In an interview presented last week on NewsNation’s “The Hill,” which runs weekdays at 5 p.m. ET, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez reacted to the latest news that Disney is pulling the plug on a $1 billion dollar investment in the state of Florida saying, “He [Gov. Ron DeSantis] took an issue that was a winning issue that we all agreed on, which was parental rights for K through third graders, and it looks like now it’s something that’s spite or maybe potentially a personal vendetta.” When asked if he has plans to run for president he said, “I definitely haven’t ruled it out. I am strongly considering it.”

On reaction to the news that Disney is pulling the plug on a $1 billion dollar development in Florida:

“He [Gov. Ron DeSantis] took an issue that was a winning issue that we all agreed on, which was parental rights for K through third graders, and it looks like now it’s something that’s spite or maybe potentially a personal vendetta, which has cost the state now potentially 2,000 jobs and a billion-dollar investment. I mean, that’s the kind of stuff that Joe Biden does, you know. He canceled the Keystone pipeline and other pipelines out of spite that cost Americans 42,000 jobs. And you know, one thing that that he has in common with the president is he hasn’t spent much time in the private sector. And I wonder if that influences his thinking on some of this stuff.”

On whether he plans to run for president:

“Oh, I definitely haven’t ruled it out. I am strongly considering it.”

“I need to make a decision soon because as your panel I’m sure know, the debates are coming up quick on August 20th and so for someone like me, as you said, has ascended quickly, but is still relatively unknown nationally, you have to be on the debate stage to tell your story.”
