US President Donald Trump on Saturday (local time) said that the death of African-American man George Floyd was a "grave tragedy", even as protests continue to rage across the United States.

"The death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy. It should never have happened. It has filled Americans all over the country with horror, anger and grief," Trump said at a press conference at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

He said that his administration will always stand against violence, mayhem and disorder.

"We will stand with the family of George Floyd, with the peaceful protestors, and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety and security," Trump added.

The US President further said that his administration supports the right of peaceful protestors.

The US government has opened a civil rights investigation into the death of Floyd and has asked the Attorney General and the Justice Department to expedite it.
