Awesome governor. This is why Americans in the oppressive Blue states are fleeing to the free Red states. Expect the media to relentlessly smear Governor DeSantis (as they have for months) to take down President Trump in Florida.
Ron DeSantis: We Will Never Lock Down Again
By Daily Wire, September 1, 2020
Former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would lock down America again if he were to win the November election, but Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said his state will not shut down again.
Speaking with reporters while visiting Central Florida, DeSantis cited his state’s steep drop in COVID-19 hospitalizations as justifying his position on lockdowns.
“The number of COVID positive patients that are currently hospitalized is down nearly 60 percent statewide from our July peek,” DeSantis said. “We will never do any of these lockdowns again, and I hear people say they’ll shut down the country, and honestly I cringe.”
The governor’s declaration comes weeks after former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would institute a national shutdown if he were elected president in November.
“If you’re sworn in come January and we have coronavirus and the flu combining—which many scientists have said is a real possibility—would you be prepared to shut this country down again?” ABC News host David Muir asked Biden.
“I would be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus. That is the fundamental flaw of this administration’s thinking, to begin with,” Biden said. “In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing and people employed, you have to fix the virus. You have to deal with the virus.”
“So, if the scientists say, ‘shut it down’?” Muir asked.
