(RightIsRight.co) – Florida’s Republican Governor, Ron DeSantis, offered a reaction to the news that President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 that many Republicans found hilarious as he bluntly wished Biden to recover from the virus and the U.S. to recover from Biden.
“‘I want to, on behalf of the State of Florida, wish President Biden a speedy recovery from COVID. And I also want to wish the United States of America a speedy recovery from Joe Biden,” DeSantis declared.
He was speaking ahead of a Student Action Summit held in Tampa, Florida, by Turning Point USA.
In the same remarks, Florida’s Governor lambasted President Joe Biden for Biden’s policies in favor of unbridled illegal immigration through the southern border and the failure to resolve the energy security crisis.
“He came in and cranked the printing presses, kneecapped American energy, and he also opened our southern border,” DeSantis stated, as cited by Newsmax.
“And what we’ve seen in the last year and a half is the largest illegal migration into this country in the history of the United States of America. We have record human trafficking, we have record sex trafficking, and we have record drug trafficking,” he elaborated.
The popular Republican also went after his Democrat counterpart in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom, who recently ran political ads in Florida, leading to speculations he is considering running for president in 2024.
Newsom’s ads were met with negativity and ridicule by the DeSantis administration. DeSantis himself, who is presently running for reelection, is deemed the strongest rival to President Donald Trump for the 2024 nomination of the GOP.
DeSantis attacked Newsom, particularly on the issue of the rampant transgenderism in California, which has been countered to some extent in Florida by laws championed by the governor.
“We believe every parent in the state of Florida has a right to send their little kid to elementary school without having radical gender ideology injected into the curriculum,” DeSantis said.
“It is totally inappropriate to take some 6-year-old kid and to say, well, you may have been born a boy, but maybe you’re really a girl. That is wrong and may fly in California, but it does not fly here in the state of Florida,” he emphasized.
