Trump Says He Will Get DeSantis’ Supporters

Having been endorsed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former President Donald Trump is hoping to secure the support of DeSantis’ voters. With the New Hampshire primaries just a day away, Trump shared his hopes with Fox News’ Lawrence Jones while expressing feelings of honor for DeSantis’ endorsement.

According to Trump, he and DeSantis are not so different.

“I think it sort of magnifies, if I can say that, because he and I – look, I want strong borders, he wanted strong borders. I wanted low taxes. I gave you the largest tax cut in history, nobody ever, bigger than the Ronald Reagan tax cut, he wants that. I want a strong military. He wants that. He doesn’t want wars, although I may be a little bit moreso on that, not wanting wars,” he said.

“We have wars in places that nobody ever heard of before. And we’re losing, you know you talk about blood and wealth, we lose so stupidly. And a lot of the things he wanted, I wanted. In fact, I noticed people’s commentary, they’re saying well all of those people that would be for him, would be for Trump,” he added.

Trump praised DeSantis for endorsing him this quickly, as he commended his former rial for doing well having spent a lot of money and resources. Referring to DeSantis’ supporters, he said, “I think those people will all come to me.”

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley might also be nursing hopes of getting some of DeSantis’ supporters to his side, as he told Fox News that she thinks they are up for grabs.

“Think about it. His supporters love America, and they wanted a new generational leader. We give them that,” she said.

But DeSantis’ message was clear on Sunday – Trump is a better option for the country than Haley, who he slammed as a figure of warmed-over corporatism during his endorsement of Trump.

Stating that Trump is superior to President Joe Biden, he added, “I signed a pledge to support the Republican nominee, and I will honor that pledge. He has my endorsement because we can’t go back to the old Republican guard of yesteryear, a repackaged form of warmed over corporatism that Nikki Haley represents.”
