[Ed. – Before Biden is even sworn in, there’s trouble in paradise.]
During a Facebook Live video Thursday afternoon, Gov. Tate Reeves said he will not adhere to a national lockdown order if one is issued in the future.
The comment comes as some speculate that President-elect Joe Biden is considering ordering a nationwide six-week lockdown in order to curb the surging number of coronavirus cases across the U.S. when he takes office in January.
“This notion that one of his advisers has said that all we really need is a six-week national lockdown and we can slow down the spread of this virus is totally and completely beyond reasonableness,” Reeves said.
The governor said he feels the economic impact of such a measure would be too detrimental to people in the state as a whole.
