Bill Pullman, known for his role as the president in the movie ‘Independence Day,’ commended Biden’s use of phrases like ‘there’s nothing that we can’t do when we do it together.’

The video concluded with Biden extending an invitation to the actors to visit the White House, expressing his desire to meet them in person.

President Biden’s unique approach to seeking advice from fictional presidents has sparked interest and curiosity, with many applauding his creative and unconventional method of preparing for the State of the Union address.
