Biden has a speech coming up —and he’s looking for some extra protection.

The Biden Administration has activated hundreds of National Guard troops to be on the scene for tomorrow night’s State of the Union address —but one governor has made it very clear he will not be sending his National Guard troops.

“Last week, the Biden administration requested the assistance of State National Guards to deploy to Washington, D.C.,” DeSantis posted on Twitter. “I have rejected this request — there will be no @FLGuard sent to D.C. for Biden’s State of the Union.”

While DeSantis has given Biden the red light, troops will still be on the scene.

Four hundred of the guardsmen are local D.C. troops, which have been activated as part of a request from the D.C. Emergency Management Agency to provide traffic control and enhanced security in anticipation of the protests surrounding President Joe Biden’s speech,” according to NBC news.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser warned locals on Twitter that they may see police personnel:

“If you’re out in DC this weekend, you might see @DCGuard1802, @DCPoliceDept & @DC_HSEMA stationed around the city in preparation for the State of the Union address & any potential upcoming demonstrations. We’re grateful for their service and for all they do to protect DC.”
