DeSantis Swipes At Trump, Suggests Former Prez To Blame For Mediocre Midterms
Ron DeSantis has responded to attacks from 45th President Donald Trump by telling people to “check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night,” adding that he is taking “incoming fire” because he is “leading.”
DeSantis refused to answer the question directly, instead pointing to the attacks he receives “particularly by corporate media” outlets, when he is “leading” and getting things done. “You take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it,” he said. “I don’t think any governor got attacked more, particularly by corporate media, than me, over my four year term.”
He said that any such attacks on him were “just noise,” and that if you’re “delivering results for people” then “none of that stuff matters.”
“We’ve focused on results and leadership and at the end of the day, I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night. The fact of the matter is it was the greatest Republican victory in the history of the state of Florida.”
While DeSantis pointed to the Republican “victory” in Florida as evidence of his success, Trump previously highlighted that in the 2020 presidential elections, he received 1.1 million more votes as president thatn DeSantis did in his re-election campaign for governor.
