Ron DeSantis isn’t going to let a moment slip by where he can target Donald Trump. Florida Governor and Republican presidential candidate has taken a jibe on the former president during his time in New Hampshire beside Governor Chris Sununu.
It’s worth noting that Ron is in a distant second place behind Trump and has a great chance of being the next in command. He and his team are keeping a count of all the false claims by Donald Trump. DeSantis said that Trump is wedded to the teleprompter.
And what Donald Trump does now, he is wedded to the teleprompter. He can’t get off that teleprompter, any time he does, he says things like ‘Don’t vote.’ He’s telling people not to vote like we have all the votes we need. Really? Wait a minute, you lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016. You don’t have all the votes you need.
Ron DeSantis was flanked by a big crowd of excited supporters cheering him the entire time as he filed for the New Hampshire primary.

Ron talked about how Trump is asking his people to avoid voting. DeSantis reminds Trump that he lost the popularity vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump has had support from many people, but there are people who oppose him, and Ron DeSantis is one such individual.
And so I think that it’s just shown this is a different Donald Trump in 2015 and 16. Lost the zip on his fastball, has a sense of entitlement — all this stuff — doesn’t think he has to go through and earn it like other candidates. And that’s just not going to fly in Iowa and New Hampshire. And that’s why, you know, how this came to be with Iowa and New Hampshire along the way, I don’t know. But I’ll tell you, just having been here, I’m glad that it works this way because I do think you’ve got to earn it. I think the voters expect that. That’s the first thing. Second thing is, I think Chris has said and I’ve said, we need a candidate that can win the general election. There’s too many people that just are not going to vote for Trump at this point, is my view and I think Chris’ as well. But you have another wrinkle now with RFK Jr. as a third party, RFK Jr. will be a vessel for anti-lockdown and anti-Fauci voters if Trump is the nominee. If I’m the nominee, they all go to me because I stood up against Fauci, I’m going to clean out CDC and all those. It’s a big part of my platform. With Trump though, he he created Fauci, he elevated Fauci, he never fired him. He said that he did everything right during Covid, claims he saved 100 million lives, you know, with the mRNA vaccine and all this stuff. And I think those voters who are understandably still very frustrated with how this federal government handled Covid, and the lies that were told and all the mistakes that were made with no accountability, they’re going to want a vessel for that. And I think they may default to Kennedy. So I think he will hurt Trump way more than he would hurt any other candidate. And that makes it even a tougher uphill battle.

Mediaite reports that Donald Trump has avoided attending the Republican primary debates and has talked about having a busy schedule. He has four indictment cases against him and they have taken his time. It needs to be seen if Trump will take out time from his campaign rally and address these claims or comment his own about the statement by Ron DeSantis.
