The country was thrown into chaos when Donald Trump revealed New York’s far-left district attorney had plans to indict him. The radical leftists that run Manhattan’s DA office are trying to convict Trump over rumors and lies related to the debunked Stormy Daniels story.
Republicans are mobilizing against this obvious attempt at stealing the 2024 Election. House Republicans have slammed the DA’s office, demanding documents and records that back their wild accusations. And now, one of the 2024 frontrunners is weighing into the controversy.
Some asked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, if he would cooperate with leftist New Yorkers, should they come to extradite Trump from his state. Despite being Trump’s rival–and target of constant abuse–this is what he said.
During a press briefing on central digital bank currency, DeSantis was asked what his “thoughts are on the rumored Trump indictment. And if you have any role in it, if charges are brought on him, will you have any role in extradition to New York?” […]
“…But I do know this, the Manhattan district attorney, is a Soros-funded prosecutor.” […]
“We are not involved in this, we won’t be involved in this. I have no interest in getting involved in some type of manufactured circus by some Soros DA, okay. He’s trying to do a political spectacle. He’s trying to virtue signal for his base.” [Source: The Post Millennial]
Gov. DeSantis made it very clear that he would not help a Soros-backed DA extradite one of his residents. That means, DeSantis will not help Democrats prosecute Donald Trump, even though he will become his top 2024 rival.
Keep in mind, Donald Trump has been nothing but terrible to DeSantis for months now. DeSantis won a massive re-election victory last year, without Trump’s help. But Trump has not stopped trying to take credit for DeSantis’ success and has spent considerable time lately insulting the man, calling him names and slandering his character.
Despite that, DeSantis refuses to insult Trump back. He appears to be taking the high road over the current controversy, refusing to help Democrats wrongly indict the former president.
DeSantis doesn’t have to do that. If Trump is convicted, it clears the way for him to win the 2024 GOP primary, perhaps the White House. Trump is a scandal magnet. Whether real or fake, Trump can’t go very long before something shocking comes out about him. On top of that, Trump does himself no favors by attacking everyone, Republicans and Democrats alike.
But despite all this, DeSantis refuses to throw Trump under the bus (as some Republicans have). He defends Trump and refuses to help his enemies.
Which seems more presidential to you?
