Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vowed to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray if he is elected in the 2024 presidential election. The Republican candidate assured that he would make this decision on his first day in office.
DeSantis explained in an interview with Just the News that if he becomes president, he will make adjustments in the federal government and assured that to do so, it is necessary to "clean house" from the inside of several departments.
The governor explained that the Department of Justice "has become the left's little playpen" and that this is precisely why it is used as a weapon against people who do not support that political position.
DeSantis said finding someone who does not mind being ridiculed or affected by the media was extremely important. "So you have to be somebody who relishes that and knows that when you're getting attacked, that just means you're over the target," he said, highlighting that if it's someone looking to please, it will only fail in the end.

The governor insisted that the Department of Justice and the country's health and science agencies must be reorganized. "We're going to have a reckoning for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)," he said, noting that none of the agencies handled the coronavirus health emergency correctly.
"They were pursuing a political agenda, and the politics and the narrative were more important to them than the evidence and the science," he added.
