As we march steadily towards 2024, Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis as thrown criticism in Trump and Biden’s direction for how they handled the 2020 Covid outbreak. It has been rumored that DeSantis would run for President in 2024. Whether or not that happens, we’ll have to wait and see.
As per NBC, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis previewed a line of attack against both the current U.S. President Joe Biden and the former U.S. President Donald Trump this Friday, deriding the federal response to Covid 19 in the first-in-the-nation presidential caucus state.
“We were right, they were wrong,” DeSantis boasted during what amounted to a stump speech before roughly 700 people in a spacious ballroom at the Rhythm City Casino Resort. In particular, he took aim at Anthony Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who worked under both presidents as a top adviser on Covid and retired at the end of 2022″.
“We refused to let our state descend into some sort of Faucian dystopia,” DeSantis said.
Nearly identical speeches at Friday events in Davenport and Des Moines amounted to the unofficial launch of DeSantis’ presidential campaign in the first-in-the-nation caucus state. His remarks — his first as a likely candidate in Iowa — also included a familiar barrage of attacks on progressives on topics like immigration, education and gender identity, reiterating his view that his state is “where woke goes to die.”
