Protesters were heard shouting “shame on you” and “you’re lying to the public.”

Governor DeSantis waited while protesters were moved outside.

“This is why we will not be defunding the police, so don’t you worry about that, we will be supporting our many men and women in law enforcement,” said the Governor.

Protestors could be heard banging on the windows outside as the press briefing continued.
