Trump's comments came as Floyd's sister, Bridgett Floyd, urged the police department to take further action while Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey called for criminal charges to be filed. 

"I would like for those officers to be charged with murder because that’s exactly what they did. They murdered my brother; he was crying for help," Bridgett Floyd told NBC's "Today" on Wednesday. 

The case recalls the 2014 death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died in New York City after he was placed in a chokehold by a police officer. Garner was heard in a video of the incident telling police, "I can't breathe," a phrase that became a rallying cry in the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Floyd's death has garnered attention from dozens of activists, politicians and celebrities who expressed outrage over the incident. 

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, called the incident a "horrific killing" and called for a "thorough" FBI investigation.

“Watching his life be taken in the same manner, echoing nearly the same words of Eric Garner more five years ago - ‘I can’t breathe’ - is a tragic reminder that this was not an isolated incident but a part of ingrained systemic cycle of injustice that still exists in this country,” Biden said Wednesday.
