DeSantis however has not stopped doubling down and pointing out that the greatest hypocrisy of Democrat Elites who expelled the migrants from wealthy islands within 48 hours, is the reason DeSantis continues to do so. He also questioned whether Democrat elites expected everyday American communities, to pay the costs and bear the responsibility of welcoming migrants in the face of claims by the wealthy elite that only 50 immigrants were available.
“They said they couldn’t accommodate. … If the wealthiest island, one of the wealthiest in America, can’t accommodate 50, then you’re looking at all these other communities and they’re just supposed to accommodate all this more?” DeSantis asked during Tuesday’s press conference.
“They’ll say like, oh, you know, sending a bus from Texas is a stunt. The biggest stunt is Biden coming in as president and reversing Trump’s policies, just so he could virtue-signal that he was against Trump,”DeSantis spoke highly of Biden whom Crist champions.
“It didn’t matter that the policy had worked. He had to be anti and so that’s why he did it,”DeSantis stated that Florida is ready to host a press conference. “make more of an impact.”
