Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) pushed back against President Joe Biden’s criticism of Florida and his handling of the surge in coronavirus cases in recent weeks.
“Biden has taken to himself to try and single out Florida over COVID [Chinese coronavirus],” Desantis said.
DeSantis pointed out that Biden ran on shutting down the virus. Instead, as president he “has imported more virus from around the world by having a wide-open southern border,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis has steadfastly refused to mandate masks or vaccines, or to shut down businesses during the COVID spike, and that’s exactly the way it should be.
I’m standing in your way, and I’m standing for the people of Florida,” DeSantis said, addressing Biden. “Why don’t you do your job? Why don’t you get this border secure, and until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about Covid from you.”
