DeSantis Unloads on Trump, Says to ‘Stay Tuned’ for 2024 Decision
This week, Florida Governor. Ron DeSantis speaks out strongly about the recent attacks on former President Donald Trump and some of Trump’s decisions.
He also gave what may be his strongest hint to date about his 2024 plans. He told supporters to “stay on top” of whether he intends to challenge Trump for his Republican nomination.
TalkTV’s Pier Morgan Uncensored interviewed DeSantis, who claimed he could beat President Joe Biden by delivering results and not talking tough.
The governor stated that he hires people in government who share the same agenda as us and have the right agenda. “So, the best way to run the government is not daily drama. Focus on the big picture. Put points on the board and that’s what I believe that’s very important.” He seemed to be contrasting his vision with the Trump administration’s.
DeSantis said that Trump’s accusations against him, including the use of the nickname “Ron DeSanctimonious”, and most recently, a suggestion about future accusations, were nothing but “background noise.”
“It is not important for me that I be fighting with people via social media. DeSantis stressed that it doesn’t accomplish anything for the people I represent. “So, we just focus on achieving victories day after day. If I became involved in all of the undertow, then I wouldn’t be able be an effective governor.”
Morgan described it as a “seriess of jabs against Trump,” who would be DeSantis’ biggest GOP rival. The governor also mentioned failures in areas such as the pandemic.
He stated that the COVID approach was different. DeSantis stated, “I would have fired somebody such as Fauci.” “I believe he got too big for his boots, and I think that he did a lot damage.”
Trump responded to some criticisms that his administration was chaotic or marred by infighting with this: “You bring in your own agenda, you’re gone. That’s not going to happen. The way I run the government is not to be distracted by daily drama. Instead, we should focus on the big picture and make points.
DeSantis stated that he is a strong believer in high moral standards when it comes to leaders, even though he declined to comment on possible charges against Trump in relation the Stormy Daniels hush money scandal.
DeSantis stated, “At the end, as a leader you really want people like our founding fathers.” “It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make mistakes in your personal life. But I wonder what kind of character you bring to the table.”
The governor pointed out that Trump’s sudden turn against him occurred right after he was elected by a 19.4 point margin against Democrat politician Charlie Crist.
DeSantis was a bit puzzled by Trump’s slur on him (Ron DeSanctimonious). He said: “I mean, you can call me anything you want, as long as I also call you a winner because that is what we’ve been capable to do in Florida, which is put a lot more points on the board, and really take this state up to the next level.”
