-year-old died after Officer Derek Chauvin was filmed kneeling on his neck in Minneapolis as the black man shouted, "I can't breathe."
Trump issued his condolences today, saying he had not spoken with the Floyd family yet amid widespread riots over his death in Minnesota.
"I feel very, very badly that's a very shocking sight, "Trump told reporters, adding that he asked Attorney General Barr to take a "very strong look," at it.
When asked whether he thought the cops involved should face charges, he said: "I'm not going to make any comment right now."
The President declined to say on Thursday whether he thought the officers allegedly involved in the incident should be prosecuted but said he felt "very badly" about Floyd's death.
