Recently, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted Joe Biden at a press conference. This follows the president criticizing DeSantis and his governance in Florida.
Governor DeSantis’ fiery statement slammed Biden’s policies, addressing topics such as the border crisis and the government’s response to COVID-19. Watch the video below.
Initially, DeSantis addresses criticism he has received for refusing to enact restrictive COVID lockdowns in Florida. The governor then calls out the open border policies the Biden administration has embraced, implying those have amplified the transmission of COVID.
You know, Joe Biden has taken to himself to try to single out Florida over COVID. This is a guy who ran for president saying he was going to quote shut down the virus. And what is he done? He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide open southern border. You have hundreds of 1000s of people pouring across every month.
And it’s not just from Mexico. In fact, it’s rarely from Mexico. You have over 100 Different countries where people are pouring through not only are they letting them through there then farming them out all across our communities across this country, putting them on planes, putting them on buses.
You think they’re being 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 around the world, they’re coming across that southern border, and so he’s not shutting down the virus. He’s helping to facilitate it in our country. And what is his big solution? What is he so upset about Florida?
DeSantis then criticizes the federal government’s response to COVID. He touches on mask mandates for children in schools, mandated vaccination by the force of government, and a rejection of science in the Biden administration:
His solution is 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 you in Florida the parents are going to be the ones in charge of that.
One of the major medical people in his administration just recently told parents that they should be wearing masks at home when they’re around their own children. This is insane. Joe Biden also believes that vaccination should be mandated by force of government and that you should have to show vaccination status to be able to participate in society now.
When we said from the beginning, we’re going to make it available for all but we’re not going to mandate it on anybody that’s ultimately an individual’s choice to be able to do it.
Biden he rejects science, because he denies the fact that people that recover from COVID have long lasting immunity. And that’s been proven time and time again, and the data is very clear.
The Florida governor closes the press conference with a final statement, “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!”
