DeSantis Watch Statement on Trump’s Announcement

Following Donald Trump’s announcement tonight that he’s running for President in 2024, DeSantis Watch Constituencies Director Natasha Sutherland issued the following statement:

“Once upon a time, one-term President Donald Trump could always count on lapdog Ron DeSantis to debase himself and surrender his dignity as Florida’s Governor for a pat on the head. Even as Trump’s reckless, racist, and inhumane policies led to widespread suffering throughout our country, he had no greater cheerleader and copycat than Ron DeSantis. With tonight’s announcement that Trump will once again seek the presidency and Ron’s campaign in waiting ready to launch at any moment, the battle of these two Florida men over who would best hurt marginalized communities, do the bidding of billionaires and corporate interests, and enact the strictest abortion ban, all in service of their own egos and ambitions, only deepens our commitment to ensure that neither ever steps foot in the White House.”
