Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) broke his silence on the repeated attacks by former President Donald Trump since his commanding victory in the 2022 midterm elections.
At a press conference on Tuesday a reporter asked DeSantis about Trump’s recent attacks and pending announcement of a 2024 presidential run.
“So we would like to know what you think about Trump’s big announcement and some of the less than flattering comments he has made about you,” the reporter said.
DeSantis avoided mentioning Trump in his response, which attacked the “corporate media”
DeSantis: “Well, you know, one of the things I’ve learned, like learn in this job is when you’re do, when you’re leading, when you’re getting, getting things done, yeah, you take incoming fire. That’s just the nature of it. I roll out of bed in the morning. I’ve got corporate media outlets that have a spasm. Just the fact that I’m getting up in the morning. And it’s constantly attacking and this is just what’s happened. I don’t think any governor got attacked more, particularly by corporate media, than me over my four-year term. And yet I think what you, 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”
