California will do anything now to keep itself relevant in the news now that the ongoing war isn’t between the states, currently, but between Ukraine. Almost Recalled Governor Gavin Newsom has called out to Disney to stop its relocation to Florida. The move incorporates the Disney Headquarters and over 2,000 employees. Disney is leaving California due to state Covid Policies and the massive amount of taxes corporations have to pay. This is why Elon Musk left.

Disney has done its part if you could call it that when the CEO Bob Chapek called Governor Ron Desantis and discussed the bill. In response, Governor Desantis fired back saying he “would not cow-tow to the woke corporation.” Now Disney has said it will not be giving any money to politicians in Florida in an effort to stay in the middle. When Gavin Newsome heard about this he shared the article and urged Disney to take a harder stance against Florida.

In a tweet, Gov. Newsom urged Disney to remain in California because they represent the values of its workers. Press Secretary for Ron Desantis quickly fired back in an email where she said:

“I do not know if the CEO of Disney agrees with Gov. Newsom’s assertion that ‘the values of [Disney] workers’ include instruction on sexuality and gender theory in grades K-3, I think it’s more likely that most Disney workers, no matter their identity or orientation, support parental rights and child safeguarding. Even if Mr. Chapek wants to take Gov. Newsom up on his offer to bring those 2,000 jobs back to California, that will not change Gov. DeSantis’ position in any way.”
