Biden has condemned rioters and simply correctly pointed out that many of the protests that we’ve seen, most of the protests that we've seen since the death of George Floyd have been peaceful, so he's made a distinction. He also said that Biden’s speech today was strange, and he specifically criticized him for not naming Antifa.
