Gavin Newsom was fuming when he read the sign hanging in front of a Ron DeSantis press conference

California is a raging dumpster fire under Governor Gavin Newsom’s direction.

Homelessness and crime are skyhigh in cities like San Francisco.

And Gavin Newsom was fuming when he read the sign hanging in front of a Ron DeSantis press conference.

On Monday, DeSantis held a press conference in Miami where he discussed the importance of continuing to fight for freedom and small government in Florida.

DeSantis said paying down the state’s debt remains one of his top priorities.

“I’d like to point out that you look at what’s going on in Washington with all the amount of debt that they’re racking up, you know, we’ve paid down 25 percent of Florida’s debt just in the last five years,” DeSantis said. “So our debt is going down, it’s going up federally, and your share of the national debt as a US citizen is over $100,000 per American, your share of Florida’s debt as a Florida resident is about $600.”

Standing behind a sign that said, “Don’t allow Florida to become San Francisco,” DeSantis promised to keep California’s left-wing policies far away from the Sunshine State.

“I mean, you look at places like San Francisco, where you can rob the stores blind, and they don’t do anything,” DeSantis said. “I’ve met people who’ve moved to Miami Beach from San Francisco who had their homes broken into, and the perpetrators weren’t prosecuted, even though they were caught, they weren’t prosecuted,” he continued. “How’s this supposed to be happening?”

“People are, sometimes when they’re charged with crimes, they just get released back onto the street,” DeSantis said, before adding that “it’s like a revolving door and that causes the quality of life to collapse.”

He said under his watch, Florida will never adopt the same laws and regulations as California.

“Not on our watch,” DeSantis vowed. “We’re not going to let that happen,” he continued. “We’re gonna have protection for people.”

DeSantis said he planned on working with members of the state legislature to “find ways to keep the streets clean and communities safe.”

“That will require at least some of the following measures,” DeSantis said. “We need to prohibit camping on all city streets, sidewalks, and parks, we just can’t live like that in the state of Florida.”

However, DeSantis made it clear that he is not declaring war on the homeless population.

Instead, DeSantis said he is “open to providing financial support to communities for things like sheltering and mental health.”

“We want to [offer] support,” DeSantis continued. “It’s got to be done in ways focused primarily on ensuring public order, ensuring quality of life for residents, ensuring that people’s property values are maintained.”

As long as DeSantis is Governor, Floridians can rest assured that California’s left-wing policies will not be adopted in the Sunshine State.

“We’re not going to let any city turn into a San Francisco,” DeSantis vowed. “We don’t want homelessness to become an issue in everyday life.”
