President Trump Meets With Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Highlighting Effective COVID-19 Response…

Earlier today President Trump and members of the COVID-19 task force met with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at the White House.  DeSantis spoke about the actions Florida has taken to help and support the state’s nursing home population.

The approach to protect the vulnerable population by Florida Governor DeSantis contrasts against the approaches taken in New York and New Jersey which were not so effective. Additionally, DeSantis highlights the use of the national guard to assist in testing and mitigation. [Video Below – Transcript to Follow]

        definitely agree…he’s the front runner…said he’s fixing roads as there was little traffic…Great idea…of course SEIU is in the nursing homes so death count can go up but in Florida, most are low floor, open door and window facilities so there more fresh air and sunshine!

        That’s good you moved to FL. from Dodge then voted for DeSantis. Most of them, a specific cabal, whine like hell about taxes, crime, and street urchins, physical decay of MTA, and much more… THEN move to FL. and vote for the likes of Gillum. The JYT map shows we’re they’re concentrated in FL. and how they vote no matter where they’re domiciled: https://www.nytimes.com/elections/results/florida-governor. Gillum was just in the neuze as some may remember – marxist, doper, pervert. I know because I was born and raised in Brooklyn before I left after 39 years. Mind you, this is what we face trying to take back the HOUSE AND SENATE, the latter of which is and has been in Globohomo control for years. Ain’t impressed with Florida electoral mentality. AT. ALL.

        “Highest rate of STDs in country.”

        All this talk by Gov. Cuomo in NY about “contact tracing” with “testing” before is NUTS. The Governor is dreaming of some system like what is used for sexually transmitted diseases.

        Except this would be for the Wuhan virus. So if you test get sick and test postive, everyone you came in contact with would also be quarantined for two weeks. Maybe even if you test “positive”. Then the government could label you an asymptomatic carrier.

        Good luck reopening, or even returning to normal, with a Governor who thinks like that.

        But forcing Nursing Homes not to discriminate against sick people, that is OK. When things go wrong, the State jumps into CYA mode by blaming the Nursing Homes for not providing adequate care.

    Hunter apologized for being wrong about our testing being less per capita than So Korea, but is still making a big deal about our infection rate being higher. Pretty obvious that if the US is testing primarily in high risk areas like nursing homes, and hard hit areas like NY and NJ, it would follow that we would have a higher infection rate.

This man barely beat an unknown mayor who was under active investigation by the FBI for corruption. He has done a number of questionable decisions. Now, he is dragging his feet about opening up the State of Florida, until he gets face time with the Prez.. This guy is not qualified to run a hotdog stand on the side of the road. He is better than Gillum, but that is saying nothing.

          I’ve lived in Florida since 1972. DeSantis gets “face time” with the president any time he wants. He supported him in 2016. Did you miss his campaign ad? DeSantis was touring the state during the campaign to get a handle on the many different demographics, environments and basic needs of our state. He has a law degree, served in the military and in the House. He’s quite capable of running Florida and then some. He closed the state later than most and was hesitant to do so. I can safely say that as well.

            Right he was such a good candidate that he just barely beat Gillum, an unknown in the state, except for the fact that he was under active investigation for corruption by the FBI. DeSantis ran on Trump’s coattails. Then the guy turns into some liberal light governor, a la John McCain, who backs legalizing cannabis, wanted to spend money to somehow save the Everglades, increased the budget and appointed a number of Democrats to his cabinet. He is cast in the mold of John McCain. If you liked McCain, you will like DeSantis.

              You’re comparing DeSantis to McCain? Desperate.
              The vote was close because we have a lot of un-informed voters and Dems in Florida (many are transplants) plus Gillum is Black and was known in Tallahasse (idiots that they are).
              It’s a good thing DeSantis is governor to ALL Floridians, not just you. Some are concerned about the Everglades, and others about legalizing pot. That said, at least his budget increases are not lining his pockets. He’s a Republican. What Republican hasn’t been under investigation for corruption by the corrupters themselves. Move to GA. You’ll love their state income tax.

                First of all, DeSantis was not under investigation, Gillum was. DeSantis had been a member of the US Congress from Florida and should have had significant name recognition. Yet he almost lost to an unknown Governor from Tallahassee who was under investigation for corruption. And, he ran on the coattails of DJT. Voter fraud? There was some, but there shouldn’t have been enough to make a difference. Gillum’s campaigns had deep pockets? So did DeSantis. The media was in the tank for Gillum? Not really. Even in the big Dem counties, the local media was did not push Gillum to any significant degree. What was significant was the fact that of the 13 million + voters in Florida, only 8 million voted for governor. There were right around 9 million registered Democrat and Republican voters in Florida, in 2018 and nearly 3 million NPA voters [independents]. While I do not have a breakdown of which group produced what percentage if the votes, in the general election, 1/3 of the registered voters simply did not vote for any candidate. DeSantis should have swept the contest and won handily. Instead he squeaked by by 0.5 percent. Why vote for a liberal light Republican, when you can vote for the real thing, a Democrat? DeSantis almost lost because voters stayed home. Then when he got elected, he did not disappoint. He pulled a McCain and became a RINO.

Mica’s old Congressional district which was heavily Republican and rather conservative to boot. But, the GOP has always run liberal RINOs for the Governorship of Florida; Bush, Scott and now DeSantis. DeSantis in the WH would be as bad or worse than John McCain as Prez.

My biggest shock was how close an avowed socialist candidate came. I still believe the ballots were stuffed. Comparative totals between Gilliam to RD versus other republican candidates weren’t comparable in select large counties.

Unless you are an “at-risk” person. The virus has already spread far and wide. Much more than official statistics. And yes even among the elderly. The fact that there have only been 1171 deaths when we have such a huge elderly population, shows that even they are not as at risk as the media is portraying. The fact is he CAN andSHOULD open the whole State. The at-risk can shelter themselves just like we do every flu season. The rest of us need to get back to work and living our lives. DeSantis is afraid of his own shadow. And can’t make his own decisions without Trump giving him “cover”. I don’t need any more talk about testing, and other government talking points.

              You can have your opinion about the Governor, but the issue is not him, but his opposition. DeSantis’ executive order has nothing to do with local demo-nazis power grab.

        DeSantis needs to do some kind of EO which supersedes all these little petty tyrants in Florida, like Demmings here in Orlando. To prevent Mayors, etc. from extending the stay home orders. That would be a good first step. Then fully open the beaches, including sunbathing. He hasn’t even done that! Then tell all businesses to get back to work, including Disney and restaurants. To date he’s done a lot of talking, but there’s been no action at all.

          Spot on. If he’s gonna do a whole state stay at home, he needs to do a whole state opening. With Demmings and Dyer here, it won’t mean anything otherwise. Same with those Osceola county putzes.

          All DeSantis has to do to open up the whole state, including Democrat Gold Coast Counties, is to rescind his EO. All the local restrictions depend upon the Governor’s EO. But, that is not going to happen. He has already carved out exceptions for Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

    Really liked this format. Bring in more Red State Govs. who can calmly articulate what they are doing. Gov Desantis, did an excellent job, was ontop of the facts and processes for his state. He helped deflect the snarkiness and hostility that PDJT receives everyday. Desantis was a little uptight and seemed a little aggressive when answering Trump around 14:49, then he got back on track in support of his state and validating the support he’s received from the feds and Trump. Overall excellent job. If you listened carefully the information really showed what a blow-hard, Faux President Cuomo is. His yapping about the need for 30K ventilators was a total red herring, a Leftie diversionary tactic to place blame on Trump when it was all about Cuomo’s own mismanagement. There was no need for 30K ventilators. If you go on a ventilator it means a death sentence, 80% who go on ventilators are in terrible shape and die. Time to hit back at Cuomo, he’s a bum…esp. now learning that he sends these patients over to nursing homes to die. Time he loses his essential job, he needs to be recalled. Let him find his next essential job.

      There was a NY doctor who posted about concerns with treating patients using those ventilators. Had to do with patients exhibiting low oxygen and being careful about not having ventilators turned up too high.

      He seemed advocating for reevaluating treatment protocols and criteria for treatment. Was very concerned for his patients and frustrated with this disease. I think Dr. Sidel or Sidell if I remember name right. He did a YT but I don’t know if it’s still there.

      His take on his experience and thinking was interesting.

I was able to get them in same room back in November, 69years together then and if they have to be there should be together. Stars were in alignment that day as that is difficult to do.

      Similar situation. Mom preceded Dad with Alzheimer’s. When Dad got bad, we found a small 10 patient home that had one room they called the hospice room, where there were two beds, half bath. Mom past two years ago at 99, just after their 76th anniversary. Dad is in late stage Alzheimer’s at 99, but well taken care of at this wonderful home. The workers said they don’t have a job, they have a ministry.

    A number of the things that DeSantis was saying they were doing in Nursing Homes was something a local independent meat production company started in mid-March. They were ahead of the curve in taking measures.

    They are still operating with few problems. I know that Pres. Trump is concerned about keeping food plants operating.

    That John from ABC news is such a liar, he knows the executive order (wish someone on Trump’s team reminded Trump, glad Ron jumbed in) demanded that anyone returning from China had to quarantine 14 days and register with the state. All fights from China were directed to 15 airports for screening, later became 20 airports.

    Anyone returning from Hubei province had a mandatory quarantine under the federal government mostly on milltary bases for 14 days.

    First time in 60 years CDC issued mandatory quarantine. Why doesn’t Trump mention that when he talks about the China ban. He needs better communication team, be on top of this, when lying media these games.

    That was arguably the best or certainly one of the best Oval office press briefings ever. A main reason was watching two strong, experienced, successful and united political leaders working in tandem to deal with the extraordinary and difficult challenges caused by the ChiCom Covid attack.

    Gov. DeSantis’ presentation was very well done and his state has battled the virus in a scientific, rational and effective way. Only a reckless partisan hack and a ChiCom assistant (whether witting or unwitting) would attempt to turn this positive uplifting presentation into a negative. Yahoo’s WH yahoo did his best to disparage the U.S. effort but was knocked down by POTUS and Dr. Birx.

    Gov. DeSantis’ experience on the Hill has paid off. His strength and abilities were clearly evident today. His wise and astute leadership in Florida has turned him into a prime Presidential candidate for 2024. While VP Pence’s efforts on the Task Force have also been impressive, I’m not sure he could effectively handle the rabid MSM alone as well as Ron. But he might surprise.

    Speaking of homes for the elderly, I guess the media only report on how the elderly might be affected if a state opens too soon.
    No widespread reporting on Cooomo sending those infected back to their nursing homes.

    And another veterans home in Masshole where they were left to be infected. 68 now dead, which is the worst in the nation.

    After reading all the comments , all I can say is .. while “ Rome burns, Nero is fiddling “ . I see a lot of defections from the Trump train , or at least , not much enthusiasm to stay on . I’m not one to jump from the frying pan to the fire , but I do see this whole situation becoming very sour very fast . I just received a letter from my archbishop here in So Fla , who is hand in glove with shutdown narrative .. no resumption of devices “ until curve flattens” , no end to social distancing until vaccine . The powers that be are lining up and pushing this narrative , they seem hellbent on making it a reality . The dystopia of tomorrow has arrived . It appears as though Trump and his team either are aware of another event and are biding their time to not fight this battle but keeping powder dry for the bigger one , or we are cooked as a society .
    This much I know , the day they mandate a vaccine to go to church or to travel or to work , it’s time to make serious decisions . None of them will be easy .

    I doubt many governors would have the guts or competence to be in the same room as PT. They hide behind the silicon curtain like scared children or throw themselves on the floor in histrionic hyperventilating hysteria.
