Florida Governor Ron DeSantis punched back at former President Donald Trump after enduring months of attacks from the man he appears increasingly likely to challenge for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
DeSantis made the remarks in an interview with Piers Morgan on Fox Nation’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored” that is set to air later this week.
The remarks from DeSantis come after the former president has launched multiple attacks on the governor since the midterm elections ended, including trying to brand the governor with derogatory names, promoting baseless claims that DeSantis is a groomer, and claiming that Democrat billionaire George Soros endorsed DeSantis.
DeSantis was slammed by the former president on Monday after he spoke out against the prosecution of Trump by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office investigation, calling it “an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office.” DeSantis took a swipe at Trump while making the remarks, saying, “I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair. I just I can’t speak to that.”
