Speaking in Philadelphia – a city rocked by sometimes violent demonstrations in recent days – the former vice president sought to draw a vivid contrast between himself and Trump, whom he will likely face in the Nov.

He said the killing of George Floyd, the African-American man who died at the hands of Minneapolis police last week, was a "wake-up call" for the nation that must force it to address the stain of systemic racism.
