Florida Governor Ron DeSantis(R) responded to rumors of a feud between him and Trump.
DeSantis said the rumors were the corporate media “trying to manufacture” a Trump-DeSantis Feud.
He also added they are doing it to distract from Biden’s failures as President.
The Florida Republican governor argued the insinuation of friction between him and the former president was something of a media creation meant to distract from the struggles of President Joe Biden.
“The corporate media is trying to manufacture something where something doesn’t exist,” he said. “Look, when I ran for governor, he endorsed me when everyone said, don’t do it. And he had my back, and then when he ran for reelection, we had his back in Florida, raised a bunch of money. He had a great margin of victory in Florida. We see eye to eye on all of the big issues.”
“And so, I have zero, zero animosity or anything,” DeSantis added. “And they’re just trying to create divisions. And why are they doing that, Laura? Because they know Biden is failing. He had the worst first year of any president in the United States history since the 1800s. And they know he’s failing on all fronts. So, they’re trying to divert attention away from those failures and trying to create fissures in the Republican Party. That ain’t going to happen.”
45h President Donald Trump has also called the rumors fake news.
Donald Trump says his perceived rift with Gov. Ron DeSantis is “fake news” even as the Republican governor won’t back down over their high-profile split over Covid-19 vaccine boosters.
During an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday night, Trump praised DeSantis and said he continues to have a good relationship with him. His comments come after Trump last week called politicians who refuse to disclose whether they’ve received Covid booster shots “gutless” — as DeSantis has refused to do. DeSantis then shot back last week with criticism over the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic.
“I get along great with Ron,” Trump said. “Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right in front along with Jim Jordan and all of the rest of them.”
