Florida governor Ron DeSantis said the state of Florida wants nothing to do with the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) policies, saying they’re “dead on arrival.”
“I want to have the values not of Davos imposed on us but in places like Destin and Dunedin, where I grew up,” he said.
“Things like the World Economic Forum, those policies are dead on arrival in the state of Florida.”
Right-leaning politicians like DeSantis are increasingly asked what they think about the WEF. Meanwhile, more and more left-leaning leaders seem to be aligned with the globalist organization’s objectives.
Since being elected as Alberta’s new Premier last month, Danielle Smith has snubbed the WEF twice publicly.
“I find it distasteful when billionaires brag about how much control they have over political leaders, as the head of that organization has,” she said, as reported by The Epoch Times.
“I think that that is offensive for people who should be directing government or the people who vote for them.”
Likewise, federal Conservative party leader Pierre Poilievre distanced himself from the WEF while campaigning to be the party’s new leader.
“As Prime Minister, I will ban ministers and other top officials from involvement with the World Economic Forum,” he said in May.
Since former Republican President Donald Trump announced his 2024 Presidential bid, DeSantis has been asked if he’ll launch a campaign to become the next Republican candidate.
He said everyone needs to “chill out” as midterms just finished, and there are still election runoffs.
Two weeks ago, Trump called DeSantis “Ron DeSanctimonious.” Subsequently, DeSantis brushed off Trump’s criticism as “just noise.”
DeSantis also told reporters to “Check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night,” referring to his midterm election victory.
“The fact of the matter is, it was the greatest Republican victory ever in the state of Florida.”
