DeSantis opposed lockdowns in an October speech, according to Florida Politics.“Biden has said if some scientist tells him to shut down he’s going to shut down the country. That would ruin millions of lives. It will cost many lives, I think we’re seeing with some of that. And it’s totally unacceptable from what we know now,” DeSantis said. “We cannot let that happen.”“We’re not going to let them shut our schools. We’re not going to let them close our businesses. We are not going to let them shut down this country,” He added.
