BIDEN SPEAKS ON MIAMI APARTMENT COLLAPSE: Pres. Joe Biden is delivering remarks after meeting with families of those who have died in the Miami apartment building collapse. At least 18 people and more than 140 unaccounted for after about 55 of the 136 units were destroyed. Earlier today, Biden received a briefing from local officials on the ground and spoke with first responders to thank them for their service. Biden told the Florida officials, including Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and Gov. Ron DeSantis, that he is looking to ‘pick up 100% of the cost’ of the rescue and recovery efforts from the state and county ‘over the first 30 days’. DeSantis, a staunch ally of former Pres. Trump, told Biden in the roundtable meeting that Biden ‘recognized the severity of this tragedy from day one’ and has been ‘very supportive’ throughout the process.
