Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded Tuesday to the comments made by former President Donald Trump after the midterm election.
During a press conference Tuesday, a reporter asked DeSantis what he thought about Trump’s big announcement and some of the “less-than-flattering” comments made by the former president.
“Well, you know, one of the things I’ve learned like, learned in this job is when you’re doing when you’re leading, when you’re getting things done, yeah, you take incoming fire,” DeSantis said.
“That’s just the nature of it. I roll out of bed in the morning and I’ve got corporate media outlets that have a spasm, for just the fact that I’m getting up in the morning and it’s constantly attacking. This is just what’s happens. I don’t think any governor got attacked more particularly by corporate media than me over my four-year term,” DeSantis said.
“And yet I think what you learn is all that’s just noise and really what matters is, are you leading? Are you getting in front of issues? Are you delivering results for people? And are you standing up for folks? And if you do that, then none of that stuff matters And that’s what we’ve done, we focused on results and leadership,” DeSantis said.
Former President Trump is scheduled to make a “big announcement” on Tuesday at 9 pm from Mar-a-Lago.
The night prior to the midterm election Trump said, “But not to detract from very the important even critical election. And I would say in the strongest way, it’s a country, saving election. I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday. November 15th at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.”
