‘One Of The Worst States’: Trump Trashes Florida, DeSantis In New Attack
As Gov. Ron DeSantis mulls a potential run for the White House, former president Donald Trump fired off a series of new attacks Friday at the Florida governor while trashing the state as “one of “the worst states to live.”
In his latest series of insults, Trump sent out an email blast citing statistics that portray the state of Florida as being “among the worst states” to live, to work, to raise a family, to retire and many other issues.”
The email, detailed by The Herald Tribune, referred to statistics from organizations like the U.S. News and World Report, Money Inc. and the Florida Policy Institute, when talking about the state.
It also states that Florida’s cost-of-living has jumped by 10 percent over the last year and home prices in cities like Tampa and Miami have increased. The email also points to the ongoing fuel shortage in South Florida, where 47 percent of fuel stations remain empty in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area after severe storms flooded the cities.
Asked about the attack on Florida, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said, “The real DeSantis record is one of misery and despair. He has left a wake of destruction all across Florida and people are hurting because he has spent more time playing public relations games instead of actually doing the hard-work needed to improve the lives of the people he represents.”
The email is just the latest series of insults the former president has thrown at the Florida governor, who has yet to make a formal bid for the presidency.
A Trump PAC launched a “pudding fingers” attack ad last week directed at DeSantis, saying that he “loves sticking his fingers where they don’t belong. And we’re not just talking about pudding.”
