Former President Donald Trump blasted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ahead of his presidential campaign launch, saying he is doomed to fail.
Trump said DeSantis would fail in the general election after voting to overhaul entitlement programs when he was a congressman.
The former commander in chief made a Truth Social post blasting DeSantis’s support of legislation that took aim at Social Security and Medicare during his time in Congress:
Ron DeSanctus can’t win the General Election (or get the Nomination) because he VOTED TO OBLITERATE SOCIAL SECURITY, EVEN WANTING TO RAISE THE MINIMUM AGE TO 70 (or more!), VOTED TO BADLY WOUND MEDICARE, AND FOUGHT HARD AND VOTED FOR A 23% “TAX ON EVERYTHING” SALES TAX.
Trump said that DeSantis "was, and is, a disciple of horrible RINO Paul Ryan, and others too many to mention."
The former president continued, "he desperately needs a personality transplant, and, to the best of my knowledge, they are not medically available yet."
Earlier in the week, Trump said DeSantis won Florida’s Republican gubernatorial nomination in 2018 with the help of his endorsement. He opined:
Look, Rob DeSanctimonious came to me asking for help. He was losing badly, by 31 points, to popular Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. He was getting ready to drop out of the race – Ran a terrible campaign! Ron told me he had one last chance, my Support & Endorsement, which Putnam, and everyone else, wanted also. I gave it to Ron, and the race was over. In one day, he went from losing badly, to winning by a lot. With 3 LARGE TRUMP RALLIES, he WON THE GENERAL ELECTION in an upset. DISLOYAL!!!
Trump said that DeSantis had "tears in his eyes" when he approached him for an endorsement.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
