Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke out this week to blast President Joe Biden for his “lack of leadership” on multiple fronts, such as “gifting” military equipment to terrorists in Afghanistan.
“You look around the country, you look around the world right now,” DeSantis said, according to Florida Politics. “I mean, we have Americans that are just being hung out to dry in Afghanistan. We’ve got billions of dollars of military equipment that’s just basically being gifted to terrorist groups. Things that the taxpayers paid for. Things that our men and women used.”
Not stopping there, DeSantis also touched on the U.S. border with Mexico, where thousands of people have been crossing in the country.
“You look at the border,” DeSantis said. “People just pouring in. They don’t even tell you where they’re bringing these people in. We figured out they dump people in Jacksonville and some of these other places. It’s totally out of control. We’ve never seen anything like what we’re seeing now.”
DeSantis also blasted Biden for his handling of the economy.
“You look at inflation,” he said. “The prices are going out of control, particularly gas prices, that’s putting a huge hamper on working people, having to pay so much when they’re going to get gas.”
DeSantis then lamented the fact that Biden is more worried about forcing children to wear masks than about dealing with pressing issues facing the country.
This comes days after DeSantis announced that he was expanding access to monoclonal antibody treatment sites for Floridians who test positive for COVID-19.
“We are working to raise awareness about monoclonal antibodies because they save lives and reduce severe illness and risk of hospitalization,” DeSantis said. “Today, I am proud to further expand access to treatment with the opening of a monoclonal antibody treatment site in Broward County. We will continue to open more sites to support Floridians’ ability to receive this treatment which has been proven to be safe and effective.”
DeSantis also said this week that America’s enemies will exploit the Biden presidency.
“You know who’s looking at this? China, Russia, North Korea, all of our adversaries are taking the measure of Joe Biden. And they see that this is not somebody who is capable of leading with conviction on the world stage,” DeSantis said. “So they are going to do everything they can, as long as he is President, to take advantage of that. And I think we’re in for a rocky three and a half years, as long as he is President.”
