Florida Governor has once again made his support for Novak Djokovic to play at the Miami Masters known as he declared him no risk for the country or the state.
Ron DeSantis, the Governor of Florida and one of the most prominent faces of the Republican Party has criticized Joe Bidden for his policies that will keep Novak Djokovic from playing at the Miami Masters. Djokovic most likely won't play in Miami as all ways for him to play were rejected and the Governor is not happy with it.
He solely blames the president for the situation:
“The only thing keeping Novak Djokovic from participating in the Miami Open tennis tournament is President Biden’s misguided and unscientific COVID-19 vaccination requirement for foreigner travelers. Mr. President – lift your restrictions and let him compete.”

"Djokovic has already had Covid. You know, there's something called natural immunity, which the CDC didn't want to recognize, but we all know is a fact of life. And so he poses zero risk to the United States, zero risk to the state of Florida, and zero risk to Miami. So he should be allowed to compete."
"Now, I would run a boat from the Bahamas here for him. I would do that 100%. But... But I think his people are looking at it, and I'm not sure that's the way they want to come into the country, which I understand. I think it'd be a great moment, but you know, nevertheless."
