Over the weekend, President Donald Trump (R) held a “Save America” rally in Sarasota. Although reports surfaced that Governor Ron DeSantis (R) did not find it best for President Trump to hold the rally in light of the horrible Surfside collapse, the President still moved forward with the event that draw a large crowd. This raises more questions ahead of the 2024 presidential election, which has drawn both Trump and DeSantis as potential candidates to challenge President Joe Biden (D).

Thousands attended the event on Saturday, braving rain to watch the 45th President of the United States speak, attack critics and comment on future elections.

In speaking to attendees, Trump fired back, saying that “this is the kind of persecution they’re doing as an example in New York, that you would see in Third World nations.” The comments were aimed at charges brought on to the Trump Organization and Allen Weisselberg, the Organization’s Chief Financial Officer. He pleaded not guilty to tax fraud charges that were brought by the Manhattan district attorney.

“It’s reminiscent of a communist dictatorship targeting its political opponents,” Trump added, noting that “there’s no depth to which the radical left will not sink to stop our Make America Great Again movement.”

Governor DeSantis did not attend the rally as he was onsite in Surfside, but the Governor has remained a loyal supporter of the President.

In the rally, Trump once again referenced a feeling of a double standard. This time, the double standard was aimed at prosecutors in New York.

“They leave Democrats alone, no matter how bad they are, but they mobilize every power of government to come after me, my family, my wonderful employees and my company solely because of politics.”

The former President admitted that “the harder I fight for you, the harder they come after me.”

In a recent poll regarding GOP candidates for the 2024 election, DeSantis scored higher than President Trump among conservatives.
