“I am totally willing to wear the criticism as a badge of honor if it means that my state is a state in which every parent has the right to send their kid to in-person instruction,” Gov. DeSantis said in an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
“I don’t seek validation by the media. What I seek is supporting the citizens of my state. Everybody has a right to work and a right to pursue their vocation. Every business has a right to operate. And we’ve done that, we’ve trusted people.”
