Florida Governor Ron DeSantis challenged President Joe Biden during a Fox News town hall on Wednesday night, at roughly the same time that Biden had a town hall on CNN, to step up and be on the side of freedom by supporting the Cuban people’s quest for freedom.
“You said, while the people of Cuba are showing incredible courage, the Biden administration said the exact words that I believe are showing cowardice,” Fox News host Sean Hannity said. “What should Joe Biden be doing?”
“Step up and be on the side of freedom,” DeSantis responded. “The Internet access is something we have the capability of doing. We have companies in the U.S. that want to do it, but they need the OK of the federal government. He has it within his authority to do that. He could make it happen.”
“And if he’s willing to do that, I think it will make a positive difference,” he continued. “As it stands now, he’s basically just sitting there doing nothing. He’s leaving these folks out to dry. And what’s going to end up happening, if they’re — they don’t get any type of assistance, the regime will continue to clamp down, and they will eventually stamp this out, and then they will remain even stronger in power. And that will be a huge blow to the cause of freedom.”
