The 79-year-old president had to scrap a planned trip to Pennsylvania to talk about police funding and gun violence. He had planned to head to Florida on Monday, setting up a possible confrontation with Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential 2024 Republican rival.

“Folks, I’m doing great,” Biden tweeted. “Thanks for your concern.”
Biden said he called some of the elected officials who were going to be on hand for his remarks Thursday, in addition to his “Scranton cousins!”
“Keeping busy!” he said, above a picture of him working happily at his desk.
