The Independent published this video item, entitled “Biden hits out at Ron DeSantis for ‘undermining’ efforts to beat Covid” – below is their description.

Joe Biden seemed to call out Florida governor Ron DeSantis and other high-profile Republican leaders who have moved to block vaccine and mask mandates even as the Delta variant continues to devastate the country.

“Local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic, while their governor picks fights with them and even threatens their salaries or their jobs. Talking about bullying in schools,” Mr Biden said during remarks on Thursday at the White House about the state of the pandemic.

“If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I will use my powers as president to get them out of the way.”
