Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has had enough of the Biden Administration singling out Floridians over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic. DeSantis unloaded on the President and his administration during a press conference today —excerpts below.
“Joe Biden has taken to himself to single out Florida over COVID. This is a guy who ran for President saying he was going to “shut down the virus.” And what has he done? He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide-open southern border. You have hundreds of thousands of people pouring across every month.”
“And it’s not just from Mexico – in fact it’s rarely from Mexico. You have over one hundred different countries where people are pouring through – not only are they letting them through, they’re then farming them out all across our communities across this country…putting them on planes…putting them on buses. You think they are worried about COVID for that? Of course not. So he’s facilitating. Who knows what new variants are out there but I can tell you whatever variants are around the world, they’re coming across that southern border.”
“And what is his big solution? His solution…he wants to have the government force kindergarteners to wear masks in school. He doesn’t believe the parents should have a say in that. He thinks that should be a decision for the government. Well I can tell ya in Florida, parents are going to be the ones in charge of that decision.”
