President Biden said:
Let me be blunt. My plan also takes on elected officials in states that are undermining you in these life-saving actions. Right now local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salaries or their jobs. Talk aboutbullyingthe schools.
If they’ll not help, if these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I will use my power as president to get them out of the way. The Department of Education has already begun to take legal action against states undermining protection that local school officials have ordered.
President Biden Is Taking On DeSantis, Abbott, and Other Republican Governors
President Biden is going to use his presidential power to stop COVID spreading Republican governors. The COVID surge is primarily a problem of the unvaccinated in red states that is being fueled by Republican governors who are banning vaccination mandates and masking.
The tone of the speech suggested that Joe Biden is done playing games, and the pandemic politics of DeSantis, Abbott, and other Republicans are going to be stopped.
