The White House has responded with anger and accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of taking steps "backward" after Disney suspended its vaccine mandate at the company's resort in the state.

Employees at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida are no longer required to be vaccinated against COVID-19—a move that comes after DeSantis signed four bills into law requiring businesses to provide exemptions to vaccine mandates.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki took aim at DeSantis, a Republican, following Disney's decision in comments delivered aboard Air Force One on Monday.

"I think the Disney piece is important to differentiate because, as they're based in Florida and, obviously, the governor there has consistently taken steps to take steps backward, as it relates to fighting the pandemic, not forward," Psaki said.
