President Trump incited a rivalry with DeSantis during the 2022 midterm elections, criticizing DeSantis for not turning down the possibility of running in the 2024 presidential election.
Just as radical Dems are indicting Trump & destroying the fabric of our nation with their Police State tactics, DeSantis pathetically runs to the liberal media on orders from his RINO establishment owners to attack my father.

"He's following orders from his never-Trump billionaire donor friends and putting his personal path to power ahead of doing the right thing and standing with us against the leftwing Police State," commented Trump Jr., adding that "we all saw the warning signs when Karl Rove, Paul Ryan, JEB!, and the rest of the RINOs all began praising him and hyping him up for President, but after this week, it's clear he's totally owned by the anti-Trump establishment."
Trump Jr. goes on to explain that he's never criticized DeSantis in the past. However, "when I saw him say at his press conference that he was focused on 'real issues' and not the radical NYC DA weaponizing the law against his political opponents, I finally decided enough is enough" he shared.
"If you can't figure out that there is NO BIGGER ISSUE than fighting back against the weaponization of the law against political opponents, you aint MAGA," Trump Jr. warned, calling DeSantis a "fraud."
"Frauds like Ron pretend to be MAGA to get votes, but at the end of the day he's nothing more than CONTROLLED OPPOSITION begin run by the establishment," he further expressed.
