DeSantis brushes aside criticism from Trump
Gov. Ron DeSantis is brushing aside recent attacks from former President Donald Trump, who’s expected to announce a 2024 presidential run from his Mara Lago estate Tuesday night.
After DeSantis’ landslide reelection victory last week, Trump railed against the governor’s success, claiming credit for helping DeSantis get elected in 2018.
“One of the things that I’ve learned in this job is: When you’re leading, you’re getting things done, you take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it,” DeSantis said during a press conference in Fort Walton Beach on Tuesday.
DeSantis refrained from hitting back at Trump.
Though DeSantis hasn’t announced plans for a White House bid, he's widely considered a likely 2024 presidential candidate.
Trump is expected to announce plans for another presidential run at 9 p.m. eastern.
