He couldn’t be more right.
During a recent interview with Fox News, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) celebrated the state of Florida’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and confessed that if he had not pushed back against ridiculous lockdowns, the United States would be looking like Canada right now.
According to Breitbart, DeSantis stated, “You just have so many threats to freedom nowadays, and what we’re doing is we’ve essentially Katy, barred the door to protect Floridians and to protect their freedoms and opportunities.”
“And you see it in a number of different ways. Obviously, we were the leading state fighting against coronavirus lockdowns. We had kids in school, in person, for the entire school year. I believe had Florida not done that, you would not see the other states to have followed — Canada, for example, still locked down. And I think that’s what a lot of these bureaucrats wanted to see in the United States, and we made sure that we led in a different direction. You also look at things going against the Biden administration’s policies. They shut down our cruise industry, with the CDC. They didn’t have authority to do that. All these experts said, ‘Oh, you just have to do whatever the CDC says.’ We sued the CDC in Florida, and we won in federal district court. And now the cruise lines are going to be able to resume sailing this summer.”
