On Tuesday the Trump campaign released a statement, accusing its main rival of forming a “Unholy Alliance”, and “Colluding with Biden’s Weaponized DOJ to Stop President Trump and the MAGA Movement”.
“From inception, the DeSantis campaign was doomed. Beginning with a total failure to launch, Ron DeSantis has warmly embraced establishment RINOs and Never Trumpers. Despite millions of dollars spent to promote his candidacy, Ron finds a way to fall to new all-time lows with every coming poll”, the statement starts off.
“Now, amid yet another failed reboot, DeSantis and his establishment handlers have resorted to directly parroting the talking points of radical Leftists”, the statement continues.
When Ron DeSanctimonious was most recently summoned before donors to explain his flailing campaign, his top lieutenants admitted to lighting donor money on fire”, the statement reads.
“Though, even more telling, a top DeSantis fundraiser confessed that their “strategy” relied on endless political prosecutions of President Trump by radical Leftist prosecutors,” according to the statement.
The statement concludes by claiming that “As the DeSantis campaign continues to utterly collapse, Ron has shown he’s willing to take the side of deranged, Marxist prosecutors and the radical Left for any shot at stopping the nose dive that has left him in third place, heading only south.”
DeSantis is currently polling in a distant second and the campaign is reportedly laying off a third of its staff, which is part of what Trump was alluding to. Trump did not go into further detals, however, or provide evidence for the claims made in the statement.
DeSantis has come to the defense of the former President several times during his legal issues.
After Trump’s first indictment by a grand jury in New York on 34 counts of falsifying of business records related to hush money payments he made to former pornstar Stormy Daniels and an ex-Trump Tower doorman, DeSantis declared on Twitter that “The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head,” and was “un-American.”
“The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” he added.
DeSantis again came to the defense of Trump again in June, when he was indicted by a federal grand jury.
“The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society. We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation. Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter?” he asked before promising that “the DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all.”
