During an interview with Fox News, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) blasted Former Vice President Joe Biden for the escalating border crisis and for placing arbitrary limits on Florida’s monoclonal antibody treatments.
Speaking first about the monoclonal antibody treatments that Biden has decided to limit the supply of to Florida DeSantis said, “This works. And here’s the thing, when it was apparent that it worked, that is when the Biden administration decided to take from Florida and to cut our allotment.”
DeSantis went on to say, “And so what we had to do, and the reason is, is they control all the Regeneron, they have a deal with them, so they dramatically cut our supply. So what we did; we did a deal with GlaxoSmithKline, who also has an effective monoclonal antibody called Sotrovimab. So we now have that in the state of Florida. And our message to Floridians is we want to get you the treatment you need. And Biden didn’t want to give it to you, but I’m going to come hell or high water to do whatever I can to get it for you.”
DeSantis claimed that the Former Vice President, who had fallen up the stairs to Air Force One earlier this year, was “against Florida, because he’s so obsessed with attacking Florida.”

“He does that rather than does his job. But at the end of the day, if there’s a single person in this country who needs this treatment and whose lives could be saved, and they can’t get it because of Biden’s playing politics? You know, how pathetic is that? That is not leadership.”
DeSantis went on to say, “And what we saw was we have people from over 100 nationalities that are making their way to Mexico, making their way to the southern border because Biden’s made it clear, if you just get here, we’ll put you on a bus; we’ll put you on the plane; we’ll send you all over the fruited plain. So we have Americans having a hell of a time getting out of Afghanistan. And yet, if you just come illegally, you basically get put on your way to communities all across the country. It’s a choice that they’re making. This is intentional. And if our lawsuit succeeds, and they have to end catch and release, you know, they may be forced to actually do the right thing for a change.”
