In response to a question, DeSantis said that he was concerned about the 2020 presidential election. He discussed various issues, such as the grants given to the election administration by Facebook, the mail-in ballots law, and the restrictions on third parties. He also criticized the media for how they portrayed the election as perfect.
According to DeSantis, Trump's handling of the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic led to an increase in the number of people who voted through mail-in ballots. He blamed the president for this, and he also criticized the CARES Act, which funds the operation of mail-in ballots. He urged Republican voters to take into account these issues when casting their ballots in the upcoming election.
In general, DeSantis stated that he believed that Trump's unsubstantiated claims of election fraud are not true, and he claimed that Joe Biden was the rightful president. Although he acknowledged the election had some issues, he also emphasized the need for Republicans in the future to fight back against these problems and present a more positive outlook for the country.
