Far from his home state of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis scolded President Biden, not the Democrats who challenged him in next year’s governor race, at a political fundraising event in Nebraska over the weekend.

“If you look at Biden, he always has to talk about Florida, he likes to talk about things we do there,” DeSantis said on Sunday. “If he spent a little less time talking about Florida and more time doing his job as Commander in Chief, we might not have 13 soldiers killed in Afghanistan because of his incompetence and dereliction of duty.

DeSantis was joined by other Republican heavyweights reportedly considering a 2024 presidential run, Senator Ted Cruz and former Vice President Mike Pence.

“My message from Florida is this: When Joe Biden violates the Constitution, when Joe Biden attacks the jobs of Floridians and Americans, when Joe Biden focuses on the livelihood of Florida families and American families, I fight back against him,” he said. DeSantis on Twitter. Governor Pete Ricketts’ annual steak-fry fundraiser on Sunday in Nebraska City, just a few miles from Iowa, the host of the first caucus.

DeSantis’ Nebraska performance is one of at least 12 state trips he’s made since May, basking in his newfound popularity and positioning himself well for a possible run in 2024, should Trump sit out the race.

“If Joe Biden focuses on the livelihood of Florida families and American families, I’ll fight back against him,” DeSantis said in Nebraska over the weekend.

DeSantis claimed that America’s biggest opponents do not fear or respect President Biden.

“They’re looking at what’s happening in China and in Iran and in North Korea and in Moscow,” DeSantis said. “Those countries were afraid of Donald Trump. They don’t fear Joe Biden and they don’t respect Joe Biden.”

The Florida governor has become a darling of the right with his hands-off pandemic approach. Over the summer, he banned mask and vaccine mandates statewide.

DeSantis’ Nebraska performance is one of at least 12 state trips he’s made since May, basking in his newfound popularity and positioning himself well for a possible run in 2024, should Trump sit out the race.

But last week, the Florida governor threw cold water on the idea that he was looking ahead to 2024.

“All speculation about me is purely fabricated,” he said at a news conference in Florida last week. “I’m just doing my job and we work hard… I hear all these things and frankly it’s bullshit.”

DeSantis has traded barbs with the president all summer. Biden said last month that he would sue states that blocked school mask mandates, and DeSantis responded that Biden should be more concerned about the burning of Afghanistan.

“I mean, you have to ask yourself, where are your priorities for being so obsessed with this issue and so obsessed with depriving parents of rights?” he said on Fox News’ Hannity.

“And you’re burning Afghanistan, burning down our border, and destroying so many other things in our country,” he said.

The Florida governor claimed in Nebraska that Biden is “so crazy that in the state of Florida we protect the rights of parents to send their preschoolers to school without having to wear masks for eight hours a day.” That’s something he hates so much. But I think I understand why he’s so concerned about Florida, because we’re leading the way on things that matter and we represent a brick wall when it comes to Biden’s agenda.”

DeSantis did not come up with his own reelection campaign, but predicted that Republicans would “do very well” in 2022 thanks to Biden.

“We’re going to do really well in 2022. Thank you, Biden, for being such a worthless president who woke up half of America.”

DeSantis also hit back at the Biden administration’s sweeping new vaccine mandates, requiring companies with more than 100 employees to require their employees to be vaccinated or tested for Covid-19 once a week.

“I’m fighting back against him,” DeSantis said, nodding at legal action being discussed by Republican governors. “We’re going to be on the front line with a full spectrum response.”

Cruz, R-Texas, in his Nebraska appearance, described the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan as US forces retreated a “disaster.”

“Every enemy of America takes the measure of the man in the Oval Office and everyone, everyone has determined that the president is weak and ineffective,” Cruz said.

Thirteen U.S. servicemen were among the more than 170 killed in a suicide bombing on August 26.

“The chaos that followed and the loss of 13 extraordinary servicemen, including a hero from Nebraska, broke my heart because it never had to happen,” Pence said in his address.

Potential GOP candidates for 2024 are in limbo until Trump makes a formal announcement as to whether he will participate in 2024, although the former president’s most recent hints make a third Trump candidacy more likely.

“I know what I’m going to do, but we’re not allowed to talk about it yet,” Trump said on Saturday during a visit to the New York City Police and Fire Department, according to The New York Post. “But I think you’ll be happy, let me put it this way.”
