President Biden’s full statement read:
“While the Kenosha ruling will make many Americans angry and concerned, including me, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken. I made the promise to bring Americans together because I believe that what binds us is much greater than what divides us. I know we will not heal our country’s wounds overnight, but I stand firm in my obligation to do everything in my power to ensure that every American is treated equally, with fairness and dignity, by the law.
I urge everyone to express their views peacefully and in accordance with the rule of law. Violence and the destruction of property have no place in our democracy. The White House and federal agencies have been in contact with Governor Evers’ office to prepare for an outcome on this case, and I spoke with the Governor this afternoon and offered assistance and any assistance necessary to maintain public safety .
