TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – After Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced that the State of Florida would not be sending National Guard troops to President Joe Biden’s (D) State of the Union Address in Washington, D.C., liberals on social media pondered what would happen if Biden denied emergency assistance to Florida.
“Some wonder what might happen if DeSantis were to be denied FEMA support following a hurricane,” the Twitter trend description read.
However, what most left-wingers failed to realize is that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) just denied DeSantis emergency assistance following ravaging natural disasters.
“Today, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) received notification from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that the State’s request for Individual Assistance for Floridians impacted by recent tornadoes in Charlotte and Lee counties was denied,” a press release said earlier last month.
“FDEM plans to appeal this decision, due to the amount of destruction and displace residents caused by the tornadoes.”
Lee and Charlotte County – overwhelmingly Republican areas – were denied the assistance from the Biden Administration just a couple weeks ago.
In response to the denial, DeSantis took matters into his own hands, launching a crowd-funded donation portal to assist the victims.
“After meeting with survivors last week, it’s clear they still need our help. We’ve helped community leaders launch this portal to expedite assistance for impacted residents and we’re going to ensure they get help,” DeSantis said.
Biden’s use of National Guard troops at the capital is perceived as a political ploy in response to Canadian Freedom Convoy-inspired trucker convoys that will likely appear in D.C. for the State of the Union Address Tuesday.
