CFO Patronis: America Must Support Israel both Morally & Monetarily


Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement applauding Governor Ron DeSantis’ proposal supporting Israel and sanctioning Iran.

Florida CFO Patronis said, “Until today, the President had been largely unavailable as one of the worst terrorist attacks in world history was taking place to an American ally. Today, the President spoke to the country, and unfortunately, said very little. Biden spent much of his time discussing what his plans were for Congress, when we all know Congress is full of broken people who are completely unserious about the challenges at hand. This wasn’t leadership.  

“It’s at moments like these the Leader of the Free World must provide total moral clarity and outline concrete steps on the actions that our country will take to kill the terrorists who have spilt American blood. I don’t want these wars fought on American soil and we need to kill as many bloodthirsty terrorists as possible, so these soulless beings are quickly deposited to Hell, to burn for all eternity, where they can never threaten an American or Israeli life ever again.

 “In contrast to the vague address of the President, Governor DeSantis outlined very specific steps that the State of Florida will take to support Israel and further sanction Iran. The Governor is correct: not one American dollar should go to these acts of terror and we must support Israel both morally and monetarily. They will need cash to fight, and to rebuild their economy, and at every opportunity the United States must take steps to support our friends, and bankrupt our enemies. Florida will lead in this effort.”
