It appears that former President Donald Trump is not happy with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ response to the rumors of his potential indictment by a New York grand jury. In a recent post on Truth Social, Trump called on DeSantis to “fight” for him more, suggesting that the governor was not supportive enough.
DeSantis adds: "We won’t be involved in this. I have no interest in getting involved in some type of manufactured circus by some Soros DA…He’s trying to do a political spectacle. He’s trying to virtue signal for his base. I’ve got real issues I got to deal with here in FL." pic.twitter.com/PDbJKEDvea

This comes after Gov. DeSantis broke his silence on the rumors, saying he has “not seen any facts yet, and so I don’t know what’s gonna happen” in the case. He also ridiculed the New York prosecutor as being “Soros-funded” and weaponizing his office “to impose a political agenda.”

Unfortunately, it seems that Gov. DeSantis has failed to recognize the importance of standing up for former President Trump in this case. The former president has been the target of numerous false accusations and fake stories since leaving office, and it is critical that he has support from his own party.
The governor’s comments have been met with criticism from Trump supporters, including Donald Trump Jr., who called DeSantis’ comments “pure weakness” and proof he is “100% controlled opposition.” It is clear that many Republicans are disappointed in the governor’s lack of support for the former president.
It is time for Gov. DeSantis to recognize the importance of standing up for former President Trump in this case. The former president has been a champion of conservative values and policies throughout his time in office, and it is critical that he is supported by his own party. It is time for Gov. DeSantis to show his true colors and stand up for the former president. Anything less would be a disservice to the Republican Party and its values.
