As Trump Attacks, DeSantis Touts ‘Courage’ To Buck ‘Lockdowners’ in New Book
Philip Wegmann, Real Clear Politics
DeSantis writes (in “The Courage to Be Free”) that Florida became “a citadel of freedom”
during the pandemic by “cutting against the grain of elite and media opinion” and “bucking the experts,” including those who led the COVID task force in the Trump White House. As he explores his own bid for the presidency, a contest that would necessarily pit him against the former president, the book brings that implicit contrast into sharp relief.
