Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis launched his 2024 presidential campaign on Wednesday with a Twitter announcement with some ‘server overload’ issues.

While Elon’s team was working through the glitches and DeSantis spoke, former President Trump lit up the newly announced candidate.

In a flurry of press releases from Trump’s camp and video releases on Truth Social, Trump came out swinging.

The following quotes and stats are from the Trump camp issued during Gov. DeSantis’ announcement.

“Ron DeSantis’ botched campaign announcement is another example of why he is just not ready for the job. The stakes are too high, and the fight to save America is too critical to gamble on a first-timer who is clearly not ready for prime time. President Trump is the proven leader that will be ready on day one to turn the country around.” — Karoline Leavitt, spokeswoman for Make America Great Again Inc. 

Ron DeSantis Enters The 2024 Race With A Culture Of Losing, said the Trump Camp.

“With the Republican primary field continuing to expand, I have never been more confident that President Trump is the only person capable of steering our Country off this path of destruction to a nation filled with prosperity.” – Iowa State Senator Tim Kraayenbrink

“I stand firm in my support for President Trump to be our candidate to beat Biden and fix the mess he has created in DC.  I, along with many of my farmer and rancher neighbors in Iowa appreciated the hard stance he took to negotiate fair trade agreements and hold countries accountable for the promises they made.  No other candidate in my opinion has the courage he demonstrated to stand up and fight for what is fair for our farmers and ranchers.  His support for the agriculture community was unwavering and its time for him to be given the chance to finish what he started to keep the US as the leader in feeding the world and keeping rural America strong.” – Iowa State Representative Derek Wulf 

“I believe Trump is committed to rebuilding and investing in rural America and will provide tax relief for the middle class. While in office he secured historic trade deals to defend American workers and brokered historic peace agreements. I support his strong border policies and commitment to build the wall.  We will have energy independence once again, he will protect the unborn and put Iowa families first.  He held true on his promises while campaigning and delivered for the American people. I have faith he will deliver once again and pull us out of some of the worst decline that America has seen in my lifetime.” – Iowa State Representative Brooke Boden

“Ron DeSantis is unelectable because he doesn’t have the experience or the strength to stand up to special interest insiders. I support President Trump for countless reasons, and one of them is because he’s won the White House before and he will do it again.” – Tim Cahill, New Hampshire State Representative

Poll after poll has shown that New Hampshire Republicans simply aren’t buying Ron DeSantis’ phony attempt to whitewash his record as an ‘America Second’ career politician, who has pushed to destroy Social Security and Medicare, off-shore New Hampshire jobs to China, and raise taxes on the people of the Granite State.

Ron DeSantis Voted To Raise Your Taxes

In Congress, DeSantis cosponsored the so-called “Fair Tax Act” three times—in 2013, in 2015, and in 2017— which called for a new 23% national sales tax.

The Tax Policy Center found that Ron DeSantis’ “Fair Tax Act,” would have raised taxes on working, middle-class families.

Under DeSantis’ plan, 90% of earners would see a tax hike.

DeSantis’ proposed “Fair Tax” would have added trillions to deficits over 10 years.
