Florida Governor Ron DeSantis didn’t mince words when commenting on the national outrage after pictures emerged of National Guard members sleeping on the floor of a parking garage; saying they’re “soldiers, not Nancy Pelosi’s servants.”
MILITARY SOURCE IN DC:
“For the last week my battalion has been sleeping on the floor in the Senate cafeteria. Today the Senate kicked us out & moved us to a cold parking garage.

This is how Joe Biden’s America treats solders.”

.@GovRonDeSantis says he ordered the National Guard to come home from the U.S. Capitol because "they're not Nancy Pelosi's servants" and "this is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home."

DeSANTIS on HANNITY: How Florida Handled Coronavirus Without Draconian Lockdown Orders
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke with Sean Hannity Tuesday night on his state’s efforts to protect the elderly during the Coronavirus outbreak; saying local officials were “pro-active” in saving the most vulnerable residents.
“The fatality rate at Florida’s long-term care facilities were drastically lower than New York. Now the state has a plan to safely re-open for business. The predictions for Florida were off the charts. They attacked you… How did you do it?” asked Hannity.
“We really focused. We knew where the threats were. We made sure we had teams going there, trying to work on that. If the virus gets into those facilities, it can run rampant,” said DeSantis.
“It’s a very difficult problem, but we were pro-active,” he added.

“We’re prepared if we see an increase,” DeSantis said. “We’re not closing anything moving forward. We have the tools in place.”
