Trump Uncorks Wild Conspiracy Theory Behind DeSantis’ Battle With Disney



Donald Trump

Donald Trump on Sunday floated the theory that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ battle with Disney over the company’s opposition to his “Don’t Say Gay” bill was concocted by Disney and DeSantis—a likely rival in the 2024 presidential race—in order to make the governor look good ahead of the GOP primaries.

DeSantis even signed a law that he claimed ended Disney’s self-governing district in his state. But Trump believes the whole thing was a ‘hoax’ against him.

“Ron DeSanctimonious totally caved in his public relations inspired battle with Disney,” the former president wrote on his Truth Social platform. “That’s the only reason he went after them in the first place, to show Mr. Tough Guy. Disney maintained complete exemption from property & sales tax, tax-free bonds, and their incredible fast track permitting. They also gave big political contributions to DeSanctus.”

“The whole thing is a Hoax,” Trump said. “They probably worked together to make him look like a fighter.”

Trump also encouraged followers to read “preeminent authority on Disney” Richard Foglesong, who told the Financial Times earlier this month that DeSantis’ new legislation “didn’t really end Disney’s special advantages” but added that DeSantis’ appointees to the board overseeing Disney pose “a threat to Disney’s business interests.”
