Florida Governor Ron DeSandis launched a new attack against him Donald Trumphis opponent for the Republican nomination for the 2024 presidential election, at the start of his campaign from Iowa.

The crowd that had gathered was mainly made up of former Trump supporters, who are looking for an alternative, as a series of charges have been brought against the former president.
“We don’t know what’s going to happen with all these cases, so we want to keep our options open,” said Martha Burts, who believes the DeSandis “loves America” and “has the makings of a president.”
Her husband also “does not consider reliable” the polls that show Trump far ahead of him DeSandis. “The election campaign still has a long way to go,” he estimated, as reported by the Athenian-Macedonian News Agency.
Possibly in an attempt to reduce this polling gap, its governor Florida attacked the former president on a range of issues, including immigration, his policies during the covid pandemic and federal spending, saying he had drifted away from conservative principles during his tenure.
“Unfortunately, he’s moved further to the left on some of these issues,” he noted.
Without mentioning the millionaire’s name Republican – in order not to alienate Trump’s large electoral base – o DeSandis he estimated that the country should be ruled by someone “active” who will be able to rule for “two terms”. Trump cannot do that, under the US Constitution, as he has already been president once.
THE Trumpwho according to polls is currently the favorite to win the anointing of Republicanshad recently attacked the 44-year-old DeSandis on how he handled the pandemic in Floridabecause he had resisted federal mandates to wear masks and get vaccinated.
The governor of Florida called his opponent’s criticisms “unreal” and estimated that the Republicans they will support him.

“Hell, his whole family moved to Florida now that I’m governor,” he said. DeSandis.
Trump is a resident Florida since he left him White House and some of his children also live in the state.
