Since his election in 2018, Ron DeSantis has been wowing residents of Florida. He has been so successful, that he managed to turn a “swing” state into a solid red one. He won re-election last year by a landslide, which has many wondering what he could do for the entire country.
DeSantis announced his presidential campaign earlier in the summer. He has declared war on the “woke” as Florida governor. And it seems he has plans to do the same across the country if elected president. He recently discussed a horrible policy that kicked many of our soldiers to the curb. But, he’s vowing to correct this foolish error.
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) vowed that, if elected president, he would welcome back all servicemembers who were kicked out of the military under President Joe Biden for refusing to receive the mRNA vaccine for COVID-19.
“We’re going to recognize that this military has made mistakes in recent years,” DeSantis said in a video posted to Twitter on Tuesday. “One of the biggest mistakes they made was driving out perfectly capable servicemembers due to the COVID-19 vax mandate.”
“That mandate was a mistake” and “was not based on scientific data,” according to DeSantis.
“Military personnel who meet standards were, probably, at close to zero risk of significant COVID to begin with,” he said. [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Ron DeSantis promised to welcome back all troops who were kicked out under Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate. The presidential candidate blasted Biden for pushing a mandate that was “not based on scientific data.” DeSantis also said that young men and women who served faced “zero risk” of COVID complications. Meaning, the vaccine mandate was utterly unnecessary and foolish.
DeSantis has long been a challenger of the left’s radical COVID narrative. He previously held a roundtable with leading medical experts who refuted Biden’s demand that all Americans had to get the vaccine. They even asserted that the risks for most far outweighed the benefits.
Yet Biden had no problem demanding our soldiers get a new, experimental, irreversible medical treatment–or get kicked out of the Armed Forces.
At a time when the military is struggling to recruit, this genius was getting rid of good men and women.
DeSantis wants to bring them back. And, if elected president, he would surely sign an executive order that would encourage those troops to return.
