DeSantis says you’re more likely to get SHOT in Chicago than get a good education

Date:

Ron DeSantis contrasts his education-related policies in Florida with those of other jurisdictions, saying liberal enclaves have more crime than educational excellence.

The Florida governor, in his first remarks since announcing his 2024 presidential campaign, said children are more likely to be shot than get a good education in Chicago and opposed “the introduction of a gender ideology in primary school”.

He also slammed critics who say he enacted a book ban in Florida, saying it was a “hoax” made up by liberals.

The 2024 nominee praised its policies that allow for curriculum transparency so parents can challenge what is being taught or given to their children in Florida public schools.

“Part of parenting rights means you have the right as a parent to transparency of the curriculum, you have the right to know what’s being taught in your children’s school,” DeSantis said. “And if there are any materials that are age inappropriate or violate Florida standards, you have the right to report that now.”

DeSantis has railed against those who want to keep what he claims are “pornographic” books in schools where children might see age-inappropriate content.

He also praised its policies ending lockdowns and resuming in-person classes sooner than other states, attributing this to Florida’s educational excellence compared to more liberal states.

“Nobody wants to admit they wanted to kick kids out of school for a year and a half because you saw the results,” DeSantis told an audience of parents who are homeschooling their kids. “From 2020 to 2022, people have totally disappeared from some of these urban school districts across the country.”

‘Chicago – 25,000 fewer students than in 2020; Los Angeles – 43,000 fewer students than in 2020; New York – 50,000 fewer students than in 2020. In Florida, our school enrollment is up.

“You think of a place like Chicago, these kids — you’re more likely to get shot than to get a world-class education in some of these places,” he added.

DeSantis engages in more pointed rhetoric now that he’s a presidential candidate and finally goes all-in against Donald Trump in the days since he officially entered the 2024 Republican presidential primary race.

For months, the Florida governor avoided hitting the ex-president despite a barrage of attacks launched at him from Trump’s side, but is no longer holding back.

sharpest remarks against the man whose approval he once sought.

Speaking to conservative Tennessee radio host Matt Murphy, DeSantis claimed that Trump “is a different guy today” than when he ran for president in 2016.

He also insisted that Trump’s campaign continues to show more signs of leaning to the left rather than sticking to conservative values ​​- which he promises not to do as a candidate or as as president.

Following the Governor’s belated and glitch-filled announcement on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk, DeSantis turned to more traditional media sources as part of his post-campaign media launch, such as radio.

Within 24 hours of announcing his candidacy, DeSantis’ campaign raised $8.2 million – eclipsing the $6.3 million Joe Biden raised in the 24 hours of announcing his candidacy. application in 2019.

Donald Trump has raised $9.5 million in the six weeks after announcing his 2024 campaign in mid-November, which DeSantis is on track to beat.

“He seems to be running to the left and I’ve always been someone who’s just been tethered to conservative principles,” DeSantis told Murphy. “So these will be interesting debates to have, but I can tell you that you don’t win nationally by going to the left, you win nationally by championing bold policy. We showed it in Florida. I never watered down anything I did.

“I don’t know what happened to Donald Trump; he’s a different guy now than when he showed up in 2015 and 2016 and I think the direction he’s going with his campaign is the wrong direction,’ DeSantis said.

He also said in a separate interview that Trump’s early COVID-19 policies “destroyed the lives of millions.”

“When he ceded the country to Fauci in March 2020, it destroyed the lives of millions of people,” DeSantis said, referring to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

On Fox News, DeSantis said one of his first-day priorities as president would be to fire Trump’s hand-picked FBI director Christopher Wray.

In a Newsmax interview on Thursday, DeSantis even alleged that Trump leans left on immigration — despite many critics claiming the former president was too tough on illegal immigrants.

“I think some of the things he attacked me on, I was kind of surprised because he’s attacking me from the left, and that really wasn’t the Donald Trump of 2015 and 2016,” he said. DeSantis told Eric Bolling.

“He was a hard charger, leaning on all issues, very edgy on conservative issues – and that was part of the reason he did so well,” the governor added.

“He also strikes me against voting against immigration amnesty,” DeSantis lamented. “There was the Goodlatte to bill in 2018 – and he said it felt like voting against the wall. But that bill was a 2 million person amnesty for illegal aliens, very little money for border security. All the Conservatives opposed it. He supported him as president, which upset a lot of us.

“But hitting me for taking the America First position, I just think it’s a bit strange. I don’t know what his strategy is, but I think he’s taking a little different positions from four or five years ago.

Notably, the Florida governor is arguing that he will better deliver on the promises Trump made and failed to deliver during his single presidential term.

“At the end of the day,” DeSantis told Murphy of Trump, “he goes left on a lot of the exercise, he goes left on the culture, he even sided with Disney against Me.”

After officially entering the 2024 race for the White House, DeSantis hits the road next week for a campaign swing in the top three primary contest states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

It’s unclear if his wife and Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis will join him for the swing.

Casey, a former radio journalist, cancer survivor and mother of three, is widely seen as the driving force behind her husband’s rise in national politics.

Despite Trump’s offload on Thursday, DeSantis also hinted that as president he would consider pardoning Trump if he was charged with a crime related to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

“Day one, I will have people coming together and looking at all these cases of people being weaponized or politically targeted and being aggressive in granting pardons,” DeSantis told the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show when was asked to forgive individuals. charged in connection with the January 6 assault.

“We see this in a variety of contexts, some of which you mentioned,” DeSantis said. “It’s part of the FBI chasing parents who go to school board meetings, part of the way they treat a pro-life protester, part of the way they don’t go after people who attack pro -life.”

DeSantis was then asked if he would also consider pardoning Trump if he was indicted.

“I would say that an example of disadvantaged treatment based on politics or militarization would be included in this review, no matter how small or small,” he replied.
