Speaking to Expand American Energy forum on Friday, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis said Democrats are poised to re-institute COVID-restrictions following mid-term results.
DeSantis said, “The minute those elections are over, they will impose mandates if they feel the need to do that. They will impose restrictions.”
The Florida Governor went on to say, “And so that will happen. If those types of people are allowed to be put in power, my view on that is, they’ve put Fauci in the witness protection program because he will say, you know, no, you should still wear a mask, and he’s never going to say be normal, go back to normal. So they know that, and they know that that’s not what people want.”
He also said, “There’s nothing wrong if on an individual basis you make a certain calculation. That’s fine. We encourage you to do that. But it’s wrong to mandate people and restrict people, and that will happen. I guarantee you, winter of 2022, any of those folks that are there, you are going to see that happen.
These comments follow his presentation with Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, where they discussed the closing of COVID-19 restrictions.
There is no place in Florida for COVID theater.
