Joe Biden will travel to Texas to meet with the family of George Floyd to offer condolences before Floyd’s funeral service on Tuesday, the New York Times first reported and Axios has confirmed.

Why it matters: Biden's visit follows more than a week of massive protests across the United States against police violence and systemic racism.

  • Biden is not expected to attend Floyd's funeral because of concerns about creating a disruption, though he will offer Floyd's family a video message for the service.
  • Biden spoke with Floyd's family on May 29 by phone. Floyd's brother Philonise told CNN that he "loved" his conversation with Biden and that his phone call with Trump was "brief" and that the president hardly gave him the chance to speak.

The New Yorker's Evan Osnos on how his Biden biography came together

Cover: Simon & Schuster

The New Yorker's Evan Osnos will be out Oct. 27 (maybe sooner for preorders) with "Joe Biden," drawing on big profiles Evan wrote in 2014 and last month + shorter online pieces, all in this inviting frame from the prologue:

The circumstances of a life in full and a country in peril conspired to put Joe Biden at the center of an American reckoning ...
At the very moment that his country was lying spread-eagled before the eyes of the world, Biden had arrived at his season of history.

Joe Biden is seeding his advisory boards and transition team with center-left economists and Black and Hispanic leaders as he prepares to confront income inequality and racial disparities exacerbated by the pandemic.

Why it matters: The Democratic nominee is signaling that if he wins in November, his administration may pivot away from the pro-Wall Street sentiment that pervades not just Trump's White House, but also reigned in Bill Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s administrations.
