"He's going to make the best decision on whoever he wants to govern with", she said of Biden. One of the officers, Derek Chauvin, appeared to have his knee on Floyd's neck while Floyd said that he could not breath.
"Women of color are under consideration here and they are women from every region of the country so there are so many truly deserving women who are ready to be president", she said on Tuesday.
This came after Klobuchar's latest statement, which demanded police accountability.
Klobuchar's spokeperson responded by saying the incident occurred near the end of her term just before she joined the Senate. "I have not been able to defend myself against attacks about cases that, I think, were unfair, because my focus has been on fairness for George Floyd's memory, for his family and for our community to heal".

The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which has led to raging protests there and elsewhere, is the latest in a string of United States incidents involving unarmed black men, including the shooting of a jogger in Georgia in February and numerous high-profile police killings that gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Before being elected to the Senate in 2006, Klobuchar, who is white, spent eight years as prosecutor for Minnesota's largest county. By the time that the case reached that grand jury, Klobuchar told NBC News, she'd been sworn in as a senator.
Klobuchar's last day as a prosecutor was December 31 of 2006, a Hennepin County prosecutor's office spokesperson told The New York Times. "And I also already said that there are women of color under consideration", he said. It was handled and sent to the grand jury by my successor. Based in Austin, she covers all things policy and politics with a focus on Tarrant County.
As chief prosecutor for Minnesota's most populous county from 1999 to 2007, Klobuchar declined to bring charges in more than two dozen cases in which people were killed in encounters with police.
"The grand jury is a way of hiding that the prosecutor is not giving the full information of guilt to the grand jury", Tahisha Williams Brewer wrote to Klobuchar.
