Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, has been under pressure from Trump’s son and others to distance himself from the allegations that Manhattan’s socialist district attorney, Alvin Bragg, wanted to charge the former president.
During a news conference on Monday, DeSantis addressed reports of an impending indictment, saying he was aware of the reports but had not seen any “evidence” to back them up.
Predicting the future is impossible under current conditions. Even as crime rates increased, DeSantis did not stop criticizing NYC DA Bragg’s priority efforts. Nonetheless, he did share the news that Bragg had the support of billionaire George Soros. Continuing, he said that the Soros-backed prosecutors were “fundamentally erroneous” because they were “using their position to put a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety.”
DeSantis, though, seemed unfazed, telling reporters that he is concentrating on more “important problems” in Florida.
‘We’re not engaged and we’re not going to be involved,’ DeSantis declared. A part of him didn’t want to be a part of what he termed “some Soros DA’s made-up circus.”
No legislation or resolution that I have proposed has been put up for a vote. Human issues require my attention. Because I just don’t have the mental bandwidth to devote to such insignificant matters, we won’t even go there. But Donald Trump Jr. wasn’t convinced, and he expressed “extreme anxiety” that Democrats would use the legislation as a weapon against his father in 2024 if he ran for office.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was the target of his criticism. A “contrived spectacle and not a serious worry,” according to DeSantis, are the Democratic Party’s legal efforts to penalize President Trump.
To paraphrase what he said: “Now we know why he didn’t say anything all weekend. He went on to brand DeSantis a “100% Controlled Opposition” because he is “totally controlled by Karl Rove, Paul Ryan, and his huge contributors,” according to Trump senior.
There have been several critics of the governor, including:
On Monday, Trump claimed on Truth Social that District Attorney Alvin Bragg had received over $1 million in funding from George Soros, a radical leftist who is an enemy of Trump. He flatly denied any wrongdoing and brushed off any accusations.
Also, Bragg’s ties to the Clinton campaign go deep. In his continuation, he said, “Even Democrats don’t like what’s going on with the Manhattan D.A., so Republicans and Conservatives are closer together than they have been in a long time.”
“This is the next chapter in the greatest witch hunt in history,” one witness said. Donald Trump also made the following remark.
On Monday after DeSantis’ answer, Trump sent a tweet on Truth Social:
It is possible that female students and other “underage” persons would unfairly criticize Ron DeSanctimonious as he ages, becomes more accomplished, and gains more notoriety. I do not doubt that he, like me, would seek out and defend the misfits in society.
