According to Jen Psaki, White House press secretary, President Joe Biden does not plan to travel to South Florida to investigate the deadly condo building collapse. Such a trip would divert resources from ongoing rescue and search operations.
Psaki stated that Biden supports a thorough investigation by federal agencies into the Surfside, Fla. collapse. The Surfside, Fla. collapse left at least 10 dead and more than 150 people still missing. Since the building's collapse last Thursday, work has been ongoing to locate survivors in its rubble.
We want to make sure that the president does not visit our country and take resources from other countries. Pskai stated that we don't want to use resources not needed for the ongoing search-and-rescue operations. We will keep in close contact and communication with the officials on ground.
