Ron DeSantis turned Florida into an “oasis of freedom” during the pandemic.
Joe Biden tried to punish DeSantis by cutting off shipments of monoclonal antibodies and denying federal aid to Florida.
But DeSantis just put the Biden administration on notice about weaponizing FEMA.
June 1 marked the official beginning of “Hurricane Season” in the United States.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting an above average hurricane season, with an estimate of 14 to 21 named storms, three to six of which could be at least Category 3.
Given Florida’s geographic vulnerability to hurricanes, Governor Ron DeSantis has been warning residents in the Sunshine State to get prepared for this year’s season.
DeSantis implemented a tax holiday through June 10 for packages of batteries, radios, generators, and other emergency-related supplies.
DeSantis is also warning Floridians to be prepared for the Biden administration to slow-walk or outright withhold funds in the wake of a hurricane impacting the state.
“Proof will be in the pudding when that comes,” DeSantis said about the Biden administration treating Florida fairly in the event of a natural disaster. “I can tell you that it will definitely be a little bit more of a struggle in terms of that.”
Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time the Biden administration potentially harmed innocent Floridians due to their hatred of Ron DeSantis.
As previously mentioned, after DeSantis refused to bow to Fauci’s COVID tyranny, the Biden administration responded by cutting off shipments of monoclonal antibodies to Florida.
FEMA also denied federal assistance to two Florida counties that were torn apart by destructive tornadoes.
DeSantis noted how the Biden administration swiftly approved federal funds for places like California and New York while at the same time slow-walking Florida’s receipt of any aid or relief.
“That’s just the reality. I think there’s a lot of politics,” DeSantis continued. “But I think that’s unfortunate. That is not the way you do disaster response. I mean, you’ve got to put all that to the side and you’ve got to be willing to step up.”
DeSantis also noted that the skyrocketing inflation and supply chain shortages caused by Joe Biden’s failed Presidency could also be an issue in the face of a natural disaster.
“If you get to a point where one of those gets knocked out by a storm, you want to then go buy another one and it may not be just somewhere on the shelf where they’re going to be able to get it,” DeSantis said.
Fortunately for Floridians, DeSantis’ leadership has provided the state with a budget surplus.
And should a hurricane impact Florida this season, DeSantis says the Florida government will be prepared to mount a quick response and provide aid to help with the recovery effort.
