The @60Minutes story accusing Governor DeSantis of pay to play regarding vaccine distribution was a terrible political hit job.
@60Minutes has a long history of investigating abuse of power. Unfortunately, it is clear to me the segment on Governor DeSantis was about creating a narrative, not reporting the facts.
We now know that the Mayor of Palm Beach county’s statements would’ve changed the entire narrative about pay to play. It is clear to me it was intentionally left out.
This had to be willful, and I hope people at @60Minutes will make corrections. If not, that’s all you need to know about @60Minutes in 2021.

What a pathetic and weak decision by @MLB to give in to the Radical Left’s false attack on Georgia voting laws!…
@MLB This is an insult to the people of Georgia who are trying to create a robust voting system and maintain integrity at the ballot box.

I promise you this will not go unanswered by legislative bodies and millions of Americans.
@MLB The good people of Georgia, remember President @JoeBiden called your efforts to secure voting ‘Jim Crow’ and supported a boycott of the All-Star game being played in Atlanta.

Georgia voting laws are not Jim Crow, they’re common-sense reforms to ensure robust and legal voting.

Paging Dr. Fauci:

You need to go to the southern border and witness in person the biggest super spreader event in the nation – President @JoeBiden's immigration policies.
@JoeBiden Thousands of migrants from Central America are coming into the country with a 10% COVID-positive rate.

They have 900 people staying in a room built for 80 – overcrowded by more 1,000%!
@JoeBiden Migrants in these facilities are intermingled and on top of each other.

After being around COVID-positives, they are dumped off in Texas and taken to other parts of the country furthering the spread.

In 1994, there was an Assault Weapons Ban – the evidence indicates that there was really no change at all in crime, because the crooks are going to get a gun!

Today at @PalmettoArmory I fired one of the weapons they are trying to ban. #2A
@PalmettoArmory Now, why would anybody need to own an AR-15?

If there is a breakdown of law and order, and that can happen -- we've seen it happen in our major cities.

Remember Hugo, where people were isolated for days? Remember Katrina?
@PalmettoArmory It's not impossible to find yourself in the modern world without any police protection, because that's just the way the times are in which we live in.

We're talking about defunding the police!

Much legitimate concern about the 2022 #WinterOlympics being hosted by communist China, one of the great human rights oppressors in the world.

In my view, there are very few countries on the planet more antagonistic to the Olympic spirit than communist China.
The 1936 Olympics, in many ways, legitimized Hitler’s Germany to the detriment of millions of Jews and others oppressed by the Nazis.

In 2022, it will be the Uighurs and freedom itself oppressed by the Chinese communists.

Not exactly the venue to uphold the Olympic spirit!
Should we make the same mistake again?

We certainly don’t want to penalize U.S. athletes, but we also don’t want to reward the Chinese communists.

Very pleased to hear that the Libyan parliament approved the proposed transitional administration.…
The interim unity government will need to unite a fractured nation to improve the lives of its people, provide essential services, and prepare for national elections in December.
It is imperative that the world community support Libya, because a stable Libya is good for North Africa and the world at large. It is now time for all mercenary forces to withdraw from Libya, give the Libyan people the breathing space to move forward together.

With House passage of the COVID-19 so-called “relief” bill, it now moves forward to President Biden’s desk.

▶️90% of the money does not directly deal with COVID relief.
▶️Only 1% of the money goes to vaccines.
This is the first time we’ve been unable to achieve a bipartisan result when it comes to COVID relief.
This bill provides stimulus payments to illegal immigrants and prisoners. It also has an egregious reparations provision forgiving loans based on race and without any type of means-test.
