"A lot of conversation here in America over last week or two since George Floyd was killed, in Minneapolis, about what does the rule of law mean.

Conversations about violence, about people who are been protesting. Talks about disobedience, discord, disharmony in America. Remember a fundamental fact fundamental truth about being American.

Protest, so long as it's peaceful, not only is it lawful, it's a part of who we are. We've been doing this for hundreds of years. Now we're having a conversations, and we're going to continue to have this conversation about, as a country about all the things we've been talking about for the last four years. Our responsibility to each other ... to treat each other with dignity, with a sense of mutual respect, to be aware of, and sensitive to our own implicit biases, depending on where we were raised, how we were raised, from whence we came.

You are a part of the most respected institution in the United States of America. And you should be proud of that, and you should earn it every day to make sure we retain that trust of our fellow citizens.

Because we come from communities across the nation around the world. We will return to those communities. Those are our teammates, those are our friends. Those are our families. Those are our partners, and they're precious.

We need to maintain their support. We need to maintain their confidence that we know we're doing. We're doing the right thing, and we serve everyone.
We serve the people of the United States, not a party, not one person. We serve each other. We serve the Nation."
