(FixThisNation.com) – The White House has increased its attacks on Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis as the speculations that DeSantis is planning on joining the 2024 presidential race continue growing.

Recently, during an appearance in Iowa, DeSantis touted his successes in Florida and said that his state is “where woke goes to die.” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked to reply to these remarks in the briefing room on Friday.

In response, she said that “extreme Republicans, these MAGA Republicans” when they disagree on a topic instead of focusing on policy and having a good-faith conversation, instead they turn into conversations about “woke.” She continued by stating that this results in hate and a “despicable policy” which is not what will allow the country to move forward.

Jean-Pierre further added that DeSantis is not motivated by “protecting freedoms” but instead he is choosing to focus on “attacking” children and their parents for their views on how they want to live their lives. She added that this is “just hate” and “it is shameful.”

Bryan Griffin, DeSantis’ press secretary, responded to these remarks through a tweet writing that the policies that Jean-Pierre described as “despicable” include “No porn in schools, Preserving the innocence of children, [and] Keeping public education free from sexual content, radical gender ideology, and racial discrimination.”

This is not the first time that Jean-Pierre has attacked DeSantis on policy issues, having previously blasted him for his stance on illegal immigration.
