Ron DeSantis is accused of punishing Florida Republicans who assist Trump

Gov. Ron DeSantis is accused of cracking down on Florida state lawmakers who have backed Trump by turning down funding for their projects.

A pro-Trump state senator accused DeSantis of punishing the state’s Trump supporters:

State Senator @JoeGruters takes the floor and says @GovRonDeSantis vetoes on projects for his Sarasota District are because Gruters endorsed @realDonaldTrump for president.#FlaPol

Senator Joe Gruters accused Gov. DeSantis of punishing the people of his Sarasota district for endorsing Donald Trump for president. No one should be surprised that the same governor who tried to go to war with Disney and used his power to punish one of the biggest brands in the world would seek revenge on members of his state’s legislature who supported Donald Trump.

DeSantis vetoed $511 million from the state budget. Nearly $30 million came from the district of a senator who supported Trump.

The governor has not commented on why he vetoed the projects.

No matter how many crimes Trump racks up, DeSantis continues to lose ground to him. DeSantis and his super PAC promised that the American people would see him face off against Trump once Florida governor was officially in the running, but all that has happened is that Ron DeSantis lost even more ground to Trump.

Ron DeSantis looks small and doesn’t seem to have what it takes to challenge and defeat Donald Trump. DeSantis is the new Scott Walker. Governor DeSantis will outlast Scott Walker in the Republican primary, but his pettiness and thin skin are two reasons he appears doomed.

It looks like DeSantis is throwing a tantrum because his campaign is failing, and he’s taking it out on the Florida Republican congressman.
