FORT MYERS (FCV) – Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced Monday that he has declined President Joe Biden’s (D) request for State National Guard assistance to assist his State of the Union Address in Washington, D.C.
Amid speculation of a similar trucker convoy seen in Canada making its way to America’s capital, the Biden Administration requested National Guard members be deployed in D.C.
The Pentagon will deploy hundreds of troops to the capital for Biden’s speech.
Politicians and officials are concerned of protests against Biden. According to NBC, around 700 troop[s will be deployed to aid local police.
“300 will come from outside the capital,” the National Guard said.
Now, none of them will come from Florida, per DeSantis’ public statement.
DeSantis indicated support for the Canadian trucker protest against tyrannical COVID-19 policies earlier February when he tweeted out a graphic that proclaimed, “Truck Yeah.”
Biden will deliver his State of the Union Address on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
