One day after President Joe Biden criticized Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is spiking again in Florida, the governor fired back.
“If you’re coming after the rights of parents in Florida, I’m standing in your way,” DeSantis defiantly responded on Wednesday. “If you’re trying to deny kids a proper in-person education, I’m going to stand in your way and stand up for the kids in Florida. If you’re trying to restrict people and impose mandates and ruin their jobs and livelihood; if you are trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way. I am standing for the people of Florida.”
He finished by saying, “Why don’t you do your job, why don’t you get this border secure? Until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you.”
