PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis surprised nearly everyone in the state last Friday when he announced that the state would move into Phase 3 of its reopening.
The move by DeSantis lifted most of the restrictions to fight COVID-19.
The governor’s decision was almost immediately called into question by Mayor Dan Gelber of Miami Beach.
He called it “political decision” that follows President Trump’s example, and he wrote a strong letter to DeSantis asking him to clarify and basically justify his order.
Mayor Gelber joined This Week in South Florida host Michael Putney to discuss.
