President Biden paused at the beginning of a speech Tuesday to make sure two young girls would get ice cream.

During a speech in Tulsa, Okla., Biden stopped to attend to two young girls in the audience before returning to the podium to joke about the interaction.

“I just had to make sure that two girls got ice cream when this is over,” Biden told the audience. 

“Almost 5 years old coming to hear a president speak. My lord. In my faith we call that purgatory,” Biden added. 

Biden was in Tulsa to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the city’s 1921 race massacre, where 300 black people died and their businesses were burned to the ground. He unveiled a plan to advance racial equity in the country.
