Biden says 'image of America' at stake over Tyre Nichols case.

U.S. President Joe Biden said on Friday (January 27) he'll make a case to Congress to pass the George Floyd Act, following outrage over the death of Tyre Nichols while in police custody.

Also on Friday, White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that the White House has been in coordination with relevant agencies to ensure that they are prepared if protests in Memphis turn violent.
