Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) hailed President Joe Biden during a briefing on the building collapse in Surfside, Florida — acknowledging the president’s support in the wake of the tragedy.
“You know what’s good about this? The way you’re cooperating. We’re letting the nation know we can cooperate,” Biden said to the room after Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava (D) praised DeSantis’ response to the collapse.
“I want to thank you, Governor DeSantis, your team has been amazing, but you personally have been amazing,” Cava said. “You’ve been a steady, calming, reassuring but forceful voice every second of the way.”
Biden cut in before DeSantis could respond, noting the importance of bipartisanship and proving to the nation that leaders can look past political differences when
