Governor Ron DeSantis took aim at the ‘jetsetters in Davos,’ a clear reference to the World Economic Forum (WEF), during his inaugural address on Tuesday.
Watch DeSantis slam the WEF below:
“Fighting for freedom is not always easy because the threats to freedom are more complex and more widespread than they have been in the past,” DeSantis told the crowd. “The threats can come from entrenched bureaucrats in DC, jetsetters in Davos and corporations wielding public power–but fight we must. We embrace our founding creed that our rights are not granted by the courtesy of the state but endowed by the hand of the almighty.”
“We reject the idea that self-government can be subcontracted out to technocratic elites who reduce human beings to mere datapoints,” DeSantis added. “We insist on the restoration of time tested constitutional principles so that government of by and for the people shall not perish from this earth.”
