With the COVID-19 pandemic still killing Americans, the murder of George Floyd on Monday, May 25, by Minneapolis police officers has inspired protests in dozens of American cities across the country, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Louisville, Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

But while America is burning from coast to coast, can Joe Biden unite the country?
