Biden says he's spoken with DeSantis four or five times, politics is 'irrelevant'
President Joe Biden, asked again on Thursday about his relationship with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), responded by insisting that the two are on good terms and that DeSantis had complimented his response to Hurricane Ian.
The White House said on Monday and Tuesday that the pair had not spoken, which fueled rampant speculation about the reasons why. DeSantis is a rising star in Republican politics and widely seen as a 2024 presidential contender.
