Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has attributed America’s current challenges to the handling of COVID-19 by the federal government, emphasizing that lockdown measures have contributed significantly.
During a debate, DeSantis, who frequently highlights keeping Florida open during the pandemic, stated that if elected president, he would ensure that the “deep state bureaucrats” would not impose lockdowns.
DeSantis expressed his strong stance on pandemic management, criticizing the handling of the crisis by the government’s top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci. He advocated for a direct approach, suggesting that Fauci should be dismissed rather than coddled, and that open communication should replace his current role.
DeSantis’ comments reflect his position on pandemic policies and his intention to prevent future lockdowns if elected to higher office.
