Fresh off a bungled campaign launch, newly minted 2024 presidential candidate Ron DeSantis is making the media rounds — and throwing jabs at Republican frontrunner Donald Trump

During a Thursday interview with Glenn Beck, DeSantis accused Trump of having “destroyed millions of people’s lives” during the Covid-19 pandemic by “turning the country over to Fauci.”

DeSantis did not acknowledge the more-than 1.1 million American who have actually died from Covid, a number that would have undoubtedly been far greater if preventative measures weren’t put into place. Despite DeSantis’ claims that Florida’s anti-lockdown policies were successful in combating Covid, the state still experienced high Covid mortality rates compared to the rest of the nation.
