DeSantis Fires Back at Biden: Until Border is Secured, ‘I Don’t Want to Hear a Blip About COVID From You’
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) fired back at Joe Biden telling him to “stay out of the way” from his lockdown plans, pointing out hundreds of thousands of potentially COVID-infected illegal aliens are streaming into the country due to Biden’s open border policy.
During a press conference Wednesday in Panama City, DeSantis warned Biden that he has no businesses lecturing about COVID when he opened up the southern border to allow hundreds of thousands of COVID-positive illegal immigrants into America.
“Joe Biden is suggesting if you don’t do lock down policies, you should quote, ‘get out of the way’…if you’re coming after the rights of parents in Florida, I’m standing in your way,” DeSantis said before receiving applause from residents and local leaders.
Gov. DeSantis takes a massive wrecking ball to Biden’s absurd criticism on his handling of COVID.

“If you’re trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way and I’m standing for the people of Florida.”
“He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide open southern border,” DeSantis continued. “You have hundreds of thousands of people pouring across – and it’s not just from Mexico – you have over 100 different countries where people are pouring through. So, he’s not shutting down the virus, he’s helping to facilitate it in our country.”
DeSantis also said that Florida will not enforce vaccine mandates on its citizens.
“We said from the beginning, we’re going to make it available for all, but we’re not going to mandate it on anybody. It’s ultimately an individual’s choice to be able to do it,” DeSantis said. “So, why don’t you do your job (Biden), why don’t you get that border secure and until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you.”
