    After Hurricane Idalia, Joe Biden announces that he will go to Florida this Saturday

    US President Joe Biden announced that he will go this Saturday to Florida, a state which was hit hard by Hurricane Idalia this week.

    US President Joe Biden announced this Thursday that he would go to Florida “Saturday morning”, after the devastating passage of Hurricane Idalia, to the lands of one of his most virulent political adversaries, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.

    “I will go to Florida on Saturday morning,” said Joe Biden, during a visit to Washington to the headquarters of the American federal agency responsible for responding to natural disasters.

    The Democratic president, who followed the passage of this hurricane very closely, also spoke again with Ron DeSantis.

    The latter is a candidate for the Republican nomination for the 2024 presidential election, during which Joe Biden (whom Ron DeSantis virulently criticizes at the slightest opportunity) will seek a second term. Any meeting between the two men would therefore be very politically charged.

    In October 2022, the Republican governor and the Democratic president had already seen each other in similar circumstances, when Joe Biden had visited Florida after the passage of another hurricane, Ian.

    Idalia, which caused record high water levels and widespread flooding in Florida, then continued its destructive course on the southeast coast of the United States as a tropical storm.

    It will take time to assess the damage caused by this hurricane, which brought winds of up to 215 km/h and caused waters to rise up to five meters in certain coastal areas.
