DeSantis Labels Trump Criticism 'Background Noise'

 March 23, 2023

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted former President Donald Trump's leadership style, calling his critiques "background noise."

In an interview with Piers Morgan, DeSantis discussed Trump, criticizing his leadership style.

"Morgan previewed his hour-long interview with the popular Florida governor in a New York Post piece on Tuesday, in which he heavily hinted that DeSantis is strongly considering a presidential run," reported Breitbart.

Morgan wrote:

In an exclusive wide-ranging interview with me airing on Fox Nation’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on Thursday, he said “stay tuned” about his widely expected announcement that he’s running for president and declared: I have what it takes to be president and I can beat Biden.

Throughout the interview, DeSantis, who has largely refused to dish on the "civil war" between himself and Trump, finally spoke more on their apparent fallout — something that became even more apparent Monday, after DeSantis told reporters that his administration would not be involved with what he described as a "manufactured circus by some Soros [backed] D.A." That was in reference to the looming Trump arrest at the hands of leftist Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whom DeSantis criticized as a yet another Soros-funded prosecutor who is weaponizing his office to "impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety." However, DeSantis dismissed the entire narrative as a non-issue, triggering disappointment among some conservatives, who expected him to back the former president in the face of injustice.

"Well, there’s a lot of speculation about what the underlying conduct is," DeSantis said when asked about the tone of his porn star remark.

"That is purported to be it, and the reality is that’s just outside my wheelhouse. I mean that’s just not something that I can speak to," DeSantis said, doubling down and reiterating the importance of good character in a presidential candidate.
