Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, said that he will meet the George Floyd family in Houston, Texas, on Monday.

Biden is expected to offer his condolences to the Floyd family and to send a video message to those attending his funeral in Houston, which will take place on Tuesday.

Biden will not attend the family funeral service to avoid any embarrassment for Floyd’s family members, his aides said.

Biden had criticized US President Donald Trump for his handling of the protests that erupted in the country after the killing of the brown citizen George Floyd at the hands of the police in the state of Minnesota.
