Ron DeSantis is proving to be a top contender for the White House in 2024.
As a result, the Florida Governor is constantly attacked by the Left, but he always seems to come out on top.
And now the Biden administration is fuming at Ron DeSantis for this shocking reason.
Hysteria around the delta variant of the coronavirus is at a fever pitch.
After the CDC advised to lift the mask mandates and lockdown orders at the beginning of summer, Americans once again began to reopen their businesses and go on with their daily lives.
But now that the delta variant is causing a minimally small amount of “breakthrough” cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated people, the CDC and the Biden White House are sounding the alarm once again, calling for mask mandates to be reinstated and indoor gatherings to be canceled.
However, Ron DeSantis is not giving in to the Left’s demands.
Earlier this week, White House press Secretary Jen Psaki attacked DeSantis and the state of Florida for rising COVID cases, even though the whole country is seeing an uptick in cases.
She also criticized DeSantis for not requiring masks for children younger than 12.
“So, you know, at a certain point, leaders are going to have to choose whether they’re going to follow public health guidelines or they’re going to follow politics,” Psaki said.
She also encouraged states to allow individual schools to adopt mask mandates, claiming that “is not the current state of play in Florida.”
DeSantis didn’t back down, though, and doubled down on his stance opposing mask mandates.
“I think if the CDC had its way, I think they probably would have kids in masks indefinitely,” DeSantis told Fox News, “Mandating masks for vaccinated people erodes public trust and confidence in the effectiveness of the vaccines.”
DeSantis is simply trying to follow “the science” and do what’s best for his state and citizens.
And the constant attacks on him from the Biden administration are proof the Left is worried about his popularity as we get closer to the next Presidential election.
