Ron DeSantis Threatens to take President Joe Biden's Vaccination Mandate to Court

Bryan Dijkhuizen

On Thursday, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has threatened to sue President Joe Biden in a press conference over the Biden order of a vaccination mandate for businesses.

Since the news arrived at the public a set of Republican governors, including DeSantis, have opposed this order of the President and have said they will not enforce this and if needed take Biden to court.

"I think that the mandate is going to lose in court," DeSantis said during the press conference regarding the federal mandate.

He went on to say that Florida would challenge any such order issued by the Biden administration on the spot and that any cases brought by the state would be heard by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington.

Furthermore, the governor said that Florida has a duty to do whatever is necessary at the state level to safeguard Floridians from requirements that may result in them losing their employment.

DeSantis and Biden have taken diametrically opposed positions on vaccination and mask requirements.

While the president imposed a mask requirement on federal grounds shortly after taking office, DeSantis banned municipal mask regulations in his own state of Florida after entering office.

Following completion of the Office of Management and Budget's assessment of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's original wording of an emergency vaccination rule, the rule is anticipated to become effective.

A total of almost 70 percent of people in the United States have gotten at least one vaccination, with more than 60 percent of all Americans having received both shots.
