Joe Biden trashed Texas and Mississippi governors for reopening their states and ending mask mandates.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) on Tuesday announced all businesses in the state can reopen 100% and ended the statewide mask mandate.
“So today, I’m issuing a new executive order that rescinds most of the earlier executive orders. Effective next Wednesday, all businesses of any type are allowed to open 100%….also, I am ending the statewide mask mandate,” Abbott said from Lubbock.
“Today’s announcement ensures Texans can tap into their own self reliance to seize the opportunities our state has to offer,” said Abbott as he ended his presser. “God bless the State of Texas.”
Shortly after Abbott’s announcement, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves said that starting Wednesday all county mask mandates will be lifted and all businesses will be able to operate at full capacity.
Joe Biden called Texas and Mississippi decisions to end mask mandates “a big mistake.”
Biden criticized the governors for allowing people to work and feed their families as “Neanderthal thinking.”
