Both Mr. de Blasio and Mr. Floyd are exploring runs for mayor in 2013, however the conservation was pretty cordial, as both defended the demonstrators right to protest.
“I deeply respect what folks here are doing and we have to protect their right to do it,” Mr. de Blasio said, a statement that Mr. Floyd agreed with.

Mr. Floyd joked that the two of them carried the protest with them when they traveled home.
