After Trump Suddenly Goes After DeSantis – The Florida Governor Issues a Classy Response for Veterans Day

What’s Happening:

Donald Trump is have a string of bad days. The media, and many conservatives, blame him for some of the GOP’s losses this week. The weaker midterm results have forced many to reconsider a possible 2024 comeback for Trump.

All eyes are on Ron DeSantis, who scored massive victories this election cycle for Florida. Trump, apparently upset that DeSantis is getting attention, fired an unprovoked attack against his former buddy.

From Daily Wire:

Former President Donald Trump (R) launched an attack on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) Thursday evening for the way that the governor handled the coronavirus pandemic…

Trump continued by saying that DeSantis was “desperate” in 2017 and that DeSantis “had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win.”

It seems the former president is inventing accusations against DeSantis. Florida was known for staying open during the pandemic, regardless of what Trump says. And the Florida governor weathered intense criticism during COVID and came out victorious.

Trump also seems to forget that DeSantis secured his re-election thanks to tireless work, including his Hurricane Ian response (which Trump had nothing to do with). But how did DeSantis respond to this attack? The best way possible.

From Twitter:

Happy Veterans Day! Our veterans have made countless sacrifices to protect our freedoms.

In Florida, we are working hard to ensure they have the resources and support they need to be successful and take care of their families.

Talk about class. While Trump is grumbling about grievances from two years ago, DeSantis is taking the high road. He took the opportunity to wish everyone a happy Veterans Day. And he talked about how Florida was looking after its veterans.

DeSantis didn’t stoop to any kind of petty bickering with Trump. This appears to be a strategic move by DeSantis. In recent weeks, Trump has become increasingly critical of DeSantis, even coming up with a weak nickname for him.

Yet DeSantis has all but ignored him, focusing on his campaign and leading his state. And the results are obvious. DeSantis helped score massive victories for Florida Republicans. They won so many races, there isn’t a single Democrat holding statewide office.

Meanwhile, many of Trump’s candidates lost races they should have easily won. Many believe Trump’s involvement in the midterms cost Republicans a red wave. With Biden and Democrats failing so badly, Trump’s meddling appeared to only ruin Republicans’ chances.

Maybe the former president should find someone else to ridicule.

Key Takeaways:

  • Donald Trump attacked Ron DeSantis, criticizing him over his COVID response.
  • DeSantis did not issue a response, instead posting a Veterans Day message.
  • It appears the focus is shifting from Trump to DeSantis, post-midterms.
