His emergency management skills have earned him respect even from those who disagree with him politically.
What’s remarkable about DeSantis as a leader is his refusal to back down in the face of criticism and criticism from both ends of the political spectrum.

Perhaps the defining characteristic of DeSantis as a leader is his adherence to law and order. He has made it unequivocally clear that looting will not be tolerated in Florida and that those who do so may face the death penalty. This was met with mixed reactions, as some people saw it as a necessary tough measure while others thought it went too far in punishing poverty-induced desperation.
However, it was exactly the kind of leadership that DeSantis promised when campaigning, and he will stand behind his word. In a moment of political grandstanding, DeSantis has chosen to put Florida’s people over a political agenda. By taking a strong stance against looters and taking a no-nonsense approach to preserving law and order, Governor DeSantis has ensured the foundation of civilization remains in place in Florida.
Ron DeSantis’s tenure in office will be remembered for far more than just his political decisions and stances. He stands out as a leader who puts people and law and order first. His commitment to taking decisive action in times of crisis, his fearlessness in the face of opposition, and his refusal to back down from protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens, make Governor DeSantis an admired leader. He is not only the governor of Florida, but also a role model for what all elected leaders should aspire to.
